I don't have the bandwidth to download the video right now, so I can't comment on specifics, but I do want to say that this sort of topic is an excellent one to tackle and explain! There's a lot of power in these sorts of tools that can make one's life much easier - though people may not take advantage of it if they haven't had that a-ha moment when they see what can be done.

Hello Dillon

The video tutorial are very nice. I give them to anyone who is interested in learning blender and your site. So the beginners are not so frustrated in the beginning. Thanks!

Have a great day..Robert.

This is an excellent tutorial that opened up many alignment possibilities I had been struggling with earlier.

Now using the pivot settings and scale + 0 I'm managing to organise my objects and vertices where I want them where before I had been frustrated.

This is an excellent resource.

Regards
Caleb

Love that tut very usefull, pictures say so much more than the written word. But so do spoken words, I wish you had mentioned what the key strokes are for some of the cool efects, even when they aren't related to the topic.

Like the multi cut that went into the little tower models at the end of this tut. I wonder what kind of kestroke that was? It looked like a cool way to add multiple cuts and drag them across an edge.

Thanks! The keystroke is Ctrl-R, then use the mousewheel to adjust the number of loops.
