Support for MP4 Videos to enable Dynamic Maps

Postby zeus » Tue Nov 06, 2018 3:49 pm

This has so far proven to be a very useful tool for my group. One suggestion would be to add support for dynamic maps (MP4 video) like this one https://youtu.be/veq9PZBOV7E. Given this is Unity based it should be technically possible and would certainly add some flare to standard battlemaps. If you search for dynamic maps on Google or Youtube you will see quite a few freely available ones.

This would be pretty cool, but I have to imagine would be very hard on performance (especially on mobile). The way the app needs to break up and compresses map images currently may also be an issue. I wonder how good the map videos would look if they were capped to something like 720p, as that may help, but also may look a bit rough up close.

It's worth looking into though, thanks for the suggestion!
