Texturing poly extrude surface!! Help!
on Feb 1, 2009 at 7:23:29 am

Hi, I am new to maya and I'm trying to create a mechanic tentacle like used on Dr.Octopus but I am going crazy cuz the texture gets all distorted. I created a poly cylinder and extrude along a path. the texture on the original poly cylinder is fine but the extruded part is jacked up! Here is a pic.


I tried using planar, cylindrical, and auto mapping... failure. I've also tried just using a ramp but i get the same result. Can anyone help?

Hi

You need to do UVs on the tube

IF you are new to UVs try this tutorial
http://www.highend3d.com/maya/tutorials/texturing/uv-101-248.html

is a very very nice tutorial for the UV beginner, you then will understand, why is that happening
