i was wondering if someone could either show me or explain to me how to make a 3d model of a bottle and how to map a UV texture to the label area?

im very new to lightwave and i only really understand the basics of surfaces and how to add uv textures. if there are any good videos on this out there id really appreciate the help

thanks

Hey there...

This link always helped me...

For an earlier version of LightWave, but it should still apply.

It starts off with a basic project then advances in technique.

Hope it helps,

Tyler
