Join Joel Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Peel mapping tools, part of 3ds Max 2018: Mastering UVW Mapping.
- [Instructor] The Peel rollout offers a variety of tools…for working with UVW mapping coordinates,…that range from quick and easy minimal click solutions…going all the way up to more complex…but highly configurable controls, such as Pelt mapping.…As Pelt mapping will be the subject…of its very own exercise, though,…we are going to focus in this video…on the rest of the tools found in the Peel rollout.…Indeed, what we cover here will help…give us a good grounding for our Pelt mapping lesson,…given that many of the options we look at here…will need to be used when working with Pelt mapping also.…
To make a start, then, let's select our head geometry again,…hit the peak, so that we can focus in on the geometry,…and then, of course, come across to the Modify tab…in the Command panel where we can access the Peel rollout.…Now initially, the tools here are unavailable…as we need to make use of sub-object modes…in order to gain access.…For the majority of our work, then,…we will probably find ourselves in Edge mode.…
Instructor Joel Bradley explains what UVWs are, how they affect textures, and why they are needed. He also reviews the different mapping spaces that are available and how procedural maps are used in texturing. Then he progresses to the hands-on portion of the course, starting with mapping simple shapes and models with the UVW modifier. He also reviews advanced topics, such as unwrapping and editing UVs with the UVW Editor. Finally, he introduces blended box mapping, for when you need to get a model ready for texturing quickly.
