Editing Seams?
show user profile  Agentmass
I have been looking at some tutorials on UVW mapping and I cant figure out the difference between map seams, and peel seams and what they actually do. I also cant figure out how to edit the seams on the geometry. I hope someone can explain this to me.

what do you mean when you say edit seams? It looks like the unwrap is ok... you're always gonna have seams

Well, I wanted to do something like this so that I could have one solid side. I used flatten mapping but these seams are wrong. The solid black line means what I want to be a seam and the crossed out black line means that I want those seams gone. This way, I get a nice even seam, if that makes sense.

Now I understand better. But I have one more question that comes to mind. What is the difference between the green seams and the blue seams?

Green seems are texture seems and blue seems are pelt mapping seems.

So the blue seams are just used for pelt mapping?

Correct, but give yourself some time and watch part 7 of this to understand unwrapping better
