In addition to unwrapping objects by defining scenes, we can also create projection mapping, which basically projects a sphere or a cylinder or a cube onto our object to get some rough mapping that we can later tweak. So let's take a look at how to do that. I've got a basic cylinder here, which is basically just a soup can, so let's go ahead and just select that and apply a texture to it. So I am going to go into my Texture panel here, create a new texture, scroll down to Type, select Image or Movie, open the image, and in this case we are going to open up SoupLabel, and you could see that's a very simple label of soup.

And then for Coordinates, again we want to make sure that we're on UV Coordinates. So let's do a quick test render. And that is not anywhere near what we want, so let's go ahead and start mapping this. So I need to go into a UV editing mode, so let's just go ahead and use the default UV editing layout here. So I've got my can, and let's...
