Learn industry standard techniques of UV mapping in Unreal Engine.
UV mapping is a standard procedure of 3D production pipeline. In simple terms, it is used to apply 2D texture / image on 3D surface. UV texture map gives initial look and feel to CGI object. Later on, it is enhanced through shader, materials and lights to get required output. ‘U’ and ‘V’ represents the axes of 2D image / texture.
