- With our test material in place,…we are ready to make a start at fixing…our curly way wood UVs which…we can start to do by selecting the top piece…of our outer frame here, coming over to the Modifier panel…drop-down, and then typing in the word Unwrap.…Once the list is updated, we can click to apply…the Unwrap UVW Modifier to the selected piece of geometry.…Obviously, there are lots of ways to unwrap…any model in 3ds MAX not just game assets,…but in this instance, I'm going to go with one…that is both quick and simple to use.…
And it has the added benefit of getting us…pretty good results right out of the box.…Of course, once we are in the Unwrap phase of a project,…we need to be thinking about how…our materials and textures are going to be created.…Here, for example, I know that I'm going to be using…the Substance Designer application to create…all of the maps and material outputs that I will be using.…Because I know this upfront and because I know that…Substance Designer as an application is pretty good…
