- How does the Wizard do it?…Well, our friend Mickey's gonna help us…dissect the Wizards inner workings.…Let's go back to our BodyPaint 3D Paint layout.…Let's click on the Wizard.…Let's bring it down here in the middle…for no other reason other than for…balance of the yin and the yang.…I have no idea why I just said that. Anyway.…Step one: select objects. If you see here, we have…a full hierarchy of all the objects that are in our scene.…
And, basically the Wizard is asking us…how many objects here…would you like me to apply materials and UVs to?…And currently we selected all the objects.…We can deselect all and select all…or deselect and just activate a few.…Anyway, I'm going to leave it.…I'm actually going to get rid of everything except…for the body just to show exactly what it does.…The next thing is to press Next.…Step 2: UV Setup. Recalculate UVs.…
As you remember, none of our objects had UVs.…And, what I can do is go Previous or close this down.…I can go to my Standard layout or Startup layout.…You will see that all the objects are polygon objects…
