MovieScreen node type has been superseded

Prior to Visionary Render 2.0, Movie playback was achieved by creating a Movie node, and then referencing it using a MovieScreen which was attached to an Assembly somewhere in the scene. The ability to configure the appearance of Movies was limited by this.

In Visionary Render 2.0 and above, it is now possible to play back movies on any surface by applying the Movie node directly to a material texture map.

In order to cleanly migrate older scenes that made use of MovieScreens we have constructed a similar looking "rig" using some Plane geometry with a material, and Visionary Render will automatically upgrade any MovieScreens in-place in order to retain the original display behaviour.
