View Full Version : Map Video To Surface

How do I map a QuickTime video clip to a surface such as a cube in Lightwave 9? I just need to put the video clip on one side of the cube. If there are any good tutorials that you can point me to that would be appreciated too.

Easiest way is to select the polygon and put a different surface on it. This is very basic stuff, assigning texture maps is covered in the manual.

Do a google search for "lightwave tutorials" and you'll find more tutorials than you can possibly do :D

I like to put a UV map on the surface (usually a rectangle) I'm going to put video on.

In Layout load the quicktime video using the "Image Editor" (F6) panel. At the bottom of the panel set the Post Behavior to your desired settings.

In the surfacing panel, add your video clip as you would any other image. (as covered in the manuals)
