The Pack UVs dialog
contains controls for clusters.
Sets the packing method:
- Linear PackingUses
a linear method to lay out the faces. This method is fast but not very
efficient, and tends to leave a lot of unused UV space.
- Recursive PackingSlower
than the Linear method, but packs the faces more efficiently.
Controls the amount of space
The higher this setting,
the larger the gap that appears between clusters.
- Normalize Clusters
Controls whether the final
layout will be scaled down to 1.0 unit to fit within the standard
editor mapping area. If this is turned off, the final size of the
clusters will be in object space, and they'll probably be much larger
than the editor mapping area. For best results, leave this turned on.
- Rotate Clusters
Controls whether clusters
are rotated to minimize the size of their bounding box. For instance,
the bounding box of a rectangle rotated 45 degrees occupies more area
than one rotated 90 degrees.
- Fill Holes
When turned on, smaller clusters
will be placed in empty spaces within larger clusters to take the
most advantage of the available mapping space.
Accepts the settings, closes
the dialog, and performs the packing as specified.

Makes the current settings
the defaults for the current session.
