Very cool thread! I'm watching tutorials right now!
Ha! I just learned how to make a face morph! Brilliant!
One question I have is how do they make the model show the texture like this:
There are testing textures around that can be used, and that's how modellers, in this case Chris, gets to check if there's any stretching and such.
Here's one I just found --> UV Checker Texture
Also, I found a link on one of the Blender forums where someone states there's a built-in one within Blender, and I just checked it out. There's a color version and a non-color version (smaller blocks), and they are displayed on the "floor" of the UV Editor, so you can place your unwrapped pieces correctly. I think you can also actually use either of them as textures for your model, but it has to be unwrapped first, or it'll really look weird.
Check it out here --> In the UVImage Editor >> Image >> New then choose Color Grid or UV Grid. The Blank one is just plain black so not helpful as far as I can see.
You're quite welcome. I never knew it was there. I usually just add a UV Checker texture, so it's good to know there's another option.
Here's a companion article to the Cycles Shader Encyclopedia. This one is call the Cycles Input Encyclopedia.
Thanks for the link Earl. I hadn't come across that article before. Definitely going to bookmark it.
OK folks, haven't updated the links in my main Help, Forums and Tutorials list in a while, but I just posted a new addition to the Add-ons Section. Thanks to Heddheld on the Renderosity Blender forum, it's a link to the Blender Wiki's Blender Add-ons Catalog. Looks like a great resource for Blender add-ons.
One I really wanted is a dead link...sigh.
It was the Stairs Builderuilder one.
Uh oh, that's not good. Not sure who takes care of the Wiki, so don't know whom to report it to. It may very well be an old add-on that's no longer working in newer versions of Blender, or was replaced by another, more up-to-date add-on.

Nice Earl. I'm going to add this to the list.
