Thanks for the tutorial. What did you use to generate the tiff sequence from your movie? Also, when I import an avi into c4d it loses all its sharpness and looks like VHS. I'm using the same aspect ratio and fps, so I'm not sure why the avi is so blurry. It looks fine in syntheyes.

you have to export your movie as a tiff sequence or a png sequence.
make sure you have the whole sequence in one folder or else you would not get the whole tiff or png sequence.

Hi, thanks for the tutorial. What did you use to generate the tiff sequence from your movie? I imported my original DV AVI into C4D as a texture but it looks terrible, like VHS. It looks fine in syntheyes. I also tried exporting a tiff sequence from quicktime but it also looks very bad, jagged and low-res. Any help would be appreciated.
