Is it possible to animate texture position? I'm trying to animate a surface that's being painted on with a roller. The surface before the roller is one dull color and the surface after the roller is a bright color and "wet looking". I thought I could create both textures on the same photoshop file and import it into Strata. I could then animate the position of the texture as the roller is going over the surface.

Yes you can animate a Texture's position.

Brian,

Thanks again for the info. But unfortunately, it doesn't work. Because when the texture is moving in the animation, we actually see it moving, which is not good. I need another way to animate the roller applying paint. So if you have any idea how this could be done, let me know. If anyone else wants to rack their brains, ideas are welcome.

What about using your Photoshop file(s) to create an animation of the texture change then apply that as an animated texture rather than trying to animate the texture's position.
