Join Kacie Hultgren for an in-depth discussion in this video Touching up UV maps, part of 3D Scanning with a Camera.
- In this video we'll explore another way…to touch up color with Photoshop,…by editing UV maps.…Now, up until now we really haven't talked…about the components that make up our full color mesh.…You might have noticed…that when you exported your files from Meshmixer,…there were a bunch of different files.…In addition to the OBJ, we also have these image files.…Now, take a look at the 3D panel in Photoshop.…You can see that we have these five texture maps.…
These are all flat image files…that are stretched over our mesh.…We can edit and touch-up those flat files.…All right, let's zoom out.…We'll go up to the "Move" tool.…We can see our whole lion head.…Now, click on the individual texture maps in the 3D panel.…You can see which maps are associated…to what part of our model.…
Let's take a closer look at texture map number one.…Up in the "Properties" panel, why don't you go to "Diffuse,"…and then choose "Edit texture."…That will open the PNG file for us to edit.…Now, in the properties panel, let's check "UV overylays."…
