I'm trying to use animated textures in my maya project.
I have tried using an .AVI as well as .BMP and .TGA sequences.
I've ticked and unticked 'use image sequence'
and 'interactive sequence options' etc until my eyes crossed,
but the frame preview seems to stay black, and the rendered result doesn't show the frame either.
the little info line down the bottom says
Warning: Texture file D:/graphics/lines/ln00.bmp doesn't exist, node file1
even though it DOES exist.
i'm assuming it's a problem with the MEL script? but i'm not very MEL savvy yet.
any ideas or help would be appreciated.
