Default UV Unwrapper- Ultimate Unwrap 3D

I read about the updated release of this multi format UV unwrapper on the CG talk forums and am currently trying the demo. I am finding it a very useful tool. I was finding unwrapping UV's in Maya rather difficult; this seems to make things easier and the demo is free to try. Worth a look at;

UV editing in Maya is actually pretty easy, IMHO. However, it can get tedious and repetitive, which is why I wrote dannyUvTools. These MEL scripts use Maya's built-in mapping and UV editing features. Nothing quite as elaborate as Ultimate Unwrap, but at least it's all internal to Maya, is cross-platform, and free.

Cool Danny,
I have no real good experience with texturing.. hopefully this will help me texture my critter in simplymaya's tournament.

Thanks,
George

I'll give that a try too, thanks. I know some people find UV mapping and editing easy, but I am not one of them. 8)
