About Video Texture Support

Synopsis

This hack allows you to use Bink video files as textures.

Usage

Using Bink video files as textures has some caveats that normal movies do not:

  • The Bink file must have a width and height that are powers of 2 (32, 64, 128, 256, etc).
  • Any audio inside the Bink file will not play in-game.

Once you have a Bink file that meets the first condition, using it as a texture is quite simple. See the following sections for information on how to do so with the tool you're using.

Using Lucas' Pure3D Editor

To add a video texture to your P3D file using the Pure3D Editor, you just need to modify the Texture parameter of a Shader. The value has to be a path starting with a / inside the Mod Launcher's file system.

If the movie has transparency, it's also important to set the Blend Mode to Alpha. Other Blend Modes are also supported.
