PostPosted 12.08.2012, 09:48 
Is it possible to have an animated texture on a character (like an animated gif)? and then have the texture change on some event dynamically in game? (I am asking in reference to the cryengine2) I have searched through the internet and haven't found much help, I am completely lost ?(

I the documentation you should find what you need read through the materials sections you can do many things but may require a flowgraph to change on an event

Thanks birdeez, but the links you posted are specific to cryengine 3 right?

Ahh, sorry m8 you on CE2, not used CE2 so not sure of it's capabilities.

Is there no info in the docs for it. What type of animation are you talking about, a glow effect, scrolling texture?

Are you just wanting the flowgraph side of things?

Scrolling texture, I am looking to change the texture of a specific body part of my character constantly, as long as it it's alive, when it dies, I want the scrolling to stop (Iam guessing this isn't possible) so I would just replace it with a different texture on it's death.

EDIT: There exists information, but no information on the flowgraph aspect :/

yep, the flowgraph side of things is what iam looking for :)

The scrolling and animated textures documentation in the CE3 docs should apply to CE2 as well. As far as I know texture properties haven't changed.

yes its possible to exchange materials or to animatie textures on characters.

e.g. no problem to replace skin texture with a video using my plugin.

there are not much texture related flownodes supplied with the ce3 sdk so you might need to create your own ones using C++ if youre doing more advanced stuff.

edit: saw youre using ce2, there its also possible to exchange materials.
