UV Animation PLG is an extension to the Material section in the Renderware stream file format. It is part of the Renderware Toolkit and can be used animate a texture in UV-space.


The existence of this section is typically determined by a effect within a Material Effects section, which is also an extension of the Material section. It does not contain any data, but rather the data is stored within a separate Struct section, which contains the names of UV animations that are attached to this material. The maximum number of UV channels is 8 but most often only one animation is found here.

 4b  - DWORD       - channel mask
 32b - CHAR[32]    - Once for each *active* channel within the channel mask (see below).

Where n is the number of animations. To each of the 8 animation slots corresponds a bit in the mask (slot n has bit 1<<n set, counting from 0). If bit n is set, a 32 byte string follows (with n counting up).

A UV animation can animate up to 8 nodes/UV sets.
