Repeats per face conversion and prim matching

Question

  • 0

You can change the mapping setting from default to planar which will make it equal on all the different size prims and then adjust the offsets to line them up.

You don't  have to use planar mapping, which is a lovely mapping option but may change your design in other ways that you didn't intend).  Just use simple math:

(Repeats per meter)  =  (Repeats per face) / (Meters per face)

If one prim is 7m wide and has four repeats across it, then that's 4/7 = 0.571428 repeats per meter.   If you want the same number of repeats per meter on a prim that's 6m wide, then you set  repeats per face to 0.571428 x 6 = 3.4285.  On a prim that's 4m wide, that's 0.571428 x 4 = 2.2857 repeats per face.    :smileywink:
