Green Tint on Video

Whenever I try to bring in a video or movie as a texture for the background, the picture always looks very green, and very weird. When I do the same for a simple .jpg image it looks fine, no green just fine. Does anybody know what is wrong?

can you post a picture?

One of the pictures is the final render, the other is what it looks like on screen


Yeah, I’ve had this problem too (here)

I think that blender 2.42 can’t read several different types of files, + you’ll just have to convert them into some other file.

Another solution is to download an older version of blender (2.41 or lower) because oddly it works fine there.

Maybe it’s just a mistake they made in 2.42?

Hope that helps.
