I have created a vintage tv. My intention is to add a 15sec animated gif to a image plane and use that as the screen.
The final output is on a login page for a website.
The reason I am modelling it in 3d rather than just using an image of a tv and comping a video beneath, is that i want it to look as authentic as possible — which includes have the video emission from the plane affect the bezel of the frame and also for the glass to be reflective etc etc…
I’m assuming I can’t rely on the inherent brightness and contrast of the video footage on the plane to fully create the effect? What can I do aside from manually animating the emission values?
Any thoughts would be massively helpful.
