Use AVI/MPG as a texture in scene

I am trying to insert a movie as a texture in my scene to simulate a video on a TV in the building lobby.  I know that this can be done in 3ds max and Cinema with relative ease but I have not figured out a way to do it in Lumion. 

I have tried to export the object with the texture from 3ds Max multiple ways but the export does not allow the avi texture to be exported.  I am unsure about Cinema since I dont have we dont own a license.

Thanks for any advice.

That is not possible at the moment.

hi i am a lumion standard user i am doing a walkthrough of farmhouses project spread over 68 acres.... the problem i am facing is that i have to do same thing again and again.... like there are 128 bunglows and i have to put the trees one by one in each of them, i suggest u guys to please add an option of duplication/ copying 3d stuff as it will save a lot of time and make things faster and easier.

Check the section "SELECTING, COPYING, MOVING AND ALIGNING OBJECTS"

(CTRL) + Drag with Left mouse button: Rectangular selection tool for selecting multiple objects.
(CTRL) + (SHIFT) + Drag with Left mouse button: Add new rectangular selection to existing selection.
(ALT) + Move selected object(s): Copy-paste selected object(s) by pressing ALT while dragging one of the selected objects.
Place object mode -> (CTRL) + Left-click: Randomly place 10 copies of the currently active object library model.


Does that help?
