Noise Map and animation constraint
show user profile  GreenFlag
I have a test scene like that:
A material with a noise map on a plane.
the point helper has an attachment constraints with the plane and the box is linked to the point helper.
When I render now max gives "internal error" and dont render.
Any idea? :)

PS: I try to have it work that way because to put directly a noise modifier on top of the plane doesnt give me a nice result visually. (in the material slot I can combine the noise with a mask)

Are you rendering a still image or an animation?

Are you rendering straight to a movie format, or rendering individual still images? I'm guessing that you are rendering a movie, because that's the error max gives when it can't use a codec properly.

Try rendering to still images instead, and loading them into the ram player to view the animation, and save it to an AVI, etc from there.

ok, it rendered but the object doesnt follow the plane.
I guess its not possible to attach constraint an object or helper to a plane that is animated with a deformation material.
Thanks though, u pointed it right
