View Full Version : Unable to import video

03-20-2014, 12:45 PM
I'm trying to import a reference clip as a texture on a surface so i can scrub / animate along with it, but LW keeps giving me 'unsupported file type' error on just about every format.

Tried AVI uncompressed, quicktime(animation), h264 (mp4), jpeg(mov), motion jpeg(mov), mpeg2 (mpg), h264(mov), all with no luck.

I'm not using image sequence because its horribly slow to scrub along image sequences, since LW seems to load an image at a time regardless of how many times you replay the thing even a simple scene having just a cube comes to a crawl if an image sequence is used.


I'm on windows 7, version 11.6.1

Looks like AVI compressed for DV w/ interlacing works. Def not ideal.
