Join Thanassis Pozantzis for an in-depth discussion in this video Unwrapping Mookie's arms and hands, part of Up and Running with Bodypaint in CINEMA 4D.
- To save time, I'm only going to…unwrap one hand and one foot.…So let's go and select a few polygons here, select Geometry,…select Connected and then hide Unselected, fabulous.…When you're dealing with hands…it's a good practice to separate…the hand from the rest of the arm.…So let's do that. Move tool and Edge selection,…let's go here, click shift, double click.…
Shift double click, it doesn't move.…Shift double click goes that way.…All the way around we have a nice loop here.…Let's check and see if it's continuous.…Fill selection, it is and what I will do…is select this and just hide it, hide selected.…The next thing, Edge, Move tool,…and we are going to slice under the armpit all the way down.…
Click, shift double click, that is a nice cut.…Let me view the arm from this angle.…Let me select a few points to pin them down.…So I think these, and these, and these, will do for now.…Great, so we have our cut. We have our pinpoints.…Let's select all our UV Polygons.…Let's go to UV Mapping, Projection, Frontal, Relax, On, On,…
