I know this is a dumb question to many, but I forgot how to put a video file into the LAYOUT of Lightwave, I know how to do the images individually, but I know there has to be a way for the video to be displayed?

Image Editor->Load

Select your animation file, then in the Image Type panel, select Animation.

Well I just played with it more and it seems like I can't use RTV files. AVI files play just fine; I was told that RTV files were the best of the best. Are AVI files the same quality as RTV? Right now I have VT2 and LW7.5b, I was told that in VT3 AVI was better than VT2. Please tell me what is what, thank you TRIPLE G for helping me.

Seems you don't have a plugin loaded: rtv's look absolutely pristine in lw (duh! of course!) and it works flawlessly.

Check your plugins for this file: lw6_vt.p. I believe that's the one you are in need of.

Good luck!
