Hi, I was able to play the video on top of the plane in full screen, by following the tutorial BUT:
Quality is really bad, my video is 4K, H264 and after adding it to the plane and play it with the sequencer I got:
- Screen Tearing (when action is fast in the video)
- A few banding (lines)
- Different color tones… and this is the more obvious problem, like orange colors looking yellow, gray looks white, white look like… shinny
- there is pixelation (squares on dark areas)
- The overall quality is like an extended 640p video… when in fact it is 4K and has high quality.
If I play it from my PC folder by just making double click, using VLC or any video player… it has none of the above; so I thought that all the problems might come from my UE4 lights in the scene, I tested deleting all my lights, Skylight, Directional Light, LightMass and finally I removed my SkySphere, nothing worked, I also tried to uncheck my light channels from the image plane, my material quality is Epic, still not working, 100% cero impact; now I think the problem might come from the material settings, because If I play it in the “media player” it looks good, and I did check “two sided”, choose unlit like in the tutorial, for now… I’m able to play a poor quality version of my 4K video in UE, but… that’s still poor quality,
I can’t show this to an art director, I’ll be ashamed, fired LOL
Is there anything else I can do in the UE4 settings, or in the material to be able to play my video like any video player will? my scene is empty, I was just starting the cinematic in an empty scene, no possibility of other assets affecting it; like I said, it is cool to be able to play it full screen, not cool to watch it looking bad (and it took months to produce and render) at this point I think I’m not going to be able to sync the VFX and music in UE4 as I wanted, I’ll add them in a video editor, but the video still looks weird, any possibility to somehow play it straight from a folder with the original quality and when it finishes it continues with the sequence? that would be a total fix.
