I’ve completed my model of a gun and I have watched 3 video tuts on how to texture from an image. The videos are all using older versions of blender (2.45 and lower). I am using version 2.61 and obviously things are different, because I can not get the gun to project onto the uv editor window.
The instructions I have gotten from the video were:
-go into edit mode
-select all in face mode
-click on arrow in uv window and select uv/image editor
-select all faces on your model and then hit hotkey u, project from view…
Now at this point When I click on project from view I don’t see anything other than an empty grid. I have also tried to hit unwrap, then project from view and nothing happens.
In all 3 tuts I watched when they hit project from view, a mesh model of their gun appears in yellow with purple select on the faces.
What am I not doing?
Everything is pretty much default from startup, I only change view to front ortho because that gives me a nice 90 degree side profile of my gun.
