View Full Version : how to copy UV maps from another model?

08 August 2005, 01:16 AM

My model lost symmetry and I deleted half and patched it back to restore symmetry. However I forgot that I already had a uv map created, and I had lost half of the UV map.

I have a backup version file that still has the full UV map, but I cant seem to paste and copy the UV from the backup to the latest file.

I have tried:

save vertex map.

copy UVs.

copy object from backup (so that the UV map follows it) to latest file and renaming the UV texture.

Kindly help.

umm if your model is perfect symmetric then you can just mirror the model and it will have the uv's.. then you can select the other half.. flip uv's and move it over if you want to have both sides layed out side-by-side. if thats not what you mean iam out of ideas... sorry :/
