Combining and creating GLSL Matcap Materials

In this tutorial I run through how to combing matcap images to make new GLSL materials for displaying your models in realtime with blenders GLSL shading mode. I also cover how to save out the resulting material as a new madcap image that you can then use when sculpting or showing off your models later.

        Well that’s very weird… All our videos are encoded with H.264 MP4. What version of Windows are you on?

        Same here under Windows 7, 64 bit, home premium all updated. If I use VLC, also up to date, nothing happens. Using SMplayer it stutters at 4 seconds. Since the copy on YouTube works perfectly it should be a simple affair to pack it in the resources zip.
        Thanks. :)
