Yeh that's very true. I think there's about 2-3 tutorials on the web covering the subject, and they only go into the basics. I'm in the middle of researching everything i can about the subject of camera mapping in max, i'll be doing an indepth tutorial on the subject very soon. It's amazing how there's such little information about such a powerful technique, wonder why that is? maybe it's a techique that people try to avoid, not sure.

I just noticed the two links you posted above, yep that's two of the only three out there, the thirds about camera mapping a box. So yeh i'm going to create a pretty in depth tutorial i think.

What do you think are the important points to make and demonstrate about the whole process? I think multi cam projection is one point that alot of people ask about.

Cheers again - Dave.

Definitely the multi camera and the use of masks, both for masking between the maps as well as the z-depth maps. Also, don't forget to mention to turn off tiling as hat can really puzzle people.

Good luck.

Yeh the tiling thing was the previous thing that had me puzzled for weeks on end, you can see a post further down where this had me stumped :)

I should take back what i said about the last hurdle; zdepth map, now this is completely new to me, can you give me an explaination of how and when this is used in camera mapping?

Cheers - Dave.

Post a Tiff and I'll check it out.
Could be white fringing which is easy to remove in photoshop.

I think the TIFF would tell us more. Can see the white artifacts on the comp but can't tell by just looking at a JPG.

I'd check out...
Layer/matting/remove white matte.
in photoshop. Also make sure the layer is above a black field and not white or transparent (which seems to be treated as white once dropped down to a TIFF or TGA etc.
