Join Joel Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Relaxing UVs, part of 3ds Max: UVW Mapping.
- To help us take a look at the Relax tools…inside the UV Editor window, we're going to work…in this exercise with a slightly different portion…of our robot geometry.…Now we have, up to this point in our course,…already made use of the Relax tool a number of times.…What we haven't done, however, is explain just how…the available controls actually work,…which is exactly what we will be doing…for the duration of this video.…To get started, then, let's go ahead and select…the large vent geometry found…on the back of our robot character.…
And then, in order to keep our viewport display…as clean and readable as possible,…click on the Viewport Shading menu, come down to…the Display Selected fly out, and once again,…turn the Display Selected With Edged Faces option off.…If I got ahead now and open up the UV Editor window,…we can see that, once again, we do already have…an unwrap solution in place,…courtesy of 3ds Max's Pelt Mapping tools.…Clearly, though, the end result as seen in the viewport…does leave a little bit to be desired, in that we see…
