  • Lightwave - Cubic Projection UV Maps

    Does LW not have cubic projection when creation a UV map? I'm not used to doing UV's in LW. All it shows is Planar, Cylindrical, Sphere, or Atlas. What am I missing?

    Thank you if you have a chance to respond.

    The tool you are searching is Texture Guide (found under Map->UV/Texture->More)
    It also allow you to take the first color texture found in a specific surface as a primarly input.

    hope this helps

      Thanks, Chris. I'd recently learned about Texture Guide but didn't think of trying that at all. I'll give it a go.

      Oh, and btw, how much have you used Houdini, out of curiosity? I really like it, though I have a long way to go. I eventually want to be able to create semi-complex models and try changing something in the early stages of the model, and then re-cooking. I've heard it's pretty amazing.

        Thanks. All these years later your response saved someone's life!
        Many years of seeing the name "Texture Guide" and I never knew what it was for!
