Hi everybody, my first post here!

I was wondering if its possible to add video or animated textures inside the scene? or onto an object?

If this is possible or there are any workarounds, please tell me.

Thanks,

Joe

you can put videos onto backdrops and onto certain objects like the tv monitors etc.
im pretty sure with the backdrop option you could cheat it. If you need to put your video onto an object which doesnt support this, just size your backdrop and align it with whatever you want so it looks like its attached or whatever

Yeah you can add videos to:

Backdrops
Certain objects that support textures like TVs and Picture frames
The Sky
The ground
Characters' chests and backs
...and shortly you'll be able to add you own videos and textures to the abstract blocks

Aha! Now that will be good! Add to that more flexibility to resizing, intersecting and a better way of moving the buggers around and a greater volume of user created objects may appear!

Thank you so much for your replies.

Just a couple of questions about the video...

Is it possible to us a video with an alpha channel?

Is the only compatible format avi?

Is there any way that the plane can show just a part of the texture, ie can you modify its uv map?

Thank you so much so far, I really appreciate the help!

Not currently, but it's something I've been promising to look into.

Yes, only AVI is currently supported.

In the current version, no. The next release will have limited scaling of the texture on the abstract blocks.
