Architectural Screen


This might be a really lame question, but I am trying to create an object that looks like a screen. Does anyone know any tricks on how to do this? I just thought of creating a plane and making it partially transparent and mapping a jpg of a screen to it. Any better way of doing this??

Much Thanks,

just a tip... if the screen is turned on, use scanlines (those horizontal lines tv's and monitors screens show)

and maybe some glow...?

btw i'm no texture hero, just my 2 cents

I had a deformer project due for school, I modeled out a T.V. and made it dance while the movie played on the screen. I did this by mapping a Quicktime movie on to it, and it looked fine. I overlayed the scanelines in arfter efects for the screen map, and animated the visabilty in maya ( for the T.V turning on and off).
If your project is a still then just mapping a Targa or a jpeg will work just fine.......
So long and thanks for all the fish.
