Animated image, txd. Is this possible?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,
In the graphic engine of gta san andreas there is the possibility of loading an image file.gif (animated gif) in TXD ?? either with a .asi plugin, a cleo mod or maybe another way. (bink video, etc).

No, I don't think so, GIF is not supported.

 

If I recall correctly, that game engine adds several images and merge it to same model to make it like animated textures like one of LV casinos or something similar.

That's right, but that requires UV anim in the .dff, there is a tutorial on that but it has not worked and I followed it step by step. That's why I was asking if there was something similar like a script that would help make everything simpler.

Yep, GIF would make it much simpler without all this complex steps.

 

@ZAZ can help you on this one as he made one of billboard with animated frames.

Not sure about gif, but when I worked on GTA URM the guys said that they can animate an object by changing the textures. I think the 8 must be the aliquot part of the total number of frames.

 

The animation was generated by scrolling through the textures one by one; the speed was controlled by a script or game engine.

 

I did railway station screen textures using this method, but the guys never had a chance to finish it.

I have a max script to create an animated texture on a single flat model that shows a slide show with max. 16 frames

 

Another test i did was to show textures on screen by cleo script that needs a txd archiv within lot of textures to show it like a little video

That needs to extract the single frames of a video and put it into the txd file, it's a hard work and creates a txd file with giant size, maybe 50 pics for 10 second movie, it doesn't make sense

@ZAZ Do you still have those scripts? both will serve me I will try to do something with them, at least until someone invents something better.

 

(long life to GTA SA) 🤓

Cleo mod that shows textures on screen like a movie

download TXD_Clip

 

Animated Textures

download gta_script_pack.zip ( i believe it's the download that i downloaded to get the max scripts)

download tutorial in richtext format

download tutorial in word doc format

tutorial video:

 

I have done it!! thank you very much @ZAZ

The problem previously was that the SA_Tools scritps do not work 100% in 3DS Max 2012. but in 3ds max 2011 worked correctly.

I just have to find out if it supports Night Vertex.

 

Watch the video with the example I made. (*in game tv and sound)

No, sorry, I don't think this guy has anything to do with the project, but it sort of looks like it was described to me.
