After evaluating a surface and creating a grid of points, learn how to group UV parameters into logical groups to enable the creation of surface panels. To do that, we will expand on the last video to create rationalized rectangular panels.
- [Instructor] There are many different ways…we could group the points we created…in the last video to penalize the service into shapes,…such as rectangles, diamonds, or hexagons.…To do this, though, we would need to group our points…in structured ways.…Using the method which we developed in the last video…to evaluate the UV of a surface,…let's create groups of four points…to then create panels in the surface.…In the last video, we created a point…at regular steps in the UV space.…For each point, we need to create three more points…in the UV space to form a rectangle.…
Let's have a look at how we might solve this.…Currently, we are creating a point for each loop…in the U direction and V direction.…What we want to do for each loop…is to create a rectangle with four points.…So to do this, we'll need to create each point…for the individual rectangle…based on the current loop.…And, as we know, each point we create…is based on the UV parameters.…Therefore, as we know the U and V…will increment by one in each direction…
