Distortion of UV map


Recommended Posts

  • Member

I unwrapped several items from my 3d scans now and usually the results are acceptable.

But executing "Save Contour" mostly produces a message like "Warning! It seems some islands are stretched...The percent of distortion is...."

Sometimes I have values of 30-50% distortion but the cutting patterns are not that much messed up.

Are the values an average of the whole distortion or is it just the maximum stretching of a specific island? Is there a way to minimize this?

I usually use "Cloth Relax" before I save the map to an .eps file.
