ok IM a totaly newbie to LW using lightwave 8, my employer is asking me to create a rotating video wall. Basically a bunch of TV's with different things playing on the TV screens.

I can get as far as making everything and rotating, but HOW ON EARTH do I get a video on the TV screen? Is that even something I can do In lightwave?

Thanks
Luke

Of course. Learn how image-mapping works and you will find that mapping video is the same thing.

I understand how image mapping works, my dilema is how do I get video into, like an AVI or something like that instead of an image?


AFTER SOME TRIALS I JUST LOADED AN AVI INSTEAD OF A PICTURE... I GOT IT! THANKS
