psdTextureFile([channelRGB=[string, uint, uint, uint, uint]], [channels=[string, uint, boolean]], [imageFileName=[string, string, uint]], [psdFileName=string], [snapShotImageName=string], [uvSnapPostionTop=boolean], [xResolution=uint], [yResolution=uint])

Note: Strings representing object names and arguments must be separated by commas. This is not depicted in the synopsis.

psdTextureFile is undoable, NOT queryable, and NOT editable.

Creates a Photoshop file with UVSnap shot image and the layer set names as the input.

Return value



channelRGB, channels, imageFileName, psdFileName, snapShotImageName, uvSnapPostionTop, xResolution, yResolution
Long name (short name) Argument types Properties
xResolution(xr) uint create
X - resolution of the image.
yResolution(yr) uint create
Y - resolution of the image.
channels(chs) [string, uint, boolean] createmultiuse
(M) Layer set names and index are given as input. This is a multi use flag. A layer set with the given name will be created. The second argument is the index which specifies the placement order of layer sets in the created file. The third argument is a boolean, if "true" a layer is created inside the layer set , "false" creates an empty layer set
channelRGB(chc) [string, uint, uint, uint, uint] createmultiuse
(M) Layer set names, index, red, green and blue values are given as input. Using this flag, the layers created can be filled with specified colors. This is a multi use flag. The index specifies the placement order of layer sets in the created file.
imageFileName(ifn) [string, string, uint] createmultiuse
Image file name, Layerset name and index. The image in the file will be transferred to layer set specified. The index specifies the placement order of layer sets in the created psd file. The image file specified can be in any of the formats supported by maya (ex. iff, jpg, gif, tif etc.)
psdFileName(psf) string create
PSD file name.
snapShotImageName(ssi) string create
Image file name on the disk containing UV snapshot / reference image.
uvSnapPostionTop(uvt) boolean create
Specifies the position of UV snapshot image layer in the PSD file. "True" positions this layer at the top and "False" positions the layer at the bottom next to the background layer in the PSD file

Flag can appear in Query mode of command Flag can have multiple arguments, passed either as a tuple or a list.

Python examples

import maya.cmds as cmds

# Create a poly plane
cmds.polyPlane(w=10, h=10, sx=10, sy=10, n='pPlane1')

# Create a snapshot file containing the UVs of pPlane1
cmds.uvSnapshot(n='C:\\uvSnapshot.iff', xr=512, yr=512, o=True)
# // Saved file: C:\uvSnapshot.iff #

# Create a Photoshop file containing a UV snapshot layer from UV snapshot file we have just created and an image layer from a disk image file
cmds.psdTextureFile(xr=512, yr=512, ifn=('C:\\tex.jpg', 'layerSet1', 1), ssi='C:\\uvSnapshot.iff', uvt=1, psf='C:\\final.psd')
# // Saved file: C:\final.psd #
