View Full Version : How do I set an image sequence as the background in my Camera viewport?

:help: Hello,

I am having a LOT of difficulty putting an image sequence as the background in my camera view in Lightwave 9.0.

I have gone into Image Editor, imported my image sequence, set the frames where it starts and finishes.

Then I went into Preferences > Display options and set the Camera View Background to Background Image.

Alas, no background image in my camera viewport.
Can anyone please tell me what I'm missing !

You need to go into the Compositing panel and set your backdrop to the sequence you've chosen. Hit Ctrl F7.

I have spent ages trying to figure that out. Thanks for such swift response, that was around 5 minutes!

Thanks again buddy!
