Default Uv Transfer Problem

I don't know why this happens:

First, I select object 2, which is the origional object, and I duplicate it. Then I average the duplicated mesh's vertices twice. Then I UV mapped the duplicated one.

When I go to polygons-transfer UV sets, it completely destroys my UV map like shown.

So i thought, well, cant I just go back and un-average my duplicated mesh, and when I did, the UV map got completely shredded. So now I don't know if I should go ahead and re-map the origional mesh, or something else. Please guys... i need help!

hmm, well i dont have 6.5

but a quick solution i would take is:

-select the original dog

-shift select the uv'ed dog

-in animation menu: deform>create blendshape

and use the original dog as a blendshape on the uv'ed relaxed mesh. [after setting the blendshape value to 1 ofcourse] it should take the shape of the original no problems

thats because your vertex order has changed.

maybe you deleted a face or did split a polygon

on the duplicated mesh you were UV'ing.

its no longer the same mesh.
