Hi
I'm sort of new to the 3D thingy and I have some problems sometimes to understand the lingo.

Is there somewhere a good 3D dictionary that explains all the insider/technical words?

I for instance can't wrap my head around 'normals' and 'UV space' to mention two. Just not 100% sure what they really mean.

Thanks a million
Carsten

Lets know when you find it!. You need a book written by an independant as every company uses different words for the same thing. And they, who shall not be named, have different names for the same thing within the same app!!!

It's a good start Senyac but really highlights the missing descriptions of a lot of apps----starting-----
