Random video clips on sprites or instance particles
on Jun 27, 2010 at 11:36:50 am

I'll start describing what I'd like to achieve...

I've got 16 video clips (different lengths), which I would like to randomly be assign to particles as textures at their birth.


I'd like each particle's lifespan to be equal to whichever video clip randomly was assigned to it.

i.e. each particle dies after it's textured video has run out.

As my subject indicates, I've done quick attempts using sprites and instance geometry.

Note: The videos are all same dimension & I wouldn't need to control particle size or anything.

Any help would be GREATLY apprectiated.
