Can't select faces when UVW unwraping
show user profile  Statharas
Like the title says, when I try to UVW unwrap, i can't select faces. Or edges. Only vertexes, but those for some reason don't load up in the UVW editor.

the unwrap modifier works best if you're out of sub-object mode when it's applied
if you have, say, a couple of polys seleced when you apply it- and are in polygon mode then you'll only be able to edit the uv's of those selected polys
so i suppose if you were in a sub-object mode with nothing selected you'll get similar results to what you're experiencing

very easy mistake to make- feel stupid if you make it twice :)

short answer- you can't
long answer- you can join more uv islands together- less joins less seams, you can put the seams in places that aren't easily seen, or you can paint over the seams in the texture using zbrush, mudbox, sculptris etc or by using the multi- channel technique: (part 11)http://www.maxforums.org/threads/life_sea_turtle_tutorial_mrgrotey/0001.aspx

Also Max's own viewport canvas, which I've been using religiously for a while now. (hopefully might even be able to show some stuff soon!)

@ Dave, just curious why you use viewport canvas. It's nothing to do with uv's, just painting, right? Or am I missing something?

P.S. Genuinely asking as I don't use it at all, if I want to paint on the model I use zbrush.
