I'm probly not a help at all since I haven't ever really used or textured nurbs.. so read if you want some posibly usless info..

as far as I remember you just make your texture and put it in the color channel. the checker box next to the color. the texture is spaced out along the U and V lines of the nurbs.. you will need a texture for each patch. you could try buy makeing some boxes in photoshop. numbering them and thin useing that for a test texture. to see how it aplys its self.

Just a thought.
I'm gessing that is why there are no tutoreals for textureing nurbs becouse its not like polys.. you don't have to UV map.

There is some about textureing from the Go.... how ever its pronounced whare the tutoral you might have falowed comes from . its called surface paramiterisation I think and it deals in textureing this head. er one much like it.

I don't like UV maping at all.. but there are ways to make it much eazyer.. painting or editing the texture files though is fun I think.

what part(s) of textureing do you not like ?


at any rait.. it looks damn cool how it is !!

Hey wow, good job. Too bad it's from a gnomon tutorial But I guess that's what learning is all about! Other than that I think it's a good model. It kind of looks like you altered it a bit too? At any rate, I am also a fan of the gnomon line. I believe they also have a tutorial for patch texturing that same model. Great work!

( as s00n as i get the $money.... tuition is killing me right now

Hey, great model

How do you handle the alt key + mouse button in linux??
I'm unable to use it properly in Redhat 9.

Do you have the link to the tut??. I haven't modeled anything complex with NURBS before but looks promising...

to get the alt button to work for maya under linux
got to.
preferences>windows
then at the bottom "to move a window" choose "super (for windows logo"
this frees up the alt key from any shortcuts. then u can use with maya like in windows.


tuts i found

good luck.
