Rather than converting captured video to images or another type of compressed file, is there a way to directly load a DV avi in the Image Editor dialog box? Aura 2.5 / Mirage can, how can I in Lightwave?

Thanks,

Frank

Loading a DV avi file into Layout does work fine. I've just tried it to make sure with some DV footage that I shot with my camera. Make sure you have all your I/O plugins added. It works fine in Lightwave 7.5.

Can you give me the creation date on your avi.p file. I have all of the in-out plugins loaded and just can't load a dv-avi.

Will your avi plug-in allow you to save a dv avi file as well?

Thanks,

Frank

The creation date of the avi.p file is March 15, 2002. I don't believe you can save a DV Avi with this plugin (I don't see any DV compressors that show up in the options), but you can save out an uncompressed avi, then take it into After Effects and save out one from there.
