What about the video texture plugin you were working in? It would be great.

I want to undeline this request. I have tried the workaround using a bunch of sequenced pictures. It works nice when named carefully and when the pixelnumbers are in the power of 2. But: from some reason only 200 files are possible to be used, as it seemes. This means, the "video texture" constructed like that is a repeating movie of about 12 seconds lenght (the frame per second rate seemes to be fixed at 15 within light-up).
It works perfect, but the restriction to 12 seconds is a pitty for me and for what I would like to do (presenting a 5 minute movie on a screen within a scetchup model).
Are there plans to improve the video texture-funktion?

Regards, Stefan

I did start and post a youtube video showing a proof of concept, but while pretty neat, it doesn't justify the amount of development work that would have to go into this.

So for the time being, this is on hold. :-(
