Importing Video into Maya
on Jan 6, 2010 at 6:42:33 pm

Hello

I have a new problem now...I want to import a video onto a plane in maya, I have exported from after effects to a taga sequence and a .mov sequence, then re-imported it into maya once as a file and onces as a movie, onto a plane via the colour box, and I can see it fine, but when I tick use image sequence it goes white with a warning node doesnt exist.

What have I done wrong and what do I need to do?

Cheers

hi

maya needs a "special" naming for using image sequences, rename or re-export your sequence and name it like this.

mymovie.0001.tga

the number needs a dot at the beginning and that will work

Mental ray has issues with some image formats try using tiff instead, I know it hates pngs :D
