I am trying my best to learn everything about the tools as i go along. At 5:41 you press E to make the loop cut even. Can you please explain what that does? On my model it doesn't make the loop cut even, it looks better without pressing E. Thankyou!

    The Even option on Loop Cut makes the edges on one side or the other (as specified via the F key) of the new loop be the same length. This is more obvious when you cut through a more oblong, or otherwise non-even, shape. For example, here is a screenshot of a loop slide without even: http://cl.ly/c9dW And then with Even enabled: http://cl.ly/c9eK Notice how the edge lengths are different in the first?
