"Transferring" UVs Feb. 13, 2021, 4:21 a.m.

have you tried to look into the gamedev toolset?
there's an UV transfer node, I haven't used it but you might want to give it a look

cheers

I didn't bother to fully check out the toolset yet, which turned out to be a mistake. The UV Transfer SOP works great! It does indeed transfer the UVs almost perfectly. There are a couple of mistakes, but they should be easy to fix. At the very least, it saves me a lot of time having to do all the UVs from scratch, and this gives me a lot of control over the LODs.

Thank you for alerting me to something I had missed before.

Hi, Nick! Could you share please how do you fix the UVs after transfer?
I found that UV transfer node works perfectly if you use even division numbers in subdivide node what make sense, but not always an option.

You have this issue just due to fbx or also with obj?
After importing the mesh, did you tried to play around with baking color ID parameters - color sorce?
How your color map looks like after baking?

If you color map looks ok'ish after baking, did you tried to separate color IDs by: masking - color selection - pick color?

Thanks, Man! Color ID parameters - color sorce was the issue.

I just want to add that the string HOUDINI_EXTERNAL_HELP_BROWSER = 1 should be added to Document/Houdini/Houdini.env text file.
