lightmap layoutuv and snapuv

Submitted by: haskell3d haskell3d
Does BightShadeUV have the ability to auto layout the uvs and also snap uv to nearest pixels? I know that I can do this by hand, or even use griduv, but its still a slow process. This worklfow is necessary for lightmaps for game engines like unreal.

    Hello Unfortunatly no. Other than the layout function native to Maya, there are no other packing functions. You can make a selection of UV's snap to pixels though by clicking one of the buttons at the display bar (bottom). This is also a native function of Maya called "Snap to pixel grid" if I recall.
