qt movie texture alpha issue
on Apr 8, 2011 at 1:45:19 pm

Hi there

I need to use an alpha'd movie as a texture and it works fine in the preview window and in the hardware renderer but in software render (which is the one i need to do) it shows as ablack box.see jpeg for more.

I run maya 2009 on osx.

cheers

Huh, that's strange.

I don't have much experience with movies as textures. Generally it's better to work with image sequences. If I were you, I'd convert the movie into an image sequence and go from there.

Failing that, if you can at least strip out the alpha channel into a separate file or series of files, that would probably work better too.

Sorry I can't be of more help.

I went for the image sequence in the end, and it worked straight away.
I wanted to use the movie node initially because it seems to work smoother and faster in the scene when setting up.

(no bloody good if it doesn't render though) :-/

thanks for getting back appreciate it.

Jim
