unfolding question

Hi. What's the best way to unfold geometries? Maya's unfolding tool in UV texture editor doesn't seem to work well all the time. I know there are some plug ins which can generate better results. Is that the way to do it? If so, which plug-ins are the best? I'l like to know that. Thank you.

I recently had to unwrap some UVs for the first time. I found these short videos on the YouTube Maya Learning Channel very helpful.

Unfolding a UV Mesh

Other than that, there's RoadKill, or Headus UV Layout. Roadkill is free. I'm sure there are others too, but these are the two I've heard about the most.

Thank you Gonzalimator. The video was better than most of others I have seen before and very helpful.
