Error coming while rendering image sequence texture with arnold on cinema 4d?

I want to use video texture for my object with animated video.

So I added Image node and added 1st frame in image then go to Animation tab and try to adjust start and end frame but when I do that error is comming. even just by changing end frame error come so preview also gone to black. see attached Screen-Shot for error.

Does game_000.jpg exist? If not and your first frame is game_001.jpg, then you should set the Movie Start Frame to 1.

Does the render fail as well or just the preview?

Hey, Thanks for the reply.


But even when we have image sequence start with game_000.jpg and end with game-005.jpg with setting of movie start frame 0 and end frame 5 also tried with image sequence start with game_001.jpg and end with game-006.jpg with setting of movie start frame 1 and end frame 6...


And when I change movie start and end frame preview is going to fail and black preview is coming and render is also fail with above as error.


If have any solution, please suggest.

Do you use the latest plugin (C4DtoA 4.6.2)? Are the textures located in the tex folder? Does it help if you add the folder, where the textures are located, to the search path in the render settings (System tab)?

Also, what if you specify the filename in the image shader like this: game_###.jpg?
