Hello, I was following some tutorials on setting a video in the background of my scene but I could never get the video to play. I would render it out and I could see it going through each frame but after that all I would get is the first frame. I tried over and over again… Spent hours trying to figure out what was wrong… so I gave up for a while and practiced setting up a fly thru where the camera follows an object… Played around and saved the file… the next day I continued working with the camera and the animation with that video in the background… then all of a sudden the video started playing along with the fly-over animation.
Then the next morning I started a new one to see if it would work again… and what I noticed was when I clicked either material or texture it didn’t have all the options so I reloaded Blender over and over again and started several new sessions and it didn’t work… So I restarted the computer and it was back to normal.
So I think I have some corrupted files… I’m not sure if I should keep working with it and restarted the computer until it works properly or Is it possible to restore 2.74… not the setting… but the program itself or should I upgrade to 2.76?
If I upgrade to the latest is it possible I could have issues loading items made and done in 2.74?
Is it possible to have both 2.74 and 2.76?.. I just don’t want any more problems as it has taking me forever to learn Blender one day a week and set up the scene I want to use.
Greatly appreciate any advice you may have
