stream video to image plane in maya

Post by evengi » Mon Jun 08, 2020 5:40 am

I will be using VCS on an animated Cg mixed with real set feature.

I would like to stream a video from an external real camera into maya, and place it on a free image plane.
By tracking the camera with optitrack and importing those data into Maya with VCS, I hope to create a virtual stage, where I can see my real background from the camera with 3D elements from Maya imposed on top.

This way my photographer may frame previz animation with real backdrops.

This is a Maya/VCS question, and I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask?
