SPEND TIME ON YOUR ART
NOT YOUR UVS
I really like what you all have done with RizomUV VS. It is very powerful. Well done!
RizomUV’s strength is that it is built for speed of workflow. It can unwrap in seconds, pack in seconds, optimise in seconds, thereby reducing the hours you spend UV mapping in other applications into minutes. This frees you up to spend time where it matters: Your art. RizomUV VS is a full-featured UV Mapping application, with features surpassing most offerings currently on the market. Whereas its sibling, RizomUV RS ((Real Spaces), is for CAD space RizomUV VS (Virtual Spaces) is our UV Mapping application for the CG industry, from indie stills to games you’ve played or movies you’ve seen.

Got a little enthusiastic with your SubD? Made it a little complicated? Need to unfold it? RizomUV doesn't really care about size. It can flatten + 100K poly models into perfectly flat, non-overlapping maps (almost) in the blink of an eye
Our native packer is designed to ensure your islands are packed with minimal waste of space and efficient orientation and scale. And of course, it can pack groups, fill gaps and put shells anywhere else you can think of.
Don't like cutting seams? Neither do we! That's why we have several specific algorithms and settings to create the seams for you, so you can cut up anything from a terrain to a mech in seconds, based on the parameters you define. You can even choose only to display proposed cuts, make the cuts, or cut, wrap and pack in one go.
UDIMS and Multichannels
If you need to spread your wings or anything else over multiple tiles or channels, we have you covered – RizomUV offers super easy UDIM and MultiChannel functionality. Define your tiles, and/or define your channels, any which way you like, and save. Boom! Done!
Must have tool in any game artist’ toolbox. Saved me tons of time during a game production. Rich hotkey customizability makes it more like an extension for your main 3D content creation tool, rather than yet another software to get used to.
In addition to just hitting the Unwrap button, we also give you brush options for fine-tuning your UV maps, complete with radius, pressure and a choice of algorithm options. These come in particularly handy when working with photogrammetry models or heads – and again, save you time by letting you paint, rather than spending ages on finding that perfect cut that will solve all
If you're looking for stretch or pinch management, there are Optimisers, and then there's our Optimiser. Ours is so good; it's used in the CAD industry to design objects that need micrometre precision.
We support Obj and FBX formats, as well as poly/object, material and smoothing groups. Easy to import and export. We offer also offer Lua-scripting – you can see prime examples of these by checking out our community-created Bridges.

RizomUV is indeed an impressive piece of software! Not only in the fundamental tools provided miles ahead of any alternatives, but the support provided is also absolutely outstanding. In my opinion, the real strength that RizomUV has to offer is the robust scripting API, which allows me to build a highly efficient workflow around the software.
