Howdy,

Knowing nothing about python, this request might be more painful than its worth, but here goes. . .

VrayforC4d does not yet support camera mapping. It has been suggested on their support forums that it might be possible to write a python script to work around this issue. So I'm throwing this out for any curious programmers:

What is needed is a script that would bake camera mapped objects using an animated texture projected from a moving camera. :wip:

many thanks,

No script needed :)
You have that option within the BakeTexture Tag already.
Just make sure you have your scene saved as Project so you
have a tex folder that the textures gets rendered into or
the result will land on your main disc top level as afaik,
the BakeTexture Tag doesn't have a file name option.

An alternative is to use texiDRIVER setting up projections
as that would work directly in Vray. (xfiles in my sign)

Cheers

Oooh nooooo! I was taking the texiDRIVER route when I found my old car R12 will not accommodate. Prolly a good reason to upgrade though :shrug:

thx again and will try the default bake as suggested.

Though I couldn't use texiDRIVER this time, the bake texture tag worked perfectly for my first test. Thanks again for your time to teach! :wavey:

Lennart, you mind explaining how to use texiDriver properly? Trying to camera map a texture in vray. What goes in TexTag what goes in [Driver] slot... thanks!

The READ_ME Overview does cover that.
Both link fields are optional, using a specific object other than
the textag object as Driver and controlling a specific textag
(i.e if you have more than one on an object)

Cheers
