I am using the mental ray material (environment/background camera map mtl) in 3ds Max 2012.
I am using it to get reflections onto my geometry from a video i have shot.
So in the map slot I have put the .avi file of the video.
The translation time now takes like 10 minutes, while rendering time takes about 20 seconds. And half the time I get an insufficient memory message and it has to cancel.
Does anyone have a solution to this?
What is the best way to get the reflection from a video file? will making it an image sequence improve this?
