Unwrapping a mesh under Blender 2.5

The Blender 2.5 has a number of options available to map the UVW coordinates of an object.

The “UVW map” is a result of process.

This result is essentially a set of co-ordinates use to tell them how a texture image is supposed to be applied over the surfaces of a model.

Go on UV Editing, select the object ( the cube in this case) and enter on Edit Mode.

All keys will be pressed with the mouse cursor in the area 3D View, where the object is edited.

Now if you press key U and select first option you will see this …

UVW map simple

… if you select Smart UV Project, you will see the second image.

The best approach is to use a systems of cuts, referred to as Seams, are specially marked edge elements.

See in next image , how unwrapping process knows to split and make the UVW map.

In this case. select some edges and press Ctr+E select option Mark Seam.

I select edges from a face , and result is this:

Windows XP Tweaking – part 1

Windows 7 appeared, but Windows XP is still used by many users.
In this tutorial i will show some tweaks.

Optimize Boot Files

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Dfrg\BootOptimizeFunction]

You need to reboot after applying this tweak. This key setting enables the boot files defragmenter.

This move the boot files to the beginning part of the partition and make fastest booting process.

Setting EnablePrefetcher

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\PrefetchParameters]

On this key the default setting is 3 , set on 5.This gives more system resources to prefetch application data for faster load times.

Master File Table Zone Reservation

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\FileSystem]

This key named NtfsMftZoneReservation with default setting is 1. The range is from 1 to 4

If you have 1 then system use one-eighth of the volume for the MFT, 2 reserves one-quarter, 3 reserves three-eighths of MFT and 4 4 reserves half of the volume. I use 2 option.

Force XP to unload DLL’s

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer]
"AlwaysUnloadDLL"=dword:00000001

If don’t have this key then is need to create it.

XP keeping dynamic link libraries, this key force XP to unload any DLLs in memory when the application is no longer in memory.

Disable “user tracking”

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
"NoInstrumentation"=dword:00000001

Many users don’t use information collected by XP. Set it to 1 and will disable user tracking features of the system.
