[Dare I do this...? XO]
I haven't given up - really I haven't, but after two hours of experimenting to try to find out how to unwrap without getting a lot of weirdness in my uv/image editor screen, I've dug myself in deep enough to realise I actually need help here.
I THINK I've looked everywhere I can, but seem to be just going round in circles now, apart from getting distracted by a lot of cool stuff I really shouldn't be trying yet.
I'm new to everything about this (a week or so?), and still going through the 'hammering stuff into my brain' stage.
I'm starting with the default cube; edit mode; not really sure whether I should be selecting vertices, edges, or faces; pressing CTRL E, with a UV ed. window already up; selecting all faces (face mode for that?); pressing U......
*shakes head to clear nightmare uv shapes away*
I think my UV ed. window extends into another dimension, and I'm getting someone ELSE'S unwrapped object!
I've closed Blender, re-opened, even done a complete restart - several times - and get a definite non-cube unwrap.
It is never the same shape, either.
P.S. I'm not doing anything special, just trying to work through a tutorial from the .org site
[No, I darent, but I did anyway. Sorry for the baby question, guys
