Default Looping AVI textures ???

Hi,

I was just wondering how I would go about looping a 2 second AVI clip over the duration of several minutes, without resorting to a massive video size?

Is there a button I can click or something? I'm really confused.

Thanks in advance,

Geo.

Should be able to loop in whatever you're using to view the Avi. I know Windows mediaplayer and quicktime both support looped playbacks.

Wait, I think I misunderstood. Do you mean using the AVI as an animated texture?

Yes,
sorry if I didnt explain properly, I meant looping a movie clip as an AVI texture.

For example, if I had a 2 second clip on a TV screen in Maya, and I wanted it to loop over and over... rather than just creating a huge video file with all the loops there, I wondered how I could loop the AVI movie texture within maya itself, to save file size.

Look forward to hearing from someone.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Geo.
