    Well, not as good as the Maya UV Window, but free is good!

    Does this have the same basic effect as using the UVW Unwrap in 3dSMax 5 now? That's what I've been using to texturemap most of my stuff so far.

    Yea...I don't get it. These are fine I guess if you're using MilkShape which has fairly clunky UVW mapper, but if you're using Max, there's nothing here that can't been done faster, even without the extra step of converting to OBJ.

    I'm familiar with Clive Pygott, the author of SuperMapper, and he uses Poser, Ray Dream Studio, and A:M, so I can see his purpose, but the guy that wrote "Mapping Magician" uses Max and he has this to say...

    However, these programs are generally limited in that if you make composite objects made up of smaller individually UV mapped pieces, the composite object's UV maps will all be super-imposed on top of each other.
    ...which is only true if you have no idea how to use the UVW Unwrap modifier.

    To each his own, I guess.
