Default quick texturing question

When I lay out UV's can I take multiple UV Snapshots with only a few UV's in the box take a snap shot and then put other UVs in and repeat process, or is it mandatory to put all UV's in at one time in one snap shot?
The reason I ask this is because I have a scene where some of the detail I'm doing transfers back in blurry because I had to shrink the UV quite a bit to get it to fit with all the other UVs
Another question is, they don't have to be a blinn when importing them back into Maya do they? The only bit of texturing I've done so far is for the low poly character they used a blinn, but it's too shiny, can I just use a lambert or anything else? Although I only know a little bit about blinn and lambert, and very very very little about Phong...

1st question: Yes, you can. Just make sure you donÕt move the UVs that you took snapshots of.

2nd question: You can use any material you want.

Does this answer your questions?

Any other problems or questions?

if I can't move the ones I just took a snapshot of how do I get a snapshot of the other ones when I want to put them in place?
I appreciate the help

You deselect the object that you already UV mapped (and took a snapshot of), and it wonÕt show up in the UV editor.
