Ok, I like BodyPaint and it has a cool remap tool. Only the remap only goes one direction, from the old UVs to the new UVs.
I need a plugin that will reverse the direction.
So basically let's say you have a model and you want to wrap a tribal tattoo around the arm. The UVs are already setup for use in another app so you can't modify the UVs permanently.
What you want to do is modify the UVs so you can paint a nice tattoo, and then take that and have it remapped to the old UV position. Bodypaint will let you take the texture under the original UVs and remap it to the modified UVs, but after you do painting, you're stuck with the UVs where they are and no way to put them back to the original and take the texture with it.
