I have brought in a MAX Script from PFTrack and was unable to get the image plane to link to the Tiff sequence I need to start animating. I've tried making a separate plane and adding the Tiff sequence as a material, but for some reason once the scrip has been evaluated I can no longer see the image. Do I need to parent the image plane to the camera? How would I do that? I've been at this all night and can't figure it out!

Usually tracking software uses the image as a background. Hit ctrl B to open up the background dialog box. Make sure that the radial button to show image as background is checked. Also, make sure that the image sequence is mapped correctly.

You might want to watch this: http://www.videocopilot.net/tutorials/3d_crater_p2/


Explains the steps of setting up the background, a bit too quick but just keep pausing to catch up (at least I had to anyway).

Jack of all trades, master of none!
