Default Normal Mapping n00b! HELP!

Can anyone recommend a good tutorial or knowledge base for people who are new to normal mapping? I understand the concept behind it, I've just never actually made one in Maya before.

that tut is free? it used to cost 2 points :rant: nobody told me!! Ah well, i just had to figure it out the hard way...


I'm sorry for this off topic thing, but

do you have to express your hate of the Christian religion openly? I mean, as to make it your screen name?

Sorry guys, but that just is, to me, as a Christian, offensive.

cYa LaTeR,

I didn't read anything in the code of conduct about prohibiting use of religious opinion in usernames, but if it will make you all sleep better at night, I will henceforth be known as "cutefuzzybunnies".

edit: Well, you lot will have to petition a moderator or something, because there's no way to change a login.

Oh, and I was wrong, that tutorial IS worth two points.

Ok, so I PMed Kevin to see if there's anything I can do. If not, I'll just re-register.

Hindsight, being 20/20, led me to the opinion that a 3D modeling site, and a professional one at that, is no place for religious opinion. While I will not apologize for my opinion, I will apologize for not respecting other members' beliefs.

alright- look I don't mind, and this aint a professional forum (at least me, I'm 13 :p). And I'm sorry I even mentioned the matter, the good, mature thing to do would be for me not to even think about the name and just respond accordingly to the question.
