Projecting maps on curved objects

Now, let's talk a little bit about projected textures and these can also help to apply textures to curved faces. And what I want to do is to texture this face here. So in order to do that with projected textures, what we have to do is create a projector, it's almost like a screen and what it's going to be is a rectangle that's the exact same width as this curved object. So I am just going to use the Line tool and just use inference here to go ahead and make sure that I am exactly off of these points here, make sure that this is vertical here, and just draw a rectangle here. Now, this rectangle should be pretty close to exactly the size of this opening.

So now, I am going to import the texture that I want to apply. So I am just going to go Import, and it's a TARGA file, and it's in your Chapter 04 directory and it's called SoupLabel, and we have used this before. And right here, I want to make sure that I don't use it as an image, but I use it as a textur...
