I've been wondering this actually. There aren't many scenarios where I need it, but it is a hassle.

I mean, I'd love to just model freely without worrying too much about what comes later. The above example is a simplified version of the issue I tend to run into, but theoretically the same. It just blows to have to model something twice. You do it once so you know it works, you know what it looks like, and then you've got to go 50 steps back to do it again but this time with UV's.

The whole "Do it once with UV's at the beginning" doesn't always apply, especially when there's a lot of experimentation in the modelling process.

This isn't just a Max issue though, I think the problem is sort of inherent in the general 3d pipeline. Experience teaches us to "think ahead" but there will always be instances where "thinking" isn't enough, and you actually need to build it first. It'd be nice to have a total separation between modelling and texturing/UV'ing.

You can RTT the uv's from one model onto another. E.g. High Res onto Low res.

I forget the settings/steps, I'm sure you can google it. Will post if I find a blog on it.

will be easier and quicker (because of the lower polycount) if you uv mapped before the turbosmooth

I think Zorb can paste multiple modifiers...not sure....don't have time to try it.

EDIT: Yes it can , go to the Base Object tab, rick click the box with the Unwrap, copy paste modifier etc etc....seems a bit funky tho..strange way to do it on first look, seems to paste a modifier on every object in the scene.

EDIT2: Because you need to set it to work an "selected" not "all" doh....anyways have a play seems to work fine.
