3D Coat 3.5 for Lightwave Users-UV Mapping
In this videos series we show 3D students how to use 3D Coat and Lightwave 3D together as an easy and functional workflow and pipeline in your 3D projects. Although this video series uses Lightwave 3D as the final output for your 3D Coat work, the concepts and principles used here will work with all the most popular 3D programs like 3D Max, Maya, Softimage, Modo, Cinema 4D and many others.
In this Video Tutorial Adam Gibson shows a full blown project based session on how to perfectly UV Map a Suchomimus Dinosaur. The techniques and tools are shown to create UV maps with no overlapping UV's. Good UV mapping skills are needed to create great texture maps for your characters and 3D object. This video holds the information you need to start making great UV maps for your own projects.
