    Does anyone know how to use the Stick Texture tag? The manual just says what it does but not how to apply it. And should I apply it before animating/deforming the model or after?

    You just add the tag to your object in the OM. I don’t think it matters whether you do it before or after you’ve animated.

    Sorry if I sound stupid, but do I select the geometry in the Obj. Mgr. and add the tag to that? I just want to be clear. Thanks. 🙂

    Oops. I wrote that last post on a friend’s computer. LOL!

    Yes, select the geometry and then you can add the tag from the R-click context menu or from OM>File>Cinema 4D>Stick Texture Tag.

    What’s the difference between the stick texture tag and setting ‘generate uvw’ on an object?

    The Stick Texture tag makes sure the texture “sticks” with the geometry in case you choose to deform it with bones or another deform tool.

    So does the process of generate UVW’s so I wonder what the difference between them is?

    Generating UV’s doesn’t guarantee that the texture will move with the mesh if the geometry is distorted with Bones or some other deforming tool. Page 713 of the manual goes into better detail of how the Stick Texture tag works.
