Circular Screen in Vision

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to import a round video screen in from VW into vision, I did this from an extruded circle but can't get the video to play on it. Is there a way of achieving this?

Before exporting from Spotlight did you assign it a Vision video source?

Spotlight>Visualization>Select Vision Video source, doesn't matter what you assign, it just tells Vision to open the assign video input dialogue for the screen object when opening the file.

Otherwise you can right click on the screen object and select the 'Assign Video Input' option. One important thing to note is that you can only assign an active camera's or NDI stream's, so if there is no NDI playing Vision won't know it is available to assign

You can also select the screen object in Vision and assign a video file as a texture, in the properties pane, the main limitation with this method is you have no control over the video playback, it will be continuous looped
