Hi everyone, we've got a new free video over at the Guerrilla CG Project (www.guerrillacg.org (http://www.guerrillacg.org))...

Robby Frank has made this video on The Basics of UV mapping (http://www.guerrillacg.org/home/3d-texturing/basics-of-uv-mapping) for all the newbies!
http://www.guerrillacg.org/images/stories/misc/frontPageVideoBanners/UVBasicsFrontPage.jpg (http://www.guerrillacg.org/home/3d-texturing/basics-of-uv-mapping)


Here Robby Frank covers the basics of texture unwrapping, otherwise known as UV mapping, the process of wrapping a texture onto a 3d object. We show how a flat image can be warped onto objects to add texture. This method is used widely in 3d graphics, and is used for a variety of maps including, color, specular, bump, displacement, normal mapping and more.

Cheers guys, has been a while since the last update, hopefully we'll get some more up soon.
