Comprehensive UV unwrap tutorial?

Recommended Posts

Hey dudes and dudettes, 

Is there any, or are there any in-depth tutorials on UV unwrap in C4d? Let's say I want to create an apple or a leaf - how would I go about unwrapping it in C4d? I've heard stories that Cinema 4d is the worst tool on planet earth when it comes to UV unwrapping, not sure how this stands with reality. In a very unfortunate event it is indeed the honest truth, perhaps someone could suggest a decent pipeline?

Yea, Cinema 4D is not the best in that area yet. Maybe Blender? But if you looking for tutorials, just search Cinema 4D UV and I am sure youll find few of nice tutorials.

3D kiwis bodypaint tutorials are here somewhere at the cafe, they are very comprehensive and cover probably most if not all of the UV tools, a bit older now but as I understand it the tools haven't changed much.

Unfortunately not anymore. Due to outdated database I had to delete everything. But maybe Nigel have it still on Vimeo, @3DKiwi?

I was just about to mention the 3DKiwil tutorials, but I can't find anything in the tutorial section. 

@Jennifer One other video I watched before was posted by EJ Hasenfratz and it's quite good.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O72fjPg4YX8

No, the 3D Kiwi BP stuff finally got removed by him a few months ago I think. But despite everyone constantly whinging about how awful the tools are, it's actually mostly fine,  and whilst it is true that not much has changed there in nearly 10 years, and we may be lacking some of the more advanced tools of other apps, I have never managed to find anything I can't UV in Cinema, so they must be adequate to some level ! 

 

Anyway, I send everyone to this one now.

 

 

There's also a few plugins that make UVing a lot more instant, so check out Seamilar / Easy UV if you are looking for faster mapping (R17-20)

Thanks for mentioning those plugins. I didn't want to chime in and blatantly do some self-promoting.

When I first saw this discussion, my first thoughts went to the tutorials about the fuel tank. Couldn't find them with a search, although they have been brought up quite a few times in the past. I guess this might be due to a clean-up or change of the forums lately.

Glad you provided the link to these, here once more.

 

As for my plugins, I might do some quick introduction tutorial to show the usage in a worflow.

I haven't done this yet, as I assume(d) users of the plugins knowing what they're doing, and are only looking for tools to speed up the process.

 

This one really doesn't help in explaining the process, but it's a quick overview of the workflow I am used to:

If interested I will see what I can come up with to try and explain on a beginner level.

    Just to add, I have removed all of my Cinema 4D tutorials from the Internet.
