Can I use "video texture" with other material maps like normal or specular?

As my coding knowledge is still somewhat new, I primarily use the threejs editor

So my question is this. Is the “video texture” essentially a video being feed into the color map? And if this is the case, does that mean a video could also be used for other maps, like specular, or normal for example?

Thanks in advanced!

In general, you can apply a video texture to any texture property. Technically it makes mostly sense to use it as a diffuse texture since you would need to prepare a special video for all other use cases. Especially for non-color textures like normal maps.

Thank you! That’s what I was hoping to hear :slight_smile:
