animation reference

Does anyone know of a way to show a video in the viewport background and have it update as I change the frames. I want to use video clips as reference for creating animations. I"ve been trying to figure out how to do it and no matter what I try nothing seems to work. It’d be really helpful if this is possible.

you could always map a video texture to a plane, im not quite sure if that would work but give it a try

You are probably just missing one step. If you can get the movie to show up, just not advance frames, then you’re almost there.
In the Background Image panel, click “Auto Refresh”.

Schweet! Thanks! I thought I tried that before but I guess I didn’t. Thank you!
