Python examples

import maya.cmds as cmds

# Opening up the textureView will make this example much easier to visualize.

# Create a cube
mel.eval( "createSubdCube" )

# Cut the map.
cmds.subdMapCut( 'subdivCube1.sme[2560][2]', 'subdivCube1.sme[2816][2]' )
# now that it's cut, we may move the row separately

# Move some UVs
cmds.subdEditUV( 'subdivCube1.smm[21:22]', 'subdivCube1.smm[25]', u=0, v=0.05 )
