UVW XForm rotate about center
« on: March 14, 2018, 10:46:12 AM »
Hi, it is posible somehow rotate UVW about center inside RC? I have texture atlas with wood ends. It works fine with max UVW XForm, but it is missing in RC ver. Thanks.

Hi, Thanks for the suggestion - I've added it to our wishlist.

In the meantime, you can get around this by following this procedure:

1 - In the Material Editor > Map parameters, offset the map by -0.5 on the U and V axes
2 - Select the end polys on the source object and apply a UVW XForm modifier. Set the U and V offset parameters to 0.5 scene units

That move the centre of texture and UVs to the origin and rotation should then work as desired. I've attached a file to illustrate.

I hope that helps, please let me know if you have any further questions.

Best wishes,

Paul
