Hi guys

I'm pulling my hair out to do UVmapped textures with Pov. I've got Gilles
Tran's tut, but I'm too stupid to get it working - I also don't have Poser.

Anybody know of a URL to a simple, newbie oriented tut that maybe refers to
using GPL tools only (maybe Blender and / or Wings, Poseray) to do UV
mapping with Pov? I've got UVMapper as well. 

So far I have succeeded in UVmapping a simple cube, but anything more
complex eludes me. Blender seems to have powerful facilties for this, and
I've figured out a simple workflow to use it to UVmap to Pov (via Poseray)
but I can't seem to get anything but a cube working...

The Blender UV tuts of course don't refer to Pov at all - and my improvised
workflow only seems to do cubes or simple cube like shapes (via Poseray).

Any pointers or URL's? All available stuff I've googled for seem to refer to
using commercial apps, or only one app (like the Blender tutorials) but
very little about using these programs' to get UVmapping in POV.
