Nice tutorial, I didn't know those things :D ... Dlokea, try to make a tutorial of a technique in this amount of time, and try to make it more useful than this one... I'd like to see how that turns out hahaha. Thanks Daarken, it's always nice to learn from you

Awesome! Even these small tutorials adds to my knowledge bank! I learned so much from your tutorial, Mr. Daarken. I need to give you my thanks :)

Diokea - I am sorry you feel this tutorial is useless. I was required to do a full tutorial of a technique that took less than 5 minutes. There isn't much you can do in 5 minutes, so I was trying to show a technique that I thought not everyone knew about. Do you have a suggestion of a tutorial that wouldn't be "useless" that I can do in under 5 minutes? I would love to hear about it. Thanks!
