loop movie texture
hi, I have a 46frame movie texture in maya 6.5 I would like to loop. I already created a massive movie file by pasting and adding the file to itself in quick time. But having a 260mb .mov cannot be the sollution, especially because I need something quite long now.
I tried to modify the expression attached to the frameextension of my texture.
I don't have maya on this machine, but my epression attemt was someting like this:

movie01.framextension = frame;

if (frame < 46)
movie01.framextension = 0;

I tried to tell maya to jump back to the start of my movie after it is done, but It didn't work and I am not relly good with maths (to be precise I am an idiot)

So I'm asking you guys for help and to laugh at my pathetic expression

I also put this thread in the texturing forum since i didn't really know where it belongs to

any help would be greatly appreciated!
