I had plans to do this great, comprehensive, multi-threaded plug-in demo video... but I got held up on another project, so a couple of hours ago I threw on the headset and rambled for an hour instead. :D

Novice? You may dig it. Semi-pro? Probably a tip or two. Pro? Feel free to tell me where to get off. I promise I'll do a more coherent series in the future. I really want to do one just on texturing. In the meantime, here's one covering the basic basics, like installing.

The full hour video is in 10-15 minute parts, available here:

Just watched the first one. Very much appreciated Mike. I missed that extra settings box the first time around (with verbose export etc) so this is really invaluable.
