UV editing with cinema4D

Let’s edit the uv map. Well, I understand nobody like uv editing. Don’t worry, I’ll show you an easy method this cinema4d. Basics of routine is ‘Select’ , ‘Project’ and ‘Hide’. If all polygons are hidden, realign all. Ok, move forward. Create new material named ‘lndiBody’ and add to low-poly indicator mesh. Select the Low poly indicator and change layout to ‘BP – UV Edit’. Change mode to UV Polygons.
