I am fairly new to Blender and was following a tutorial for making Minecraft animations. The gist was, make a plane, scale and subdivide it, extrude faces by 1 to make hills, and finally add pictures of block faces to the faces. I got through this and was ready to finish, when the tutorial mentioned one more thing. It said to make a small bevel on the plane to make textures more seamless and overall look better.
So I selected the plane, went to [add modifier], added a Bevel... And saw nothing. I went to material shading mode, rendered mode, and still didn't see any bevel - though that didn't stop it from slowing down my computer - a lot.
I tried going to edit mode and selecting all the edges, adding the modifier, and going back into object mode, but still nothing. What's wrong? Am I using bevel wrong? Did bevel become unable to work when you have textures on faces sometime after the tutorial was made?
NOTE: I'm using Blender 2.79.
