Re: Video on Zaxworks Text by Edward Wu on Jun 19, 2009 at 6:24:39 pm
If you mean applying a video as a texture map for your text, then you can do that for both ProAnimator and 3D Invigorator.
For ProAnimator, you have the option to apply ".mov" or ".avi" files directly as a texture map onto your objects. In 3D Invigorator, you will have to first import your video into After Effects, then look at the Effect Controls panel for the 3D Invigorator layer. Under "Layer Maps" apply the video as "Layer Map 1". Now, in the 3D Invigorator setup window, you can apply the Layer Map to the material by clicking the "-" drop-down menu next to the texture map box to apply Layer Map 1 as a texture. When you drag the material onto the text, you will have the video onto your text.
After you applied the movie to the text, you will be able to see it move and rotate with the text as well.
