Just a quick question regarding UV uwrapping and Smoothing Groups: we were taught to add Smoothing Groups FIRST before UV unwrapping. Is it perfectly fine to do it backwards instead? Are there any negative downsides to doing that?
This is just a personal preference for me, doing it backwards, but I find it easier as I can add my cuts and make my UV islands, and then I can more easily select them in Max, and from there - add a Smoothing Group. :)
