UV Mapping a Torus?

I have a somewhat distorted torus - and I need to apply a texture to it. Does anyone have any clue as to how to map it? I just can’t seem to figure out any way to do it. I kind of know intuitively what I want the Unwrap to look like, but I can’t seem to, well, DO it.

I tried all sorts of unwraps including wings’ AutoUV with little luck.

could you post a pict please,

also do you want to know how uv mapping works or how to unfold the mesh?


I know how it works. I just wanted to know how to unfold the mesh

Check out this link. It may help.


figured it out.

Gosh! That is a very very very very handy tutorial! I’ll download it and add it to my big file of blender tuts!
