View Full Version : got a question

I am looking at doing a new project where I am going to need to show video on an animated screen inside of LW. Is there a way of doing this. In the surface editor it only takes image files. Thanks

That you can only SEE image files means that your config file doesn't have an entry to show video files.
To that end, show all in the dialog and you can use most any vid on your machine that you have a codec for.

I still can't seem to do anything with video files. When I am trying to do is texture a plane with video. I go to to surface editor and then go to color and go under T or the texture editor where I tried to load a video file. Doesn't work any ideas or am I going under the wrong area.

Slap me if I'm overstating the obvious...

But did you change the File Type in the Load Image dialog to ALL FILES?

avi and mov aren't listed as a choice unless it's set to ALL FILES instead of Images.

Once I loaded a mov file without compression on it i had no more problems the mov video is playing on the surface I put it on. Thanks for your help!!!!!! :)
