Default Planar projection via the camera direction

How amazing is this!! Only just found it, and am really impressed, sorry just had to get that off my chest. I'm pretty much using it for everything at least to start off my uv layouts!

gster, what am i missing here, i dont get it, i mean i feel like i have only read half the thread?? can you tell me what this is?? is this cuve on suface projecting from an ortho view?? sprites?? what is this?? looks important, especially if it is something you learnt early in the piece.

(still waiting for PC to get fixed so just sort of strolling through the threads.)

Planar mapping maps the uv geometry from either the x,y or z axis though in the camera setting you can map from a non orthoganol view ie, in your persp window dolly around until your looking at the piece you want to map, however it looks in your persp window is how the uvs will look when mapped. Hope that makes sense.
