I have a 200 frame long animation.

On frame 150 I want to do some camera matching to some background live footage I will be compositing at a later point.

How do I load the footage into the background BUT tell it not to start playing until it hits frame 150?

I can get it in but it plays at frame zero, but I dont want to see it play till 150 - does that make sense?

There is an option in Window>Backdrop Options>Compositing that says synchronize Image to frame, which seems like the answer but the drop down list only gives me the option of 1 or zero! I want 150!

please help if you can

thanks

You can go to the image editor and set it there. At the botom of the panel are sliders to set the in and out points. :)
