View Full Version : Simulation of a Video Feedback Loop in LW?

Here is one to rack your brains on. I am going to try to see if this can be simulated. Has anyone ever taken a Video Camera and pointed it right at the monitor displaying the video feed from the camera? What you get is a video feedback loop, which resembles the Mirror facing a mirror effect. Where the reflected image is replicated into infinity. Just wondering if this can be mimicked in LW. Should be fun to find out.

Yes. IIRC, it involved a projection on a poly that fed into a second camera that output into another camera.

Using the CCTV shader, described starting on page 1959 of the LightWave 2015.3 manual... ;)
