realtime video in environment background
show user profile  zeefusion
Hi all,

Is there a way I can get real time playback of a video I add as an environment background? A performance setting somewhere?

It only plays real time if I add to an object such as a plane in the scene. As I scrub the timeline the viewport background only updates when I stop scrubbing.

You can have a animated sequence as background file, hit alt b, browse to the img sequence and tick the sequence box. You can define the start end and hold frames if you like.
Make sure yo check your aspect ratio and fps settings.

Edit: uhh, realtime, depends on your gpu i think and the resolution of the jpg sequence you choose as background.

Running on a GTX TITAN and the image sequence is 720p. I think it must be a restriction of using environment background :(

I found it in the end, it is in preferences under viewport. You need to tick update background while playing.
