Join Ryan Kittleson for an in-depth discussion in this video Using UV maps, part of Mudbox 2013 Essential Training.
Before we can do any painting in Mudbox or extract any kind of maps for use in…other programs, we have to make sure that the model has a UV layout.…A UV layout is a flattened representation of all the polygons in the model.…It's kind of like a flat map of the world.…In this video, I'll show you how to view and tweak UV maps for a model so that textures can be created.…Mudbox is very limited in how it can edit UVs.…You'll definitely want to use another program to create the UV layout first, like 3ds Max or Maya.…
Mudbox is meant to work hand in hand with other programs that take care of the UVs.…For the most part, the way that Mudbox deals with UVs is under the hood.…The important thing is to know that a model has UVs before attempting to paint on it.…Let's open up the default Bull that comes with Mudbox.…First of all, let's take a look at the UVs by clicking on the UV View tab.…This shows us that the model already has UVs laid out in a pretty efficient way.…Mudbox doesn't have tools to lay out UVs this nicely, so this was probably done…
