Thank you Everyone for asking/answering the seemingly missing texture question! I was completely lost till I started reading the comments. This is just me but, I thought the textures would unpack when you unzipped the Course files. Being fairly new to Blender, who knew you could pack things in a Blender file! Is there a lesson in the beginning of the course on how to pack and unpack this information in Blender files? If so, would someone kindly point me to the lesson? I have either been away too long from these lessons or completely over looked it. And, I want to say "Thank You", Kent for explaining simply how to use Cycles. I have heard so many bad comments on how difficult it was to use Cycles I have avoided even attempting to learn it. For those of us that are new to the whole Cycles portion of Blender, is there a reference or cheat sheet that lists and examples each of the nodes? If yes, could you point me where I could get a copy? Thanks again, Everyone!

    The ability for Blender to pack external files into the .blend is extremely powerful. I'm not sure other 3D applications offer this ability..but I understand that there's confusion. A lesson on this is a good idea - thanks for the suggestion!

    The official Blender documentation is the best place to learn what each Cycles node does: https://www.blender.org/manual/de/render/cycles/nodes/index.html
