ok so im either dumb or this isnt something ur supposed to know right off the bat.
on the tutorials they have a picture in the background of the model that they are creating. how do i do that. here is an example:
can someone help me im interested in making a career out of this and goin to school for it but i would like to have a heads up before i start.
thanks in advance
in your 3d window do you see where it says view click view and choose background image, then add pic
i did that and on the tutorial it says there is a load button but i never see one
there you go the answer in pictures
I prefer this method, personally: http://blenderartists.org/forum/showpost.php?p=510947&postcount=4. That way it can all be done in one window, and you can also rotate around. View > BG Image only works in side, front, and top view.
When I load the background images and begin to model, they’re not alligned, and I can’t make an accurate model then.
I’ll try that UV map method. Sounds interesting
