Import movie to model


(Ricks) #1

I would like to import a movie to a monitor in a model of a workstation, or to a TV screen in the background.
Is it possible to have an animation playing on a surface while manipulating scene in 3D?
Green screen effect?
New to this,

Animated textures are currently not supported on sketchfab, but it might be in the future.
It's still possible to "cheat" and have that movie effect, see model here:

Yes, that is exactly what I need.
I'm not currently a 3Ds user though.
I wonder if the same thing could be done with other software. I design large video walls and some animated content would
really make a nice presentation.
This would be a HUGE feature for Sketchfab if possible.


Animated textures or video textures are something we want to implement in the future. We have a demo doing it with the Viewer API:

Yes, that's it!
Can you show me how?
I am not a coder, but I work in a building full of them. If you could point me in the right direction I'll run with it.
I guess it's never too late to learn.

Thank you.


You can find the source code for that experiment here:
