Thread: UV mapping a human leg

    UV mapping a human leg

    Hi,

    I need a UV map on a leg for mapping an even gridlike image. Only the leg, feet is not important.

    Can someone help me? Is there a tutorial somewhere?

    Thanks!!

    Plain ol' cylindrical mapping works as well, though you will have to manually open the seam along the inside of the leg.

    In this case, though, ABF is the tool of choice.

    So depending on how detailed the geometry is, it's going to fall somewhere between a simple cylindrical mapping, and a complex ABF unwrapping. If all you're trying to achieve is to get a grid-like texture to appear uniformly across the leg's surface, I'd definitely recommend trying a simple cylindrical mapping first (and then generate an ABF unwrapped UV map only if the cylindrical mapping results weren't adequate to your needs).
