problem with texturing/material of polygon object
as some of you know, I built a X-Wing Starfighter.
It's finished now (or I don't know what I should add) and now I want to texture it.
To be honest, I have absolutely no idea how to do that.
I don't know what material I have to assign to (or If I need to assign a material at all), neither do I know how I can "paint" on the model.
I also like to do the texturing in a different programm (like PaintShop or Photoshop) because I can handle them better than the strange paint tool that comes with Maya.
