So let me show you some of the simplest ones first. I'm going to start with NURBS based surfaces. So the best way to look at this is to start with the plane, and we'll just show you very simple tools just to how to control placement of a texture on a NURB surface. So, first thing I want to do is put a material on there.

In this case, I'm just going to use a lambert, and then let's go ahead and put an actual texture into the Color channel.
