UVs to polygons

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I am working on projection mapping a physical model of a cliff for a show  Contents will be created with C4D and AE.

As we are projecting onto roughly 200 degrees of geometry we can't use a perspective mapping and are working on the UVs.

However I would like the option to have a flat polygonal surface that has the same shape as the UVs and do some 3D extrusion magic on it.

Basically I want my cliff model to become a polygonal plane that looks exactly like the UVs. Is there a way to do that? Someone has spent quite a lot of time working on the UVs so it's not as simple as 'flattening' the cliff.

Thanks a lot,

Svenja

If that functionality does exist in Cinema I am not aware of it. Let's hope someone else is !

  • Yes I don't think there is either... Hoping for a cheeky workaround. Thanks for your reply!
