Does anyone know how to do a Live Video (TV) in a walkthrough? What program and procedure to use? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks! Allan

I dont quite get what you are saying. You want to render a walkthrough? Or  you want a realtime walkthrough with user control?

I'm sorry... What I'm trying to find out is what programs are used to do a "live tv" on a rendered walkthrough. I've seen some walkthrough where you can see the TV set having a "live" action on the screen. Also, how do you do a animated door where the door opens during walkthrough - can 3Ds Max do this or is it just a matter of exporting the jpegs with the door in open and closed position in a certain key frames? Thank you.

You can't do either of those in Revit.  Max is what you need for that.

I believe that you can map AVI's to objects in Max.

I did some research on mapping an AVI to an object using 3Ds Max ..... but found not luck at all. But they do have "motion-capture" thigamagigger... but i think that's something to do with bipped or something. Still hoping to find the way to do it. Thanks!!!

the only thing in Max I have ever rendered like that was fire and I had to render a different image in each frame in order to get the fire effect. Combustion is the program you need to do this, it is an advanced video editing software. Once your scene is rendered you add in the video. I think adobe may also have a program similar to this.... uhhh After Effects perhap, I can't remember.

 

search the help file for Synchronizing an Animated Bitmap with the Scene

I have tried that before and have not been able to ever get it to work, although i gave up pretty quickly. I think I just ended up with a gray plane

That's a great link Tim, I'm going to try that when i get i chance and let you know what happen. (probably you guys will beat me to it anyway) .... Alabaster, I will check out the Combustion or Affter effects too - Alabaster, you mentioned "I think I just ended up with a gray plane" maybe you need to apply the UVW like the link says? Let me know. Thanks for all your help guys!!! This is an awesome site for learning!!!

I just thought I'd share this from "help" about material editor/bitmap....

A bitmap is an image produced by a fixed matrix of colored pixels, like a mosaic. Bitmaps are useful for creating many kinds of materials, from wood grains and wall surfaces to skin and feathers. You can also use an animation or video file instead of a bitmap to create an animated material.
