Why is UVW mapping important?: Unreal Engine: Materials for Architectural Visualization

UVW mapping plays quite a big part in Unreal not only in terms of textures but also in the lighting. Seams and layouts can make texturing either easier or harder. On top of this fact, Unreal uses 2 UV map channels: one to store texture UVs, and the other for Lightmass UVs which is Unreal's indirect lighting engine. Knowing how Unreal uses UVW mapping is essential to the texturing and asset workflows.
