Mastering UV Mapping in 3ds Max

File

UV Mapping is a necessary step in the process of completing most CG projects. It can be a difficult topic to understand, and one even harder to master. While there are many tools and 3D packages available that offer options to create UVs. 3ds Max includes one of the best toolsets available - straight out of the box.


Mastering UV Mapping in 3ds Max is intended for anyone, regardless of your skill level or discipline. And I've tried very hard to make it as concise and easy to follow as possible, with each topic or technique contained in its own chapter/video.


Starting out we’ll look at the fundamentals and theory of UV Mapping and discuss what it is, how it works and some ways to approach it. The first thirty-seven chapters of this course are dedicated to building a solid understanding of UV Mapping fundamentals, tools, and techniques - covering all of 3ds Max's mapping tools in extensive detail.


The second half covers the entire process of unwrapping a complex 396 piece Gear Cutter model from start to finish in real-time. In the end, you’ll have a fully unwrapped, packed, distortion-free, subdivided 6.7 million polygon model ready to texture.


This 32-hour course covers all of my personal mapping techniques and everything I know and have learned over the 17+ years I've been using 3ds Max and is entirely recorded in real-time with real-time narration.


You'll learn professional techniques to quickly and cleanly unwrap all types of geometry. And how to achieve truly distortion-free UVs regardless of polycount, even on meshes with hundreds of thousands, or millions of polygons.


In addition to the Gear Cutter model, you’ll get 42 additional models and textures to use throughout various chapters of the course. As well as 60 custom made diagrams and info-graphics covering Comparisons, Layouts, Examples, Tips, Breakdowns and the Pros & Cons of a number of different UV Mapping scenarios.


The Course Includes (177 Files):

  • 73 Videos (1080p .MP4)
  • 60 Custom Made Diagrams & Infographics
  • Gear Cutter Asset
  • 42 Additional Models & Textures
  • Mesh Prep Script
