We're outputting matchmove data from PFHoePro and PFTrack...
...as Maya 4.5 ascii files...
...The files load nicely, but we are having some problems with the "image plane":
We are loading dv compressed avi files as the camera plane, and sometimes Maya returns an "unable to load" error. It appears this might be a codec issue, but it seems sporadic as some avi files are fine and others do not work - yet all are the same codec etc...?
We have worked around by exporting the files as tga sequences, but we would prefer our workflow to avoid this extra step.
Also is there a quick way to get Maya to interpret x amount of zeros as a frame number. Currently we have requirements for 3 digit and 4 digit extensions, but Maya seems only to like 4 digits...?
You are right - I get the feeling I'm missing something too(!!) ;-0
