Unwrapping in cinema ?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I want to start and learn unreal 4, and for that I need to first learn how to unwrap my models (it is necessary for the workflow of unreal to have proper unwrapped models).

I understood from a colleague of mine that unwrapping in cinema4d is a real pain - Is there a software out there that can do it easily and doesn't cost hundreds of dollars ?

And if not - can you please point me to a decent tutorial about this subject ? YouTube is full of those tutorials but picking the right one is not so easy....

Peace,

Kobi

Cinema's UV toolset is a little ancient now, but I wouldn't call it unusable. 

Here's a decent tutorial for it.

There is also RizomUV. Never used it myself but I hear only good things about it. Indie perpetual license is at 150€.

Hard to swallow pill.
C4D UV workflow is counter productive. 
Use Blender for the UV mapping. Should cover most of your needs.
If you need more features such as tight and clean packing of UV's (very important in games), use RizomUV as @DasFrodo.

    Also take a look at 3D-Coat for UV tasks.

    I second using RizomUV. It actually makes the process fun.

    Think I need to take a look at it then. UVs is the one thing I really, really hate in 3D.

    And for those wanting to stay within Cinema4D there are the EasyUV or Seamilar plugins.
