I’ve got a short sequence of animated texture that needs to sit still from frame 1 to frame x then play for the duration of the texture clip and then stop and sit still again.
I’ve searched for hours and can’t find anything that says how to turn a strip on and off at arbitary times. Or how to control the frame rate as it plays.
The StartFr field in the “Anima and Movie” window is defined as the start frame of the movie to be used in the animation, not the frame in the animation where the movie will be started. Either way I don’t get a movie playing.
I expect an ipo curve will be involved, but can’t find a “frame” channel in the ipo curves for a material or texture. .
I get this really black surface that is not a real material. I’ve tried a sequence of images and an avi file. They both render black.
If there is a turtorial that shows how to start and stop a short animated texture, I’d really like to see it.
