    Moin,

    kann man mittlerweile videos files (mkv/Opus/etc) in eine scene einbetten ?
    Auf zb einen TV screen ? Oder große videoleinwände wie in New york city ?
    Oder sind weiterhin nur speicherfressende Bildsequenzen möglich ?

    lg,

    Malte

    Yeah videos are now possible to embed in the scene but the current video embed action part plugin doesn't seem to allow setting a specific size only blend or regular. The Lua script function doesn't currently seem to allow positioning but does allow scaling. Hopefully Simon will sort it out so that we can actually size & position as we see fit in the future.

    What you could do I suppose is create your background as a scene object with the bits where the video are supposed to play cut out of them, then create the small screen videos all as a single video & then assign it to a scene object behind the scene object containing the background image. Should do the trick.

    when you use the plugin the plugin will handle it for you.
    The plugin will give you a new action part where you can define the movie file which should get played.

    Okay, this is really cool now.
    Tried a "quicktime events" based action part in my game with different movie parts.  Worked very well.

    Thanks for implementing this feature in vs 5.

    Btw, would be great to get the possibility to "pause" the actual playing video for some time.

    Thanks,

    Create some still image shots of the first frame of each video segment, add them to scene objects & use/link a value or conditions to determine which image should be shown. You can then determine which video to play over the top of the scene based on the players actions.
