Movie-texture with opacity for wasp wings
I’m pretty new to Maya and have been struggling with this problem for a while.
I’m modelling and animating a flying wasp and since the wings flap much faster than 25 frames per second, I’ve done an animation (avi-movie) of the wings in After Effects. I had no problems attaching the movie to a texture on a polygon plane (see image) and getting it to play, but I also need a transparency map. I tried to use the same movie as transparency but nothing happens (except the edge becomes a bit jagged). I also tried using a series of images but I get an error saying “Warning: Texture file doesn't exist, node file1”.
I’d be forever grateful if anyone could point me in the right direction, or perhaps knows of a smarter way of solving the problem!
Thanks alot /Tove, Sweden
