Mudbox Automatic UV question???


I took a really simple base mesh from maya and sculpted a high res mesh i mudbox.
We can't waste any more time so I was thinking of creating automatic uv's in Mudbox...So is displacement,bump and texture map going to look good in maya.Uv's look like bunch of squares so is it going to render good in maya,?

sorry for my english

thanks "-D

yes it will work if you have enough texture resolution... most of the time you will need more than one uv tile to get a clean result.... cause mud needs a min resolution per face...otherwise it will bleed into the other faces... you could do a quik test and paint on your mesh... if you get bleeding artefacts you need more uv tiles...

i recommend to do proper uvs... get the headus uvlayout demo its the best tool out there...

Do I need to retopologise my mesh.My base mesh is a lot different than my sculpt...But it is a static mesh,a sculpture so I was thinking of extracting maps from level 4 to level 7.Can headus handle dense meshes?

depends on the mesh... i cant say it without seeing what you have...

ok...this is base mesh

This is level 4

level 7

Only this part of mesh is going to be in video
