Maya Implemenation of Blender's Unwrap tools

Quality of Life Enhancement Device for Computer Artists

Every now and again something new in the computer graphics world will make your jaw drop like Maya's Paint Effects. Blender's LSCM and ABF uv unwrapping tools are another example. If a good proportion of your life is spent in front of Maya, texture mapping polygon meshes, then you should probably install this plugin and mel script.

Maya has really solid and reliable texture mapping tools but it's automatic unwrapping can produce very inefficient results which have to be manually tidied up. Blender's automatic mapping tools are very fast even on complicated meshes. The results need very little tidying up if at all. Have a look at the following Blender documentation and example movies.
