View Full Version : Diamant UV 1.2 Beta! Now with Modeling Tools!

12 December 2008, 09:42 AM
Hi everyone,

I have updated Diamant UV to version 1.2 beta. It is a free beta of the first fully integrated Automatic UV solution for Maya. This version has tons of fixes and features including the first version of Modeling tools. Great for retopologizing!

If you guys have not checked out this tool, I'd recommend at least giving it a shot. Its a very production driven tool that does a ton more than just uving. There are 2 new videos that show some of the new features of this version as well as some workflows.

Christophe Desse also has created a tutorial video for the gnomon master class which is going on right now.

Any feedback is welcome. This version is for 8.5 to 2009.. both 32 bit and 64 bit.

all information can be found at .. you need to register to get to the forums for the download..


here are links to the new videos. check them out!

Watching the modeling video right now and I'm really liking what you demonstrate.

Downloading right now. From what I saw in the video, this might be right up my alley.

I'll leave a comments & crits later on. :thumbsup:

Holy guacamole! How have I never heard of this? It's amazing.

Does this plugin work on OS X? Some of that stuff seems a little too advanced to run only off MEL.

12 December 2008, 08:32 PM
there is no OSX build right now.... and yes, its more advanced than mel :) Its done in the API.. C++.. so its a plugin that needs to be compiled for specific versions of maya.. hope you enjoy!


12 December 2008, 09:41 PM
Any plans for an OSX version?


12 December 2008, 12:12 AM
not as of now... i need to look into it a little further.. hopefully it shouldn't be too hard to do.. i wouldn't expect it really too soon though.. sorry guys..
