Texel Density Checker 2.0 [UPDATE 02.10.19]

Ah ok bro , yeah , this morning I was painting my texture atlas and I realised about texel density, does work with overlapping uv?? I am not big fan of overlapping uv , but in this case I am using a lowpoly building, so it is cool stuff to overlap the uv island… In the case I do nOt want to loose my organization of the uv position, this addon could change the positions of the overlapping uv island… Ok , thanks for your this great addon , I would put in practice :smiley:

This add on is awesome to use with ue4. But in bledner 2.8 it shows an error (https://imgur.com/oJZNmKs). Can you please add support for 2.8 blender?

Blender 2.8 still develop and many API functions don’t work.
After September 19, Blender Developers will Finalized Python API and I begin porting addon for 2.8

Current 2.8 Development Roadmap https://code.blender.org/2018/06/beyond-the-code-quest/

Ok understood

UPDATE 1.0.8 (19.07.18)

-Set TD Methods: for each island or average TD value
-Select Faces with same TD


I keep getting an error message on some meshes. Most meshes are fine but for some reason some just do not play nicely with the addon. I’m trying to ‘set my TD’

Thanks for the addon though. It’s the best I’d found around!

You try set density 0 px/cm. It is impossible) Please, try set any value grater by zero.
P.S. Try this case in 1.0.7 and this work. Hmmm…

Thanks for bug report, I add check for this case.

the value was set is 0.001. Here’s another example with the density set to 5

Download version 1.0.7 until I don’t fix that. It’s my fault

I just tried 1.0.7 and i’m still getting the same error message on some objects

Problem Solved. It is not a bug :slight_smile:

Today was be change some API functions. If you use today’s build, download updated addon. I will upload different versions of addon with timecode in name. Example, Texel_Density_1_0_8_280-beta-1108 (from 08 November)


Hi, just wondering, does “Selected Faces” option work on 2.8, I tried multiple times and all uv islands are affected.

OK I get why now, the “Keep UV and edit mode selection in sync” option is affecting this addon.

Thanks for feedback! Please, download updated version

Fix bug, when “Set TD” work incorrect with “UV Selection sync” option.
