Should I RTFM or can someone summarize the easiest way to go about this? I'm making a Platonic solid with scrolling numbers on each side. I want to have the object transparent and just have the scrolling numbers visible to form the shape of the object.

I have Quicktimes of the numbers with alpha, but I can convert to an image sequence if that will work better.

What are the procedures and pitfalls?

Thanks,

I seemed to remember that there were problems with some formats for this. It escapes me which ones. I used Quicktime Animation codec and it worked fine. I tried a Targa sequence and it would not import. How to map the thing was the biggest issue.
