Also, you may need to make sure that the DVView plugin is also in the plugins list. I had problems ith DV avi's without it loaded.

you need to export your avi into sequential tif or bmp files
then from lightwave import the sequence in.

on a mac you just set your bkgd image to a quicktime movie and it works.

if you are bringing in a sequence, make sure that you tell LW that it's an image sequence..

ok I have done that and all I get is a ton of images and it will only let me load one image. So how do you make all of those a image sequence? :confused:
thanks

P.S I used VT to export the AVI into tiff files

you loaded the images as image sequence from the image editor in lw?

and then in scene editor, composite, set the background to sequence

then in display, d key, down below set the view to see background image.

when you are at camera view, 6 key, you should see your sequence when you scroll through the frames.

Don't need to export avi into tif files. Mov or Avi can load in the background Image.

Black Fire- You can load your avi or mov in the background, but you need to load your avi or mov in the image editor first and then load it in the compositing panel. Your avi will show in the background.
