Camera mapping and UV

Recommended Posts

I have this scene where I do a camera mapping for texturing so that a road will look like the road from a footage.

See the scene here:  https://www.dropbox.com/s/p2rm7tvhdy08aig/scene-5-new-ver2-ground-explosion-forum.c4d?dl=0 (the footage used in this project is here https://www.dropbox.com/s/e8nss9wat60u4gl/footage.zip?dl=0  - an image sequence)

See the Road plane (not Road.front or Road.back)...it has the material Mat. Click on that material and you will see that I Camera Mapping and assigned the Solved Camera to it. I want to lock up that material (that Camera Mapping in fact) to the plane so when the scene starts the camera material will move accordingly and not stay fixed - as it stay if I don't lock it). To lock it up I right-click on the material Mat assigned to Road plane and click on Generate UV Coordinates (I know from a previous project that this should lock up the camera).

But when I do that a part of that Road plane disappears (render a frame to see it...get out of the Solved Camera to see it as well). I am not sure what is the problem here, can you help?
