Hey Aris...

What you need to do is to render out this animation into an image sequence, preferably .tga files (After Effects). Create your shader (I prefer lambert for this). Click on the options box next to Color. When the render node menu opens, select "image" from the 2D textures section and make sure "normal" is selected. Select "file" (it's the second one down on the right hand side).

Under the File Attributes, click on the folder next to "image name" and select the first image in your image sequence and it will import the sequence. Just under "image name" there are 3 check boxes, click "use image sequence".

Now just apply your shader like normal, and make sure your UV's are layed out.

Hope this helps.

Best...

Hi Aris...

No this won't import a video, but it will import a sequence of images that will play along with the timeline, kinda like a flip-book.
