Just thought you would like to know my latest experiments with Infinite.

I have found that on a mixed material you can use a video file to control how one material moves over the other. The example is a quick will it work, but I can see many uses for this type of thing.

It is just a random black and white pattern saved as an avi and loaded in useing the density tab (animated texture node all settings at default.

Will be doing more work on this over the next few days (trying to get a stream running through some hills for example).

I have tried this on an eco system but it will not work!

Ok thanks, got them working now. They look very cool. I'm sure this could be used if working towards something such as a time lapse video effect.

FYI: you can use this on the transparancy tab as well, could be useful for simmering effects! animated decals things appearing/disapearing ect.
