Add text with different texture / material into projection

PostThu Nov 30, 2017 10:56 am

Hi - silly question that has me stumped

I have a still image converted into a great 3d projection. All works great. 2 cameras. 1 to project and 1 for the scene

But I want to add text into the 3d scene - but it gets the camera projection material. I tried replace - I changed material id's. How do I make the text white for example ?

thanks

I am not a 3D expert, but have you tried adding another 3Dmerge and then put your text in there? This way it will not be affected (I think) by the projector, which is effectively a light.

if you project the image in texture mode not as light, it should be only affect objects with the "catcher" material connected.
