UV Tailor
Installation and Setup Guide

UV Tailor is a plugin for DAZ Studio 64 bit Windows that allows you to view and print the uvs for any model. This allows you to create new textures for existing models, matching them to the uv set used by that model. Plus it allows you to create textures for new models that you have created uvs for. It allows you to see how your uvs and textures will be affected by the subdivision process so you can make sure they will map correctly at the highest subdivision level. The main features are: - View / Print all models from early Poser models, all DAZ models - Victoria 1-4 up through current Genesis (3 at this point). For any model you can load into DAZ Studio, you can view the uvs. - View - Print all uv sets, not only the one currently in use by the loaded model, but all the sets available on the newer Genesis models - View - Print all Subdivision levels. Subdivision slightly changes uvs as they are smoothed in the Subdivision process. UV Tailor lets you check your textures against the generated high res uv maps. - View / Print with and without background image map. With the image, you can view exactly how the uvs match up against the image map currently in use. Without them, you have a template over which to create your own texture. - Correctly works with the new Genesis 3 non overlapping uv layouts. - Scriptable from DAZ Script so you can automate the selection of surfaces, uv sets, subdivision levels and export of uv images.

*****  WHERE TO BUY  *****

If you have not already done so, you can read all about and purchase a copy of the UV Tailor plug-in for Daz Studio by clicking this link:


Please note that even though the product page and provided user guide state “64 bit Windows”, there are both 32-bit and 64-bit versions.

*****  INSTALLATION METHODS  *****

After purchasing UV Tailor, you can choose one of two available methods to install this plug-in for Daz Studio:

1. Use the Daz Install Manager (DIM) to automatically download and install the appropriate version (32-bit or 64-bit) for your system.


2. Log into your Daz Account and download the appropriate version (32-bit or 64-bit) from Product Library and install it manually.


Both methods should install the version you selected in the right place on your system which for the most part doesn’t matter until you read on.
*****  GET SERIAL NUMBER  *****

After you purchase the plug-in, you will need your serial number that is required for activation.  Log into Daz3D and go to My Account section.


Now click on the Serial Numbers icon and then scroll down the listing until you find the UV Tailor entry.  You can use copy-n-paste to temporarily put it somewhere like in Notepad or just write it down.


*****  ACTIVATING PLUG-IN  *****

Before you can use the UV Tailor plug-in, you will have to activate it from within Daz Studio.  Once you have your assigned serial number, activation is fairly simple.  On the main menu, select Help and then click on the About Installed Plugins line.


On the next popup screen, scroll down until you find the UV Tailor entry (if you do not see it, then it was not installed properly).


When you click on the line for UV Tailor, you will get a message at the bottom of the plug-in window saying it needs registered to be enabled.



To register/enable the plug-in, click in the serial number field and either type or paste in your issued serial number.





Now hit the Enter or Return key to register your serial number.  You should get a message that Daz Studio will need to be restarted to enable the plug-in.



Once you have restarted Daz Studio, you can double-check the plug-in section to see if UV Tailor now shows a green plug status for loaded.



*****  USING UV TAILOR  *****

You can access the new plug-in by selecting Window / Panes (Tabs) on main menu and then clicking on the UV Tailor entry.



*****  Finding User Guide  *****
