I am working in maya 11 and have created a polygon sphere (earth) and would like to play .mov files on each face of the 'earth' for a symobolic piece I'm working on.
Steps i took after creating my polygone sphere - Rclick - add new material - lamber - color - file - from here I wasn't allowed to select my .mov files only my .jpgs. How can I import a .mov file into the face of my sphere...do I need to make it a nurbs sphere?
Hello Heather, in order for you to use video on a face or object, you must first convert your .mov to an actual image sequence. Maya does not play movie files as a .mov or .avi etc. This tutorial should help.
