UV Set Show

Date : Sometime 2008
Maya Version : Should work with all versions of Maya

This tool is similar to the ones that you can easily find in the places like high end 3d and so on. But I thought I would give a go with my way adding a slightly more functionalities.

Basically it mamages UV Sets of multiple objects at once.

Most of the functions are self explainatory so I won’t go into the details on how they work. Just experiment them to see what happens.

One thing that I want to point out is that all the functions works for the list that is loaded in this tool, regardless of what your current Maya selection is.

This tool comes especially handy when you have lots of objects that has a particular uvset (eg : lightmap) and you want to select them. You can also mass create a uvset to the objects loaded in the list.

I also like swap function. It does so by creating a temp uvset and copies around the uvset and then deletes the temp uvset to archive this.

You can also click on the uvset name for the individual object to change its current uv set.

Only thing at the moment is that it takes a while to generate UI for lots of objects so use with caution. I think I need to find better method of representing them. Or option to not create UI for the list. Any suggestions welcome.

How to run this scipt :

  • Copy the script to your usual script folder. This could be your default Maya script folder under My documents
  • Source the file if necessary by typing : source Cas_uvSetShow and then pressing crtl+enter in the script editor
  • Run script : select some objects and type Cas_uvSetShowUI and then pressing crtl+enter in the script editor
  • Combine both source and command into one short cut button on your shelf for easy access next time

    Can you make sure that you have downloaded the latest version from this site and using it? Can yo try to delete the old files and try to use the new ones again? I am not sure why you get that errors but you should never get that from the current version.

    I think you have downloaded a version from creativecrash which is a bit of old version.

    I am not sure why, but ever since that site has changed from highend3d.com they have problems with their database. When I update plugins there, it either does not show the update at all or dates goes wrong or contents are wrong but titles are fine etc. A nightmare. I have contacted them and I hope they fix it soon.
