I would like to do something similar to this; I would like picture and video mapped to the shape.
What would be the easiest way to do this? I am familiar with UVW mapping. I was thinking it might be best to make the number '40' a polygon without rounded edges, just hard edges. Then unwrap the UV. Map my bitmap to the unwrapped UV. This is where I get stuck. I want to then round the edges slightly without messing things up in my UV.
