Is there a nodal version of CCTV shader ? I need more control over it than the standard one. I want to have a character with a texture for a face which is being filmed by another camera.

No, but it must be possible to recreate it.

What is the problem with CCTV ?

The problem is that is is a shader only so it is not flexible enough. For instance you can't shade it the way you want but only in the way programmers designed it.

Yes I certainly agree, but my question was more to know what specific points :) There are no CCTV material but ago always way around a problem with LightWave ;)

Well this is what I want to do. CCTV camera is filming a flat face of a character and then this image is applied as a texture to a characters head. This works alright, but when I apply CCTV shader to a head I am limited in a ways I can shade the head, meaning it has a mind of its own. Also I can't move the character around because the face does not stick.
