Hi guys. Ive done my very first female head yesterday. ANd after eyelashes I need to texture it. Im slowly going over the tutorial of Inside Lightwave 7 step by step, and I stumbled upon this problem. In order to texture the skin of the whole head, I need to Unwrap it . ANd I cant seem to find the plug in anywhere in LW8.5, and when I try to plug the unwrap.p from the CD that comes from the tutorial a box appears saying somthing like: Windows cannot recognize the image, and states the address leading to the plug in program.

Now has there been any changes in the filename from LW7 to LW8.5?
The tutorial says I need to use cylindrical UV mapping and afterwards use Auto_texture, or so that would fit the painted image automatically. Now I know there are other ways, but Im hoping for something like Unwrap that works for LW8.5, but with a different name maybe.

Thereīs a unwrapper for modeler, donīt know if itīs free, though.

Try the Cloth fx unwrap technique, thatīs almost as good, if not better.
