A small hint concerning Wings AutoUV...


(Jamesk) #1

Hey, just figured out a small glitch… If you have tried out the AutoUV-plugin for Wings 0.97 and noticed how the ‘AutoUV Map’-option suddenly appears to do absolutely nothing on some occasions, while it may work just as intended on certain models - make sure never to scale faces or edges down to zero size. That seems to cause the AutoUV to fail, resulting in a brief wait-cursor and nothing else… Unfortunately this is a common trick when you want to make some part of your model end up as a sharp point. It seems that the plugin can’t handle faces with one or more zero-length edges. You can use SELECT/BY/SHORT EDGES to find out if you’ve accidently created such nasties.
