View Full Version : Lightsaber UVW help..

05-31-2002, 10:29 AM
ok.. i tried my hand at modelling a lightsaber, and i think i'm pretty much done with it.. i've added the tags and all, but now i'm stuck with one more step.. the skinning.. i have no idea how to go about the UVW wrap and unwrap things.. =( can't seem to get it working fine for myself..

is there anyone out there who would be kind enough to UVW the saber model for me? you'll get all the credit you need.. i used gmax, by the way, so it's a .gmax file.. if anyone wants to help me out, email me at zombiespawn@yahoo.com or just leave a message here.. =) thanks!

here's some shots of the model..

but as far as i know, you cant do anything with the UV coordinates in gmax... i dont know of any programs that can turn the uvw map into a .jpg or .bmp.

Well, I have the exact same problem (well, i dont have the tags in yet but ive been mapping and havent had time :D) Im still waiting for someone to do it instead of giving out a huge ammount of links that just confuse me even more than I already am :(

since you cant search the forums and since there are only 7 or so pages i suggest you skim the titles of the threads or look at the ones ive created, ive mostly started threads asking about uvwmapping and such.
