What am I doing wrong?

Recommended Posts

Hey all - new to 3d coat but LOVING it -

 

But! Today - I can't for the life of me figure this out. 

I unwrapped everything and rearranged everything on the UV map... All great -

Then realized my seams weren't right. Even tho the 'colors' of islands changed when I removed UV path and added UV path (using UV path tool and ctrl enter) - I thought that's how you do it? It looked right color wise:

But still - when I zoom in I have this:

What the heck is happening here? :-(

 

If I unwrap it - it goes crazy. Stretches that area like crazy.

So I'm pretty lost as to how to get it to work. 

Any ideas? Thanks!

Actually not great.

Look closely on these areas. Especially on bottom UV spills. I think there was something wrong in the geometry at the beginning.

It is difficult to comment without open the model. Can you share it ?

Thanks Druh0o - yeah that overlap is what I'm talking about. (Although you're highlighting parts that aren't overlapping.)

Geo doesn't seem bad - I am able to remap the seam (as far as I can tell) - (it's not a loop but that's fine)

Infact - actually - in C4d the loops are fine

I'm just not aware of how to get that to update the UV's without ruining their positions that I've mapped out.

PS - you'll see the maps from c4d get that part right (rest is terrible). But when I automap - it does that and won't let me do anything else.

Carlosan! That's awesome! Can you tell me how you did it? Because... I need to learn! Thanks for taking that time - very appreciated.

Nothing new really.

Using your pics I create the seams.

Maybe the only difference is that I'm using latest version, do you ?

Thanks Carlosan - sounds like you  manually created all seams rather than auto. I was thinking I'd do auto then tweak - but it seems like once it gets set in its ways - it doesn't like to change. Of course - I am pretty new to it so I'm probably just doing it all wrong. 

I'll try doing it all manually and see if I can replicate what you're getting. I have a lot of other things to do this to so I want to make sure i'm getting it right. 

Thanks again!

Sorry for the delayed response.

I manually created all seams rather than auto, yes
