Mapping coordinates are information stored in an object’s vertices that describes how the maps or patterns used in the materials applied to the object are projected onto the surface. The most common method of applying specific mapping coordinates is using the UVW Map modifier, which has adjustable parameters for projecting the maps onto object’s surfaces.

Some of the topics covered in this chapter are as follows:

  • Mapping coordinate concepts – Learn how mapping coordinates can affect the positioning and sizing of maps used in materials on 3D surfaces.
  • UVW map modifier – Learn some of the options available for projecting maps onto 3D surfaces. ...
