I can't use Pelt Mapping...
show user profile  Sphynxinator
Hi all. I was trying to apply pelt to my model. Here's the part of the model that I want to pelt.

But it doesn't pelt the part correctly. I want to give screeenshot first.

Can you see the small 2 polygons in that part of model? Pelt mapping simulator focuses those polygons and I can't pelt map whole part of model... Why does it happen? At first, I forgot to include that 2 polygons to the model and then I welded it. Maybe it happened because of it.

If you don't understand what I mean, I can give the 3DS MAX file.

Thanks.

might be you're in a subobject level before you appied the unwrap
might be beccause you need to cut in some seam lines for the edges of the pelt to grab hold of

Pelt is really just for untangling, but is now obsolete when Peel does the job quicker.
It looks like your model is already untangled so what you need to flatten it out nicely is Relax.
The Peel/Relax workflow works for just about any unwrap...

Hey does anyone know a good tutorial on peel wrapping? I tried it as soon as I got 2012 and it kept on crashing max, so I never tried it again. Now I've been searching the internet and can't seem to find any vid on it.

@K-tonne
Wow, you might be correct. I don't know if because of it but when I cancel the polygon sub-object mode from the Editable Poly and apply Unwrap Modifier again, it ran without problems. I can use pelt mapping now. :D Thank you so much. :3 ^_^

@Octopuzzy
I will try your suggestions also. Thanks for your interest. :)
