Texture-mapping polygonal surfaces

In Maya, applying textures to a polygonal surface is a little bit different process than it is with NURB Surfaces. With polygons, you can actually apply a texture per polygon, so every polygon in your model could actually have a different texture. This gives you a lot of flexibility in the way that you can texture an object. Let me show you some basics. Let's go ahead and just take a simple object and shade it. Now if I want to I could apply a material very simply to this, just by going over the Rendering tab, picking the material and applying it.

Then I can change it to whatever color I want and so on. Now with the polygonal surface what's really nice is that each individual face can have a separate texture. So, for example, if I selected a handful of these faces, I could just apply another material to it and give it its own separate color. So every part, every face of the model can have its own material and its own mapping as well.

So all I'm really doing is just selecting f...
