View Full Version : Help - video footage as texture

12-10-2006, 03:41 PM

Can you help I have just completed a project that involved 4 spheres orbiting the earth. THis was obviously really easy to set up etc.
However I then had to composit video footage onto each sphere, this I actually did in Aftereffects, but it's rather time consuming keyframing all the movement and sorting out the masks for over laps etc etc.

My questions is, could I apply the video footage to the spheres in LW to save myself some work.
I've looked everywhere for info but can only find stuff on placing video on backgrounds.

Thanks in Advance

You can apply an image sequence as a texture map in the same way as a single image.
You can control the start/end image and looping options, etc in the image editor.
Hope that helps.

If you want to apply video as texture, you can do it just like you do with an image - just be sure in Image Editor to set the Image Type to Animation.
