Question about animated textures.
« on: August 05, 2009, 02:52:33 am »

I'm not suggesting this (since it has already been suggested, and I hope it will be implemented soon), but I was wondering how exactly does animated textures work. When you go to apply a texture onto a plane do you upload an .avi file (or any other movie file) instead of a picture? Or do you have to put a bunch of pictures together? (I personally like the first option better)

Thanks for clearing this up for me :)

If animated textures were to be enabled my guess would be that both would hopefully be available.  Image sequences can be nice occasionally for some jobs, but of course .avi files or .gif or other common animated files would be preferred.

kreator, the computer that I put carrara was on the computer that just recently crashed (it was 8 years old), but no worry I have it on the other "good" computer. And I did not know that carrara had animated texture support so I am looking into it right now.

Sorry, this is a little off topic, but kreator, when I go to dotan8 and click on the tutorials link I try to watch the morphing tutorial but it never buffers. Is there another way I can watch the video? (or is there a way to download it?)

Thanks

Thanks Kreator, I've downloaded it and about to watch it.
I use Firefox 3.5, It would be nice on the web-page if we could download each individual video.
Also thanks for taking the time to make all of these tutorials. If anyone needs help starting out anim8or, I'll refer them to your tutorials
