Material texture and lighting within the 3D modeling Community is a skill in itself. Hopefully this will help those that are trying to go down the road of a texture artist. part one covers editing multiple uv's at the same time on a model in Maya using the Maya UV editor. part ...more
Uv's in Maya
This video shows you how to assign textures to uv's on models in Maya. This is a traditional method but fundamental to understand. You'll be painting the textures on UVs using Photoshop. NOTE: This link is to a Flash version of the first 5 minutes of this hour long tutorial. A ...more
Learn how to edit UVs on an object and how they are made in Maya. These videos are made for a very young audience and are very easy to follow.
This Maya 7 video tutorial teaches you how to make and use UV space in Maya 7 from Autodesk. This video is from the "Maya Basics" course. Shaders alone do a lot to give a realistic feel to various materials, and adding textures to the mix gives them even more impact. See how ...more
Maya 2009, when it was released in 2008, made the process of working with UVs a lot easier. This video will teach you how to use the UV enhancement tools in Maya to unwrap a model of a head, removing some of its distortion.
Creating good UVs with Maya can be tough, and get tougher depending on what type of object you are trying to unwrap. This short video tutorial covers how to create accurate UVs for long objects like rope or, in this case, shoelaces. This is a simple technique, but one that sho ...more
These videos will show you how to create a UV map in Autodesk Maya. Using the proper software and this human head model you will be able to follow the step-by-step instructions in this series of three videos and learn what UV mapping is and how it works. Part 1 of 3 - How to U ...more
Maya 2009 introduced a lot of cool new UV tools to the already-powerful Maya 3D modeling software. This two-part video will teach you how to use some of these features to cut apart a 3D model of a hand by its UV edges. This technique is perfect for very fast organic UV unwraps ...more
In this tutorial you will learn how to UV map a motherboard box in Maya. This Maya software tutorial covers basic UV mapping procedures and using UV's to place textures on an object like a motherboard box.
In this 3D modeling software series you will learn how to model organically with polygons in Maya. For this example, you will learn how to model a dolphin. PART 1: we go over the beginning steps of modeling a dolphin with polygons. We cover how to split the model in half from ...more
Learn how to use the UV texture editor in Maya to create tileable textures.
This tutorial explains how to use the Maya uv editor to set up an object to be imported into the Unreal Engine so you can shoot at the object.
This is a guide to making a very simple procedural texture for Maya. As with all procedural textures, the basic texture can be refined and added to. It's a texture! Open up the Hypershade (Window > Rendering Editors > Hypershade). This is where you can edit any textures as w ...more
3D modeling is usually a very long and complicated process. Manipulating the thousands to millions of vertices, faces, and triangles to the correct shape you want is just the first part of the process, and can take a good while depending on the level of detail needed. From th ...more
