Is it possible to use the same texture in multiple animations?

  • Hey Michael!

    Thanks for bringing this up. We'll take a look at this :)

    For base color, using different materials should allow you to do this. 

    If it's alright, do you mind sharing with us the project so we can have a better understanding of what you're trying to achieve, and maybe we can think of a work around?

    Thanks in advance!

    The effect is mostly done, but I had to reduce the number of explosions to fit the file size limit.

    Also theoretically if I could reuse the same texture for each animation, the lens would be pretty tiny or I could have used a higher resolution / frame rate / longer animation, and reused it for all the animation sequences.

  • That looks great!

    Ya I understand the inconvenience. We're definitely looking into it. 

    Maybe one other thing to consider is to put all the explosion in one screen image (so you can have as many as you want), and then use the "Fill" fill mode on the image so that it can fit every screen.


    Can't wait to see the final Lens!
