I reinstalled maya now cause I´m depressed, this is hopeless. in this tut on
it sounds so easy. and at my first attempt, when not really knowing what I did everything worked out well. but now after hours of reading and trial & error that damn UV thing just WONT transfer. I just can´t figure out what is going on here! this guy from the tut said ".. as long as no geometry is changed and the numer of vertices is the same". so I thought ->extracting<- leaves me the same number of verts. but logically a extracted geometry though adds verts. whatever. I did exactly what the tut told - no chance. if nobody can help, I will look for another way to lay out the UVs. but in my opinion this tutorial - if it would keep its promise - is best way to lay out the UVs of my fish.
what is this "disabled selection"? is an obj with different counts of vertices a disabled object for transfering? seems so.
still would be great, if someone knows and could lend a helping hand!
everything starts and ends in the right place at the right time.
