Join Joel Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video UV mapping the support, part of Game Art: Model & UV Map a Low Poly Character.
- [Instructor] As we have been doing,…and indeed as we will continue…to do throughout the rest of the course,…having modeled the piston arm support…in the previous video,…we are ready now to go ahead and get things unwrapped.…Let's first of all then select the mesh…and apply UVW map and unwrap UVW modifiers to the geometric.…Jump into edge selection mode,…and then select each end of our support.…We want to select the outer chamfered edge here…so as to remove the caps.…And, so, let's use the loop command…and then convert our selections to UV seams,…selecting a single edge on the underneath of our mesh.…
If we hit loop, this carries the selection…all the way around, which,…in this instance, is what we want.…We need to make certain…that none of the edges cross our seams here…as we do not want to split our end UV clusters in half.…We want a continuous selection…from the back seam of the model…all the way to the front,…but, once we have this,…we can convert our selection to seams.…Jumping in to polygons of object mode now,…
