Can anyone advise me, why are my uv's always out of ratio, sometimes very much so?
Unfold them better ?
Dont scale in object mode! NEVER.
Now you have to enter object mode and use CTRL+A and select Rotation & Scale. Then you have to unwrap model once again. (just click E in uv editor in edit mode.
Or just tick the "preserve UVs" option for any of the transformation tools.
It doesn't look like they're using Maya.
OP here, that solved my problem, thank you very much
Glad to know youve solved the problem, but isnt there supposed to be a texture image on the chair?
