Thread: Unwrapping models for UV painting?

  1. #1

    Unwrapping models for UV painting?

    What's the current "favorite" method for doing UV unwrapping of models? I was looking for William Vaughan's old "Unwrap using Cloth FX" tutorial and found a couple of threads suggesting that's not the preferred way to do it anymore (most recent was from 2010!)

    Is there something better that I'm not aware of?

    Failing that, does anybody have a link to Vaughan's old tutorial? I swear I downloaded it but now, of course, I can't find it...

    Here's a video I did showing ABF UV Unwrap, using sets to save edge selections:




    And here (at the top of this thread) are details on the UV techniques I use, with some info on how to use the tools:

    You may want to look at Ivan's 'Tutorials' thread where he also goes over ABF Unwrap. It's current.
