Default UV tutorials?

Autodesk and many other sites have texturing tutorials but they skip the process of actually uv mapping and need to find one

any suggestions on tutorials: preferably videos

Uv mapping 101 , Uv mapping for games, and others you might find useful are
Introduction to maya, Texture Painting weathered surfaces, and Texture Painting Fundamentals. For organic shapes learn to use Smooth UV Tool (your best friend).

other than tutorials you might want to use a program called Roadkill. It's what i use anyway and makes life easier.

I still recommend you learn the basic of UV mapping as well though

So I'm also fooling around with UV mapping right now. Ive been using RoadKill up to this point, but I came across this program used in Maya called Diamant UV beta 1.2 From what I hear and see it looks like the best out there. however there are ups and downs to it. first off it cost nothing right now, but you have to be hooked up to the internet all times that you want to use it. This is so they know who using it because the main goal is to sell it when it is perfected. but for right now its free. its worth your time to check it out
