i am working on a scene in which there should be lets say 50 cubes and each of them is rotating individually.
on one face of each cube, there should be a movie.
now the camera walkes through this, showing some short glimpse of whats "on this cube"
i have posted this on the area-forums.
and i still have one problem, the movie won't play
the size doesnt fit, but i guess i can figure that out.
so how do i get the movies to play?
the movies i talk about are captured with fraps (warhammer online), the output format is avi.
when i rendered certain scenes in different formats and then attached them to the face
of the cube it says in the output window:
ERROR, Cannot open AVI (Microsoft® audio/visual interleaved) file “C:/ XXXXXXX / *.avi” as an image file:
it contains no image tracks MF did not recognise image file C:/ XXXXXXX / *.avi.
then i tried the quasi-raw-avi from fraps directly, it worked
i made a new test-scene to try this out, you can see it on the attached image(batch rendering of a random frame).
batchrender random frame (host: imageshack)
now i tried different ways to render that video (i chose 1-100 frames)
maya's output-format was set to *.targa
i did not use high quality settings.
the only things i created in this scene (and which i wanted to render) are:
a cube (which rotates randomly)
the movie applied to one face (i chose surfaceshader/color-out->movie)
the output showed the animation of the cube
BUT the movie i attached to the face did not do anything
in fact the only frame that was renderd was frame one of the movie, for the entire lenght of
i have tried this in two ways:
movie format is *.avi
timeline settings: play every frame
1st: select the face, apply surface shader, select color output (box) ->apply movie
2nd: select the face, apply 2d texture (movie)
ah, ere i forget:
the movies on the cubes should cycle, each of them got
its own playtime, i think i can reduce the playlength to a common denominator, i would have to cut the video anyway,..
but i am not so sure about the image-sequenze, because
there should be 50 cubes - 50 movies- 25fps, that would be a real mess
thanks in advance
