>Browse a bunch of PBR models>Take a peek at the unwrap>See thisSo is this how people UV unwrap nowadays? Just use 4K textures for everything so its fine?
>>676499It's how they've always unwrapped. It's just that people are morons who can't actually do it.
>>676499the padding is crazy
>>676520Yeah especially since you need to have pretty big texture with such an unwrap anyway.
this gave me cancerthanks a lot
What program does the best unwrap for hard surface?
>>676573I'd say Blender, it has Smart Unwrap.
Do people still use Headus UVLayout?
>>676499Everything except characters is being textured using triplanar, UVs are basically obsolete unless you need a specific orientation like in wood or blinders and such.Like, who paints textures manually for 100 assets lmao, just push the button nigga or you're getting replaced by a smarter nigga.
>>676499Looks like the auto unwrap in 3D Coat. If it's a piece I'm just going to paint a texture directly on and don't expect anyone else will ever retexture I do that too sometimes.
>>676499Lots of small chunks. Would have been better if this was split between two shaders
>>676573Unfold3D in Maya2018 or RizomUV they are more or less the same
>>676499production speed is more important than optimization in every sphere where money are made
>>676499this is why texture sets and material ids exist for multi subobjects. doing it all in one uv unwrap is dumb.
>>676673except this isnt really that fast, you would need still give these objects color ids and then bake it for substance but color ids come out terrible if theres too much shit compacted into one area. youre better off using the texture sets since color ids require you to use a MASK while textures sets are confined within their own uv channel and then use masking to paint instead of selections.

>>676710Not really, I was working with very tightly packed auto uvs and substance and it worked just fine. Maybe for le indie devs who use 64x64 textures but for the rest of the productive world that is a literal non issue
>>676719no but youre still missing the point, if you dont use color ids/mat ids youre wasting time and quality. if you just pack everything together you are forced to use masking techniques with color ids and if u baked a color id map its more than likey going to have shitty resolution and will have a jagged looked on the uvs because the clusters of uvs you set up are so tiny that they wont fit. you need to have color ids just as mat ids so that you have have texture sets instead.
>>676724>>676719so unless you hand paint this shit and know how to unwrap it properly thats the only time it wont cause problems with your uvs on tightly packed meshes, otherwise you have to use ids.
>>676724I used IDs you retard, basically I had to do a ton of background assets and went by doing them at 2k then batch downressing to 1k or 512.Do you guys seriously think you'll manage to perfectly UV AND texture 200+ meshes in like a week?
>>676728then what are you refuting you dumb retard, stop talking lmao
>>676732>hurr durr u cant use auto uv with id>I did just that nigga and it worked just fine>hurrr lmao
>>676734you dumb retard its like you dont know how ids work. like i said stop using baked color ids which is probably what youre doing. just having an id for your mats will get you a texture set WHICH will give those ids there own channel for UVS so you can just auto uv those instead of them being small island clusters for no reason, what part of that did you not understand?
This board is atrocious, I swear.
>>676716Thanks, I forgot about this
>>676586I do, freaking love that program.
>>676499Oh jesus, thats bad>>676673Bullshit, Optimization is most important in production most timeTight poly and texture budgets, now draw call budgets so you gotta make sure you gotta think on how you break up the mesh
>>676708Having everything on the same material ID and UV map channel saves on draw calls, and thus improves performance. [spoiler]However that kind of UV map doesn't look very performant unless they're also baking in the lighting/AO.[/spoiler]
