Join David Mattingly for an in-depth discussion in this video Projecting the rest of the textures, part of Digital Matte Painting Essentials 5: Camera Projection in Maya.
…Let's do one more projection map in real time.…This one for the towers.…What I want to emphasize here is that you don't…have to have one texture map for one piece of geometry.…You can have many pieces of geometry catching a…single texture map, and we'll do that for the towers.…Select the box that catches most of the towers.…Then the separate pieces that catch these other three towers,…with all of them selected, right click and choose Assign New Material.…
We'll name this one towers.…Let's go through this one more time; load…the color channel, right click Create as Projection.…What kinds of projection?…A Perspective Projection. What camera is projecting?…The Projection cam shape. What image do you want to project? Towers.tif.…Go back, and back.…Let's do the transparency map.…Click the checkerboard.…Let me mention that if you accidentally add…a texture map rather than a projection map…when you right click, which won't work for this project, go back to the main texture.…
Then you can break the connection to that…
