Opening png sequence on individual planes
on Dec 28, 2018 at 7:30:12 pm

Hey,

wanted to ask if possible, and if so how, to open a sequence of hundreds of pngs mapped on individual planes, positioned at even distances form each other. iow i want to have multiple planes that are positioned on a z axis offset by just a mm or so, like if i'd cloned them, but each to have a different png image of a video, so that basically you're able to see each frame of the video in a z-axes time laps. i know how to do this individually but wonder if would it be possible to automate it so i don't have to spend countless hours of importing 200 images one by one.

thanks.

You could try using the Free Magicbook Plugin https://nitro4d.com

You just need to select the Folder with the images and then create the book (front Only); once you do that, you could make it editable and you will get every image in a plane.



I hope that helps.

Good Luck

you can clone the planes, put a MoGraph MultiShader in Color (or luminance) and don't try and set up the layer in the multishader, just hit the Add From Folder button and select the folder the pngs are in (make sure they are all in a folder with no other images). Then set the MultiShader's Mode to Index Ratio.
