So, I’ve marked all my seems and unwrapped!
So far so good.
On the UV map each area is very small and there is lots of space between each island
So, I pressed ctrl-a and ctrl- p as per this documentation (http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Doc:2.6/Manual/Textures/Mapping/UV/Layout_Editing)
Any ideas as to what I’m doing wrong?
Post your blend file to http://www.pasteall.org/blend/ so users can see what you are doing
Cheers for the suggestion. Here it is:
This is the uv layout in your file
Using Ctrl+A and then Ctrl+P gives this
You can change the packing gap between the islands in the 3dview toolshelf (T)
There does not appear to be lots of space between your islands (looks like its zero space)
Very odd. Maybe my blender is configured differently? I’ve included a screenshot to show you what mine looks like:
How would i export this uv as an image so I can create my textures in gimp or some other package?
