View Full Version : New Guerrilla CG Video : Basics of UV Mapping

05 May 2009, 04:37 PM
Hi everyone, we've got a new free video over at the Guerrilla CG Project ( (

Robby Frank has made this video on The Basics of UV mapping ( for all the newbies! (

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.
