Join Adam Crespi for an in-depth discussion in this video Breaking up the model for texturing, part of Maya: Game Prop Creation.
With my table complete, I'll start breaking up the model and getting the unwrap going.…I have modeled out the entire table, but really I'd like to unwrap parts of it and…then probably re-clone some pieces.…I can see where things can be deleted and re-cloned easily.…What I will do is make sure that I take one of each element.…I'm going to take three of the legs and delete them.…Delete one of the stretchers, and then I'll delete one of the stretchers underneath.…As for the top boards, what I think I'll do is to delete five of them.…I have got in there for kind of show and to see how it's going to look.…
I'm going to delete five, unwrap one, clone five and then use the preserve UVs…option to mess up the geometry on a few boards.…This will make for a much easier unwrap, and I can get stacked UVs automatically…as cloned objects that show UVs have stacked UVs.…Here's how I'll unwrap this. I'll start out with the leg as an example.…In my UV Editor, this already has coordinates on it.…Although if I put my checker material on, I can see that they're distorted.…
