Post tutorial Report RSS HD Video Tutorial - Smoothing Groups

Learn how to use smoothing groups to eliminate hard shading where you don't want it.

People should really appreciate these tutorials because if you try to learn these from scratch by yourself it takes a lot of time. But now, in five minutes you're good to go. Also these are hand picked important points of mapping. Not like a wiki where you are not sure what's important and what's not.

Thanks again.

Glad you guys like it! :)

I do need to go through a lot of trial and error to figure out exactly how everything works before I make a tutorial on it, so it's awesome to see you guys appreciate my effort! ^^
