View Full Version : dynamic procedural texture pixel color lookup via uv coordinates?

02 February 2006, 05:50 PM
hi im trying to patch the color of a pixel in a texture at an certain uv coordinate on an editablepoly to the omnilight.rgb i have hovering over the editablepoly.
ive figured out how to get the uvwcoordinate on the object but havent figured out how to access that coordinate on a dynamic procedural gradient map i have as a texture on the object.
using bitmap() doesnt really help unless i render the gradient animation
what methods are there to access procedural texture color values at given uv coordinates?
all help greatly appreciated.
The point of all this is to get the appropriate light color for the lights that cycle along a path on the surface of this ( creature.
All help greatly appreaciated
