    Maya UV Help

    Ok so on my models in Maya i do my UV maping and all and get the materials where i want them, then in the UV editor screen i click Image and Create PSD network, cause i am exporting my textures into Photoshop then to UDK. But once i get them into udk, you can see the UV lines all over the mesh i created, any tips on how to fix this? or is it something im doing wrong or what?

      UDK will flatten the PSD as it imports.. so if your layer for UV's is visible in photoshop you will get exactly what you're talking about.

        Is there a way for me to hide the UV in Maya so when i export the PSD the UV wont show up in photo shop but technically will still be there?

              In Photoshop add a new layer (name it if you want).

              Place the layer under the uv lines layer.

              You can now use the lines as a guide for the texture.

              Once your ready to save it for use just click the eye icon by the uv layer to turn it off.

              Save the file and the lines will not be there.

                    agree with dave42UK and jamiet

                    in Photoshop, when you create the second layer, you can also set the UVMap layer to 'screen' so that you can see it through your texture layer.

                    Check out this tutorial here from the training pro's 3dMotive:

                    yes, it's for 3ds Max but it's very short and what dave42UK describes, the Photoshop part, is done very clearly.

                      If your going to use phtotoshop your building your textures in there mostlikey anyway so just turn the uv wire layer off before you export it

                        Your right, of course.

                        Though if he would like to modify or add more to the materials/textures, Photoshop is certainly one option.
