Join Joel Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Unwrapping the nails, part of Game Asset Creation: Stylized Wooden Crate.
- Having taken care of the wooden portions…of our crate model, time in this video…to take a look at unwrapping the nails.…To do that, let's select one of the nails here…and come into Isolate mode by clicking on…the Isolate selection toggle.…Over in the Command panel,…I'm going to drop down the Modifier List,…start to type unwrap, and press Enter to select…the Unwrap UVW modifier.…And then come into Edge of Object mode.…Now unlike the box-based geometry…that we have been unwrapping so far,…our nail here has, as you well know,…been constructed from a cylinder.…
And so we'll need a slightly different approach.…After hitting F3 to see our edges a little better then,…let's select the ring of edges on the back here…and use the Loop XY Edges button.…What this will do is separate the point or tip of the nail…from the nail head.…And the reason for this being that,…as we're never going to see behind the nail in a game,…we already have the perfect spot…in which to place our UV seam.…Let's convert the edge selection over to Seams then,…
