View Full Version : Lambert with a movie attached doesn't render

06 June 2010, 05:45 PM

I have EKG monitor geometry which has lambert shader for the screen that has the movie (EKG curve) attached as colour. IF I playblast it the ekg works perfectly so we can see the curve clearly animated and doing typical EKG action but when I hit render the screen is black and the curve (ie. the movie file) is not visible. That is in Mental Ray.

If I render in Maya software then the movie shows but upside down.

How do I tweak it so its shows in the mental ray render? Anyone knows?

thank you

Is 'Optimize Animation Detection' ON in the Render Settings? Try turning it off.

It was ON so I switched it off. No difference. Mental Ray still doesn't render it

Try taking in a frame sequence instead of a movie.
