Gizmos 101 question - unable to scale UVW map
show user profile  Davious

following a recent return to the hobby of max, I've hit a bit of a wall. Great Goole is unable to assist - although I've had lots of threads on the issue, my problem remains.

Say you take a cylinder and add a uvm map modifier. I can rotate and move it but can't scale.

I have unchecked 'use real world scale' in the materials coordinates rollout and even tried generating the cylinder with ' real world map size' unchecked. I have generic units set in max. I can go down the route of an unwrap but that seems long winded for such a simple shape.

I'm unable to select 'fit' or 'bitmap fit' either

please help :) I am once more a noob.

Hi, Davious. Long time no see :)

I can't reproduce the problem.
I've: opened max, created a cylinder, added a UVW Map modifier and assigned a material with some random bitmap. When I move, rotate or scale the modifier's gizmo, I see the correct result in both the viewport and the render. Using max 2012.
I've no idea why it's not working for you. Sorry :\

OK easy fix after google-fu.

In the UVW modifier rollout you have to uncheck 'Real world map size' to be able to scale the UVW gizmo. Was doing my head in for ages!
