Join Chad Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Final tips and tricks, part of Element 3D Essential Training (2013).
Before we close up this training series, I have a few closing tips and tricks for…you that we didn't get to in the rest of the training.…The first one is this Animated Textures project. We can actually, instead of just…using a simple image for a texture for an object, we could actually use a movie.…And, that can create some interesting results.…We have a very simple billboard setup here.…I also have the SciFi Project from the last chapter.…And so, what we're going to do is go to Element. And, I'm going to open up my…Custom Layers, Custom Texture Maps. And for Layer 1, I'm going to change it to the…SciFi Project Final.…
Now, you don't have to necessarily use a precomp, but what I've found is that…the way I set up the UVs--with this billboard, and the image here, the movie--…they were not set right.…So, what I had to do is pre-compose this and rotate it, so that it would look…correct when it was applied to the billboard.…So, going back to the Element, we can go to Scene Setup. And, I'll go ahead and…
