I'm watching a video which appears to be quite old: http://www.cgmeetup.net/home/uv-unwrapping-and-texture-painting-in-blender-tutorial/

What I need to know is what the hotkeys he's using do, and what are they mapped to now. Hotkeys such as CtrlA, CtrlJ, CtrlV, AltF, and that's all I can think of right now.

When I tried using some of these hotkeys or pulling up a menu with one on the menu, they didn't seem to work. Perhaps they don't work with the current version of blender?

By the way: I am using Blender 2.72b. Internet connection where I am is slow ATM so I can't just download the latest.

CTRL + A in object mode with an object selected you can apply the location, rotation, scale. CTRL + J in object mode with at least two objects selected will join the objects to one object CTRL + V in edit with some vertices or edges or faces selected mode gives a vertices menu ALT + F in edit mode with 4 edges selected fills it with a face (beauty fill).

The hotkeys are the same for version 2.62 and 2.75 so i guess they are the some for 2.72b

    $\begingroup$ What you describe for Alt+F is what F does, Alt+F is Beauty Fill. Short explaination is : trying to fill selected with equal triangle faces $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I don't understand... in the video regarding ALT+F he fills in a bunch of edges with faces using ALT+F. Its not working for me. I assumed that it worked for more than four faces judging by the video but nothing is happening except a Checkbox with the text: "Beauty Fill" Appearing in the options under the panel pulled up by pressing "T" in edit mode... $\endgroup$
