Hello!
I´m having a problem with the camera mapping technique described on those tutorials. I want to add more lights to the scene, but as the planes are set to not recieve light, new lights have no effect on the layers.
How can i make this work?

This tutorial inspired me to take it one step farther and make a tutorial on projecting images/video onto 3D extruded shapes in the new raytrace render engine.

GREAT VIDEOS ! I HAVE BEEN ALL OVER TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO USE MS PAINT, PHOTOSHOP 7.0 AND ADOBE AFTER AFFECT SO I CAN DO A VIDEO PROJECTION AGAINST MY HOME FOR HALLOWEEN FOR THE KIDS BUT IT HAS OVERWHELMED ME. IS THERE ANY WAY YOU CAN DO A VIDEO ON HOW TO ADD VIDEO INTO A TRACING OF A HOME USING THESE PROGRAMS. I HAVE THE TRACING BUT IT DOES NOT LET ME INTEGRATE THE VIDEOS INTO IT JUST COLOR. I AM NOT VERY TECH SAVY BUT I WOULD LOVE TO THIS FOR OUR KIDS HERE IN FLORIDA. THEY LOVE THE BATES HAUNT.. I WANT TO DO IT FOR THEM HERE. THANKS FOR ANY HELP YOU CAN LEND ME.

I was experiencing the problem with the solids staying white when I moved the camera around, and realized that the issue was my light. In CS6 it has a falloff setting that is not shown in the video. Once I set the falloff to "none" (making the light cast out infinitely far away instead of casting only a specific distance), the problem went away. Hope that's helpful to someone else out there.

Great tuts Andrew. Thanks!!
