Help!! UVW unwrap resets....
show user profile  Sparxius
Hello everyone,

I got a problem.
Right now I'm working on a headphone for work.
Now I'm at the texture fase and i pelted the tings that i need to texture. I've already made the texture but the UVW of the object resets everytime.
I saved my UVW before the resets. But if load it back in it still resets.

Everytime i reload my UVW it updates in perspective view, but when i render it resets and everything is lost.

Can someone tell me whats going on and how i can fix it.

Regards Sparxius

Are you loading in the uvs then deleting the uvw modifier by any chance? both the uvwunwrap and uvwmap modifiers should be collapsed into the stack to save the uvs with the mesh.

Other than than check that you are uvmapping on the same mapping channel number that your textures are set at. The default for both should be '1' but if either is different you will get unexpected results
