View Full Version : Projecting movies within scenes & overhead

I'm setting up a scene where I'm projecting a quicktime movie onto an object in the scene.

if I am only using part of the quicktime movie in the scene, does it take any more processor overhead than if I edited that clip to only the duration I'm going to use, or does Lightwave simply regard the clip as a series of images, which it applies to the surface in question, stopping when it gets to the end as defined by the scene and the settings for that clip in Image Editor (start frame and end frame)?

thank you!

the frame will be loaded from disk on render time. Not really an overhead. If I were you I'd only edit it if I'd get an out of memory situation.
