I am working with multiple objects that have different UV names, I would like to know if there is a quick solution for renaming UVs of all the objects to UVMap

  • $\begingroup$ Also, I'd add to Chebhou's script, you can iterate them. I just named mine after the object they belonged to. import bpy for obj in bpy.context.selected_objects : for uvmap in obj.data.uv_layers : uvmap.name = obj.data.name $\endgroup$

select all objects and run the script :

import bpy

for obj in bpy.context.selected_objects:
        obj.data.uv_layers.data.uv_layer_stencil.name = 'UVmap'
