Join David Mattingly for an in-depth discussion in this video Bringing the moving background into Maya, part of Digital Matte Painting Essentials 5: Camera Projection in Maya.
…We've rendered out our toned moving background from…After Effects as a series of sequential TIFFs.…And now we need to bring them into Maya.…We want to add the moving plate to both the water and the sky, and they…currently have two different textures, since the sky…is using another projector to make it larger.…let's close filmBackatYa, and add the sky first.…Right-click…and choose Material Attributes from the drop-down menu.…Click on the Color Attribute.…
Then the Projector, and through to the image.…Maya treats an image sequence just like a still image, so…you just need to swap out the still for the moving footage.…Navigate out of the source images folder, then to…the movies folder where we placed the water sky…folder and click on the first image in the sequence.…You can see that the image immediately change,…so we have successfully loaded it into Maya.…However, Maya by default, only uses the first image in a sequence.…
So you'll have to scroll down and click on the Use…Image Sequence button for it to use all of the images.…
