HI

I remember in maya 8 if you created a cylinder there was an option somewhere to decide how you wanted to appear in the texture editor. It was an automatic option and you could see about 2-3 different layout options.

- cylinder (rectangle with circle top and bottom)
- cylinder (rectangle with triangle top and bottom)
etc....

Does anybody know what button this is and does it appear in Maya 8?

or was it something more to do with the primative creation?

Thanks

Wayne

Yes, this is under the Create UVs drop-down menu under the Polygons menu set in Maya 8.5. I expect it to be the same under Maya 8.

- cylinder (rectangle with circle top and bottom)
By default a polygon cylinder should have this layout option.

- cylinder (rectangle with triangle top and bottom)
If you choose Create UVs > Spherical Mapping, you should get this kind of UV layout.
