Question: Project an image onto an objects UV map

I want to overlay an image onto another, unwrapped, textured object and combine it with the objects texture to a single image file as if it was done by texture painting.



How could i do this? I have been searching for a solution but to no avail - really hope you can help me! :slight_smile:

Couple of ideas that spring to mind (you have failed to say what renderer you are using so nothing specific)

  • UV project modifier http://www.blender.org/manual/modifiers/modify/uv_project.html
  • Create a new uv map using project from view and use that to mix the overlay texture with the base texture
  • Use projection texture paint to paint the image onto the base texture
    You can use Render / Bake to bake to a single image
