    Default Is live streaming video to texture possible?

    Dear All,

    I am having trouble using a live video stream as a texture (I have
    been following the Developers Center article "Streaming Video in
    Shockwave 3D")

    I have everything working as shown, but I want to use a live video
    stream from a Flash Communication Server MX as a texture, (instead of a
    previously recorded movie as shown in the example). I have the live
    streaming set up and running fine, but I am unable to use it as a
    texture for two reasons.

    1) If I set my Flash movie (with the video in it) to render "Direct
    To Stage" then the video is visible on the stage, but I am unable to
    capture it to use as a texture.

    2) If I set the Flash movie not to render directly to the stage,
    then the video window remains blank (but the correct area is
    successfully captured and used as a texture).

    I am using the example "doc_connect" Flash movie that comes with
    Communication Server.

    Any help or advice would be much appreciated and I thank you for
    your time in advance.

    Yours faithfully,
    Duncan.

    A fine tutorial ;-)

    Try this:
    * Set the Direct To Stage property to true
    * Wait untill the live video stream has initialised
    * Set the Direct To Stage property to false and start grabbing the image

    'do
