Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the UV Texture Editor, part of Maya 2015 Essential Training.
…If we want more precise control over how a texture maps…to a polygonal object, we can use the UV Texture Editor.…Which gives you very discrete control.…So let's take a look at this wagon.…I've got the body of the wagon here.…And let's take a look at it in the Attribute Editor.…You'll see that we have a wagon material applied.…So let's put a bit map into the color channels.…We're going to go into color, select add node, and we're going to add a file.…
And select the file called wagon,jpeg.…And that's just a red texture with the label of the wagon on it.…So I'm going to go ahead and select Open.…And as you can see this doesn't really map, if we…hit six to texture map it we're not really seeing any mapping.…Well, just like with anything else we can certainly create some UVs.…So, I'm going to do Create UVs and let's…go ahead and maybe do something like Cylindrical Mapping.…And you can see that I can get the map on there, but…it's also going on both sides, and it's not as controllable as I want.…
So let's say I want more discrete control.…
