textures - blend issues
I've built a char, he's complete in the model, blended the head in subdiv form, changed everything to polys, attatched head to body...just painted him up using hte automatic mapping.
now in the rendering for begining maya(learning maya 6 rendering p. 58), it warns that textures done this way run the risk of scattering in unpredictable ways if the mesh is deformed at all. And mine does as it has facial blends.
I'm trialing it as I go along each time i finish up the texture, i crank up the blend(such as eyebrows). naturally, the texture crawls and does funky stuff.
the options from the book that I've tried are
-creating a texure reference object.. doesn't work
-convrt to file textures...also doesn't work
tried searching on here for specific threads about this but the search turned up too many obscure requests.. arg
still trialing things. I'll keep you updated if I find the answer.. but if anyone has the easy solution,please~ let me know :bow:
I've never tried this painting in maya thing.. in fact im a bit out of touch with the hypershade since maya 1.0..
