View Full Version : Copy UV set?

10 October 2005, 07:22 AM
this might be a stupid one, but i want to do the following
I have 2 same meshes, with 2 different UV sets, and now want to copy the UV set of one Mesh to the other. I know theres a function to do it, and I allready found the copy UV set function, but i dont seem to find the "paste" function to place the UV set on the second mesh.
Anyone, please?

1.) select the mesh you want to copy the UVs from
2.) shift-select the mesh you want to copy UVs to
3.) goto Polygons>Transfer>Options, tick the UV box and transfer

hope that helps,

i have an object and I need two different UV sets, I created one for the detail and one for the color.

im trying to switch between the two and it doesn't want to switch. i've tried transfering the UVs from an miported version of the model and it only wants to overwrite the color UV set.

My questions:
-1--How do I transfer the UVs from one object onto the new one but into a new UVset?
-2--What is the correct way of switching between UVsets?
-3--How can I link the Color or diffuse map up to one UVset and the Detail map up to the other UVset?

Hopefully someone can shed some light on these issues for me.
