Strategies for UV Mapping Organic Models
In this detailed tutorial you will learn how to unwrap a complex organic mesh of a human model from start to finish, and explore several strategies for dealing with the typical problems you might encounter with UV mapping a complex organic model.
After watching the training you should have the skills to unwrap any organic mesh, regardless of its complexity, and have a much clearer idea of the best way to tackle challenging unwraps.
This tutorial is designed to be a companion to the Unwrapping Hard Surface Models video that preceded it and demonstrates a completely different set of techniques tailored specifically to organic models.
Creating good UV maps is the foundation to good texturing, and with clean and distortion-free UV maps that have the minimum of seams you will be able to texture more effectively, allowing you to maximise the resolution of your textures across your models and also have the most flexibility in your texturing workflow. The course will also demonstrate how to work with UDIMS for those times when you need the most resolution possible.
So if you want to improve your UV mapping skills and increase your speed and efficiency in this difficult stage of the 3D process, this video will demonstrate an effective workflow that will allow you to tackle even the most difficult models.
