Join Joel Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Prepping the model for UV unwrapping, part of Game Art: Model & UV Map a Low Poly Character.
- [Instructor] With the low poly modeling…for this section of the model complete,…time to move onto our UVW mapping.…Now, ideally, of course, we would probably want…to take care of mapping before…creating any copied pieces of geometry, as we have here.…In truth, though, this will be such a…simple process in this instance…that the time difference involved will be negligible.…Again, though, you should feel free…to develop a workflow that suits you.…As we won't be needing the high poly geometry…for this particular exercise,…let's select both the low poly frame…and wheels in the view port,…exit, and then reenter isolate mode,…which will leave us with just the low poly geometry…on which we can work.…
Now, in order to make unwrapping…as easy as possible, we may want to make…a couple of tweaks to the existing topology on our geometry.…For instance, as we take a look…at the frame portion here, we see…that we have a couple of large ngons…on these cylindrical pieces…that could potentially get in the way…when creating UV seams for the mesh,…
