Introduction to UV Mapping in CX 7, Part 1
This video is a quick first look at UV Mapping in Design 3D 7, using a cube to explore the very basic concepts involved with UV mapping vs. projection mapping.
Note: I misspeak two times in this video. At about 51 seconds, I say I want to show the difference between UV Mapping and Texture Mapping: I meant to say the difference between UV Mapping and Projection Mapping.
This image should help with this concept. The first 6 mapping styles are all projected styles, the last style is UV mapping.
Toward the end of the video, I say I am looking at the right side of the cube, but I really am looking at the left side of the cube! Hope these flaws aren’t too confusing.
Below is the texture map I use in this video, so you can try this yourself.
