UV MAPPING MADE EASY! UV Unwrapping in Maya 2015 tutorial

I show how to make character UV MAPPING a simple process in this short tutorial. Maya 2015’s new Unfold 3D makes unwrapping a snap! In addition, I show how to create UVs even more quickly using Maya’s BONUS TOOLS!

UV Mapping is necessary to convert a 3D object – like our character model – into a 2D shape, so that we can paint on it. In a way, the UV unwrapping process is akin to disassembling the character model.
