i asked you about this because my own first tests produced some very unpredictable results as well.
Since i'm still discovering all this stuff i tend to blame all imprecision on not enough exploration invested and experience gained.
On october 7, 2008 you said : "I would like to think if I gave it another shot today I could get the desired results."
That fascinated, motivated and frustrated me enough to try and dig deeper, but to no avail...
i better move on then, especially since, indeed, not having viewport preview is a hell.
Never really played with animating uv offsets, but i can imagine how Flat Mapping + animating Texture Tag Parameters and Coordinates can be a very precise alternative for some uses ( that is what you're talking about, right ?).
c4d definitely has room for improvement on how it deals with animated movies.
also, thanks for the thumbs up.
i have some very generous role models
, and i'm learning a lot.
figuring this stuff out is just passion.
As daveglanz said : the real value is in the comments and replies.
there's no sound indeed.
the david lynch soundtrack you hear is alien.
