Some details:

Baked texture list

  • Selecting an items switches bake mode and UV image background
  • Great for quickly switching to previous bake modes to make adjustments
  • Once saved, assets can be openend in their default Apps

Fill tool

  • Rotates the UV soleection to its minimal bounds
  • Scales UV selection bounds to match UV 0-1 canvas area
  • Great for maximising UV fill for quads or FX meshes like particles

New Gravity Checker Map

  • More simplified
  • higher contrast

Straighten tools

Unfolds and Pins selected edge loops into straight lines and relaxes the rest of the UV island. Similar to Headus UV layout with its edge constraints. It does not re-scale the edge distance but instead maintains it.
