Can't Export UV Map


#1

Hi,

I’ve had a good look through and can’t find how to export UV maps?

Hope someone can help.

What’s the end use? AFAIK UVW coordinates need corresponding geometry. Just export in your favourite exchange format.

I just need the UV map for Photoshop texturing…

Assuming you already have it, try a screen capture and open that in PS

That’s what I had to do but isn’t accurate - so is not possible?

Ah sorry, yes it is possible. Assuming you’ve unwrapped your model, you need to go to UV unwrap workspace, load or add a new texture into the texture editor, then create a UV mesh layer.

Sorry for huge delay - creating a texture - then going to layer in UV editor and making a uV mesh Layer works - many thanks !
