Another script question (at render execution)
show user profile  luima
Hello guys! i have a question for the script masters :D. i have a image sequence saved on a folder, and i want to use them on the background for each rendered frame. i know max does this automatically but i want to be able to modify the order, lets say i want the first frame to use image01 then the second frame to use image03 , the third frame image05 and so on, how can i do this?
thanks in advance !!

Just a quick thought: change the frame number using slidertime = x, then assign the background image (I need to look that one up) and then render the frame.

Here's a thought that doesn't involve maxscript (just an idea). Could you import that sequence into a program like AE and then choose to render out every nth frame like you can do in 3ds max as another sequence to a different location?

Then just use the newly created sequence in your project? I don't know if this is possible with AE, but I think it would be worth while to look into.

thanks for your quick reply guys!
@Mr.Burns yes! thats the solution i am looking for, i just need the background image command to test it out.
@9Krausec thanks for your solution also, i still need to do it with maxscript for specific reasons regarding this project.

If I remember correctly, you need to use environmentMap. But that might also depend on your renderer.
