I want to import the texture for Earth’s surface from a youtube video into gplates. Can you help me please?
The youtube video would first need to be downloaded and converted to a sequence of images (perhaps google for ways to do this) and then you can import those images into GPlates as a time-dependent raster.
When importing into GPlates, you would need to specify a time for each image (usually at the end of each image filename) and how each image is placed onto the globe/map (georeferencing). If the video is global then the default georeferencing values will work. Once imported you can animate the time slider and the sequence of images will animate similar to playing a video.
