Animatic with video layer

Post by brucealcock » 09 Jun 2021, 23:19

I'm making an animatic for animation to go on top of live action. I need to add a video layer as background, just the same as if I were to work with a sound track (except it's video). Possible? Please help!

Hello, videos are imported from the Open/Import option in the File menu.

Yes, clearly videos are imported that way. My question is different: I am looking to add a video layer below the storyboard drawings while I time them to make an animatic. I see no way to do this in the interface: the only visible option is to add a soundtrack. Since the soundtrack timing is independent of the storyboard frame timing, I am hoping that I can import a video that behaves the same as the soundtrack (continuous, independent timing) WITHIN an animatic. Possible?

Not now, but this seems to be an interesting feature request. "Link reference video" would be a good term.
