Ok guys,

I'm going to kill the guy who created model unwrapping. I have been trying to unwrap my saber for about, well, forever and still havent gotten any further than before. Gmax is a great modeling program but when it comes to the topic at hand, I feel like blowing it up. I've asked this question a few other times, all with great answers (and thanks to the guys who helped) but they all turned up to be dead ends. If anyone knows either 1. a better way to way to unwrap in gmax 2. where I can get an Ultimate Unwrap 3d clone or even the original that I dont have to shell out $30 for or 3. someone that will make the mesh for me and walk me through it so I dont have to ask again, that would be awsome.

Thanks again guys. I'm just writing this but I know you guys will help. Thats what makes this board great!


Here is my WIP (copy and paste guys)

Unwrapping isn't that hard. It just takes time, like anything else. You don't learn how to be good at it for a while. And those programs that automatically unwrap models suck donkey balls.

Check this vid out. Very useful to learn how to unwrap effectively.

I've been meaning to learn how to unwrap models. I think I'll have
a look at your vid kman. This might prove useful since I know nothing of the subject.

Hey Kman, I tried out that video and it didn't have picture or sound. Do I need any particular codec?

There're two models out right now that are absolutely at a stand still, so I figured I'd at least make an attempt at learning this so I can help them out.
