I have a model of a human body and a human head, and both models use the same texture file. When I go to join them together into one form, however, the head's texture jumps to all bundled in the lower left corner,messing it up. how can I stop this from happening?

  • $\begingroup$ Can you post a picture of what you're dealing with in your question? Is your model UV unwrapped? $\endgroup$ – Timaroberts Dec 30 '15 at 21:25
  • $\begingroup$ imgur.com/PH7mi44 The model is uv unwrapped and both models are textured correctly before joining. $\endgroup$ – sycon Dec 30 '15 at 21:33
  • $\begingroup$ Ctrl + J should join meshes without change their UV Mapping $\endgroup$ – parameciostudio Dec 31 '15 at 8:46
  • $\begingroup$ @parameciostudio Tried this, it doesn't work. UV mapping is still reset. $\endgroup$ – sycon Dec 31 '15 at 14:48
  • $\begingroup$ @sycon Can you provide the blend file? $\endgroup$ – parameciostudio Dec 31 '15 at 14:53

Your are using two UV Maps with different names.

When you join the meshes, the UV Maps will be mantained:

If you want to merge the UV Maps, just assign them the same name before merging.
