Preparing the model to use the UDIM UV tiles
In the previous recipe, we made the scales image texture seamless, ready to be seamlessly mapped on our model. If you go back to Chapter 5, Unwrapping the Low Resolution Mesh, you'll remember that we assigned two different sets of UV coordinate layers to it: the UVMap layer, divided into 5 different tiles (this is called UDIM UV Mapping; it's a popular standard in the industry and means U-Dimension), and the UVMap_scales layer, set up to repeat the
