you mean you want an avi file as background for your movie? press ctrl+f7 (effects window --> compositing tab) and load the avi as background image. should work if you have the avi.p plugin loaded :)

im talking about a avi clip.
not just one image.
I dont want just a background image, i want a avi clip so that my object will look like it was built into the the clip

thanks

hmmm i thought putting an avi file in background will play it, but you could break it down into an image sequence and using the image panel (ctrl+f4 i think) you can load the whole sequence at once and put that in background... you want to try this with a short avi file i guess...

You can load an avi in the background you just tell lightwave when you load it up that it has a start and end and it will show in the background when rendered out.
