Unhappy Disordered UV!

Hello, I'm new in maya, And I've a stupid question about UV...

I've modeled a body. Now I wanna give it a texture but UV has been disordered! Here's the screenshot: http://img.majidonline.com/pic/277993/xxxxbu.jpg

I thought I have to use Unfold order, So I selected the object and Unfold it. You just see what happened to the UV guy: http://img.majidonline.com/pic/277995/xxxxau.jpg

Please help, I'm an amateur.

First step, get some new hosting for your images. Can't see anything.

Did you mapped your UV?

I see images, but they're sadly not the ones you intended.

Use Imageshack.com to host your image instead. Gotta login nowadays (used to not even have to) but it's a good host.

Hey mostafajoon, even without the screen shots I can probably guess what they show. The uv tools in maya are very powerful, but you need to know how to use them, otherwise you'll end up in a mess almost every time. Best place to start is google - "maya uv unfold tutorial". Plenty of results. This one looks good.

That made me chuckle - you are not serious are you?

There is a reason that so many artists use 3rd party unwrappers - either standalone or as plugins (Unwrella, Ninja, Roadkill, etc): Maya's UV-unwrapping sucks big time. Autodesk realised this too and added half-decent UV-unwrap functionality via their "Bonus tools" - which you have to download manually.

Suggestion to the original poster: Get Maya Bonus Tools or a 3rd party unwrapper such as Unwrella, Ninja or my personal favorite: Roadkill UV. Automatic unfold in Maya is only decent as a starting point, or for unwrapping lowpoly objects imo.

I'm with djx. Never really had a problem with Maya's UV tools. They aren't the most intuitive, and I butted against them for years (before roadkill, uv layout etc were available) but they kind of clicked one day. The uv unfold tool can do 99% of what you need, its just learning how to use it.
