Unhappy Image Plane Import Mac Os X

Hi there,

Well issues.. When I import an image palne on a camera, I don't see the image when RGB, RGBA, or illuminance are selected.

Only black with an outline. I usually have to plqay with the image and reduce the number of the pixels in Photoshop.

Anybody knows if there are any sort of limitations or if there is a known issue?

Thanks !!

I would just use a normal polygon plane.

Instead of an image plan?

Thanks

A workaround might be to attach an aim constraignt on the cam to the surface normal of the plane, that way, it always faces the camera....somewhat....kinda like a biga$$ sprite...
