When I try to load a large avi file as a background image in 'Image world', lightwave crashes on render with 'critical error occured'...if I convert it into a wmv file its fine...never had this problem with previous version on 32 bit. Any ideas? Is it the file size? It was only 251mb..In the past I've loaded much bigger files into LW and its worked fine.

Avi file is 1280x720 on LW 11.5 64 bit

tbh I do not know why perhaps a codec issue , I would maybe suggest converting the sequence into png then running it

No i don't understand either...not had this problem on previous versions...bit of a bore having to convert it to a png file first. No one else come across this problem then I guess??

Workflow wise, it is better to have a light image sequence (like jpeg), LW is slow when reading movie / avi files, but much faster when loading JPG sequences.
