Can anyone help me figure this out. I am using the free downloaded TrueSpace 7.6. I can apply an AVI as a background image, and I can apply an AVI as a texture on a cube. Then I can move the cube across the screen (animate the object). But I cannot get all 3 to render to file. If I render to file using the "modeler" choice, I get the animated background AVI playing, and the animated AVI texture playing on the cube, but the cube movement does not render, or it moves for a few frames and then stops. If I render to file using the "workplace" choice, the background image displays but only the first frame and the texture on the cube is static as well, but the movement (animation) of the cube across the screen renders. It is like it just can't handle rendering all three moving items (a moving background, a moving texture, and a moving object) at once. I have tried every different rendering option and desktop option ie. bridge on, off, auto that I can think of. Any suggestions?

For Workspace you can use script created by Clintonman, link here:

Also has video in how to use.

Background you can use a plane with texture using script above.

In modeler you should be able to get all texture animations and object animations working. One key is to make sure you key frame the animated material with first and last frames painting the object if I remember correctly. This goes as well with the background tool in modeler. is a privately held community resource website dedicated to Active Worlds.
