View Full Version : UV mapping

02-18-2008, 09:45 AM

Does anyone know of a good vid tutorial for learning how to UV map? I have the lightwave 8 book and video, but it doesn't give a step by step in the video.

I have to wrap wood texture around precise wood mouldings that have been supplied by the client as eps files. I have brought them into LW and extruded the geometry - but the texture has to be wrapped exactly as it would in real life.

Thank you for any help!

Steve Warner had some excellent little videos about UV-mapping on his site that are part of Essential LightWave v9 book. Don't have it yet, but book looks really good. Here's the link (http://www.stevewarner.com/html/uv_unwrapping.html)
