View Full Version : normalmap UV problems max

07 July 2007, 09:08 AM
im new to mudbox and the whole UV mapping thing (so this might be abit stupid) im having problems with extracting normal maps and displacement maps.

i think it may be the way i have laided out my UV's so i have attached images of my UV's laided out in 3ds max.
do you have any advice in laying out UVs?
