UV Mapping for Games

In UV Mapping for Games we'll tackle, in great depth, one of the most common pain-points that all 3D artists have: UV Mapping. No matter which area of game development you are in, if you interact with 3D models you will need to know about UV mapping - even if only at a fundamental level.

“What is UV mapping, why do we use it? Do I have to UV map my models?“ Starting by answering “what” UV maps are, we will answer each one of these questions - as well as answering others that you didn’t know you had!

Optimization
UV maps are everywhere and allow us to store and provide our models with a wide array of important data. Through this series, we will learn how to unlock that potential and build efficient, optimized UV maps for any game asset we wish to create!

Texel Density
In order to provide our models with high-quality textures, we need to ensure their UV maps are as best as they can be. One tool that all professional artists and teams use is the concept of “texel density”, and how it can bring consistency to a project.

UV Workflow
In UV Mapping for Games, we will explore several topics hands-on to quickly get comfortable with applying the theory we’ve learned. While all models operate on the same underlying UV theory, we will discover that some models will require different approach
