Export a single texture sheet...?

Recommended Posts

Hi

Is it possible to export a model's textures into one single sheet? I have a model all textured and ready to go back into 3ds Max, but when I try to export the textures, they're done individually. When the model was first brought into 3D Coat, all the UV islands were on the same sheet, but they could be isolated within Coat based on its material IDs.

Thanks

The Sub-Materials are relative to the UV maps you have in the scene. If you have 2 Sub-Materials, then you have 2 UV maps.

UVset => Surface Material

Retopo group => Paint object

Oh, cool. Thanks for sharing that. I could be wrong, but wouldn't that be an issue when exporting them out and loading them back onto the model in 3ds Max/Maya...? I take it it doesn't affect the UV cuts that have been manually done in a 3D software package...?

EDIT: Also, is there a quicker way of selecting whole islands when in UV mode? So far I'm only able to select individual faces.

You need to export the model too, Uv cuts are done inside the model not the textures.

Quicker way to select is Add clusters > Islands

Hope it help
