Yea

I don't think u can actually load a movie file into it. The way I have done it before is through an image sequenc.

Example:
image001-image055

Well ... you might want to try AVI ... but not your DIVX-and-more-plug-ins-that-mess-up-the-original-avi type ... since Maya would need a decoder to displays those.

Besides MyK has a point.

Thanks for your replys, i re-enstalled maya and it worked .

You can have a avi/mov on imageplanes. But you have to key the frame-extention at the start and finish to make it play and show up in the final render.

Thx

Hey Nozzy,

I'm trying to assign a mov file as a map, but cannot get it to work. Would you mind walking me through how you got it happeneing? I assigned the material, and keyed the Frame Extension so it matches the number of frames, but nothing displays or renders.

Thanks,
