unwinding->Bitmap->cover

Hello.
Am a newbie.
I just like the SLC well.
I think it would be great if you can cover a body with a bitmap.
For single areas, it works great.
But with many surfaces that yield a body I have not made it yet.
An example would be a sheet of DIN A4 paper. :
A bitmap on a straight sheet is easy.
But now would like a bitmap on a piece of paper which is kinked several times.
Is this to realize?
Do you need sketches or illustrations?
Thanks in advance.

Can you share an image of what you try to do.

I believe regenerating texture coordinates is what you need.

Hello.

I would like to bring a bitmap to a surface.
The bitmap should follow the surface.
Like a sheet of paper.
You see the dog-ears of leaf two have a broken one bitmap.

Hi GreyEnt
I don't think that Simlab can do what you are trying to achieve. The UV mapping tools are simple to use but limited in what they can do. As an experiment I made a curved solid and applied a UV map in 3D Coat. I applied a texture map in Photoshop and load it into Simlab. It has no distortion. Next I applied the picture I have use to create the texture map to a duplicate object using Simlab's material and UV tools. This version of the object has distortion to the texture map where the surface curves away. I think this is because Simlab projects the texture on the face of the object.

hi keith.
Thank you very much.
I understand.
Maybe the programmers get into fire and work overtime. :)
Haste makes waste.
