Video on Image Plane - Maya 2014


I'm just moving from Max to Maya, and I'm having trouble rendering an image plane with a .MOV file set as it's source. After looking through quite a few forums I see that the default response is to convert the video to an image sequence, but my video is showing up just fine in the workspace. The problem only occurs when I go to render the scene. I figure, if Maya has the feature, and so does Matchmover, then it's just one extra step which could be avoided...

I have the image plane attached to a camera I exported from Matchmover.

The viewport uses an entirely different rendering engine than the renderer, so what works in the viewport is not necessarily the best guide for what will work in the render. Plus, Maya has historically had spotty results dealing with video files. The advice to convert to an image sequence is good. In fact, it's generally good advice for your entire pipeline for a variety of reasons.

Ahh Ok, that's good enough for me.

Thank you!
