I was thinking about taping like 5 minutes of a city backdrop in digital video and then animate it on Lightwave. Is that Possible? for example, if i wanted to shoot a scenery of a city and then use it as a background in my animation movie, would I be able to just video tape the scenery, then animate it so that it will fit in with the rest of my animation? Thank you for your help.

You can load an image sequence into the background, and animate over it. (anywhere you can use an image in lightwave, you can use a sequence) LightWave has lots of coo features for compositing, like front projection mapping, and the fader alpha control.
