UV Layout for Lightwave Users- Volume #1 & #2
UV Layout for Lightwave Users- Volume #1 & #2
UV Mapping has always been one of the most challenging and dreaded aspects for creating amazing textures for 3D models. 3D artists around the world know this pain as it can be a very lengthy process trying to get your UV Maps with as little "Texture Distortion" as possible with manual tweaking methods which is necessary in most typical 3D packages. In this video course 3D Instructor Adam Gibson will be showing how to get started fast using the amazing "UV Layout" Software Package with Lightwave 3D!! Although Lightwave 3D will be used in this course with UV Layout, the concepts and techniques can easily be used with any other 3D Software package like: Modo, Maya, 3D Max, 3D Coat, ZBrush, etc. When it comes to UV Mapping, UV Optimization is the Key to getting near perfect UV Maps. Manual Optimization Methods (in other words tweaking your maps by hand) with the typical checkboard pattern can be extremely long and tedious, frustrating, and not to mention cutting into your production time where you could be working on other more important things. Spending more time on modeling and the actual textures for you model can be immensely stolen by having to spend hours, days, weeks tweaking your UV Maps. With that being said "UV Layout" not only contains all the traditional UV Map editing tools, but has one of the industries top "Automated UV Map Optimizers" at a very low price. With a few mouse clicks and few seconds of your time, your UV Maps can be flattened and optimized with amazing accuracy which would in most cases be impossible with manual methods. In this course we demonstrate how to 1) Create all your UV Maps within UV Layout and 2) How to Import and Optimize UV Maps that have been Created in Other 3D Software Packages. Running Time: Volume #1- 2 hrs. 30 mins. and Volume #2- 3 hrs. 39 mins., High Quality (Screen-Res 1920 x 1080 pixels), Video Format: MP4 (.mp4), Level: Beginner.
