Can you show how you did this because I believe this is not possible in Twinmotion 2019. I tried it but it doesn't recognize any video format...

ok.....
1.pick a video format you prefer i.e *.mp4
2.drop it in your Document > user library..
3. Now in your Twinmotion 2k19v2...
4.From your material color...
5.Click more...Texture, open, navigate to Document > user library
6.In the UserLibrary, Type your *.mp4 in the File name, automatically your file will comes up,just click open
7.Drop it on your mesh, you will see it Displaying

i hope this help...feed back please

Hi,
Thanks but I think this is Windows only then. I can't even select the texture (or type it in). The mp4 is greyed out.

So developers, if it is possible allow this for Mac users as well!!

Hi, I am not aware about solution given here, not working for me also.

But it is possible by adding video texture in the modeling software (3D max, Cinema, Blender etc.) before export to TM. If Your modeling software can do video texture, then just add video texture there - - - > export with textures embeded to .fbx file and it will play automatically after import to TM.
Only downside is that video is playing faster in TM - so you should slow it down to something between 10 to 20% of original speed before texture/export procedure.

A have made a short clip about it, that it is possible...see here:

Hope it hepls

Dear all,

Due to a technical limit, Twinmotion 2019 doesn't support video textures.
Adding video texture directly in the modeling software, as Martin showed above, or simply add a video as a texture to a surface, is indeed a trick. However, in the export, the video will be accelerated.
