I know the basics of UV mapping already but I came across this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FPnbK-K7Ids but I can't understand it because it is so quiet and I am deaf so it is even more difficult for me. He used a lot of shortcuts, which seems very useful for me. Can someone help me and tell me what shortcuts he used?

Thanks in advance :)

can you specify in time where those actions are done that is of interest for you, itīs a bit difficult for us to follow exactly when and what you are refering to.

How did he make the whole building as one surface, select one part of it, make UV and copy and paste to other selections of the building?

At 2:46, he says he uses Alt-C to copy and Alt-V to paste, but my V11.6.3 modeler doesn't have those shortcuts defined, so he probably used Edit=>Edit Keyboard Shortcuts to assign them to the Copy UVs and Paste UVs commands, respectively. He also says that you sometimes have to do the paste twice, since there's a bug that messes up the UV paste for the first paste. He selects the entire ring on the building using right-arrow.

Yay, thank you :D Yeah, shortcuts weren't assigned either. I found them and assigned to Alt+C and Alt+V. Now I wonder why I couldn't understand him ha! :) Thank you for telling me about the bug, I came across it too and wondered if I was doing something wrong.
