texture controlled eyes
show user profile  aniworld
Hi im creating a cartoon character, i will be using the uv gizmo to control his eye (look at) but any ideas how i will create a blink?

I'm thinking of switching the uv on command some how but im not sure how i might be able to do this?

maybe two lots of uv coordinates for each eye, then use a mix map for the eyelid textures with one lid mapped to the uv cooridnates?



He who says it cannot be done is interrupting the man doing it.

Basically yeah layer an eyelid map on top ( using composite / mix / whatever max uses ) for example in the diffuse slot, but uvmap it on a different channel from the eye itself ( for example add another uvmap modifier then select channel 2 and in ur map make sure it`s set to channel 2 ).. That way you`re able to control the uvw coords of different maps/textures within the same material..
