Removing seams in objects

but what do yo think to the idea of exporting from C4D and importing into Blender to unwrap the UV?  Blender seems to have much more intuitive controls, such as selecting seams before unwrapping. 

Blender does have superior UV tools, and you should use whatever gets the job done in the best way for you at the end of the day. I was just trying to show you that you can UV map anything in Cinema if you are so minded to do so - but that is not to say other apps won't do it faster.

Oh, nobody has mentioned Seamilar or its little brother Easy UV yet, the plugins that makes seaming and UVing in Cinema incredibly easy...

They're worth checking out before you get a whole new program involved...

  • What's the general consensus on Rizom?  I have a boss with deep pockets.

  • Ok, I've just answered my own question with the evaluation version.  I'll be purchasing a license when I get to work.  Thanks so much for all your help lads.  I realise it may seem as though I've ignored your advice and gone off in a totally different direction, but without your comments I wouldn't have sought out alternative software and stumbled across Rizom.

     

    I owe you all a beer.

    If you want a round shape like this to have no seem at all you could so something of a mirror when making the UVs like I did on the following file.  If starting with a tiling texture to begin with a single cut could be done on the UV of the cylinder and then have the UV go from one end of the texture all the way to the other.  Since the texture tiles there would be no seem in the UV.

     

    There are two seems shown in the picture.  The mirroring hides it pretty well.

    Not used it but thought we had that UV peeler tool for simple stuff in cinema.
