Help for 3d newbies
Okay boys and girls, I'm posting up another tutorial for the 3d world. But this is more of a tech support session than program help. I'm a CompTIA A+ certified computer tech, and I'm going to share some knowledge to help you either upgrade your system to better utilize 3d, and give you advice if you're going to build or buy a new system.

Select everything in the scene, including some things like hair or accessories that get parented into different things. These can be a pain to track down and follow. For those of you with great PC systems, this is the easiest way to do this:
Select everything...and in every last bone, model and so forth (excluding lights, which if you already put one in I should slap you) and go to the surfaces, select everything here too.

Now that you have every flingin' thing selected, go to your shader presets in your content panel. Open the D
