loading live video into Blender?

Hi. I have searched the forum and Google for tutorials on adding my animations to live video. I came upon this link in one of the topics on the forum:


It says when I want to load video, I go into the background image window and instead of looking for an image you click the Texture drop button and get the uncompressed AVI, but a blank menu comes up.

I tired making a simple animation where a cube flys by the camera. I rendered it as an AVI-JPG and an AVI-RAW. Neither of them showed up. Am I compressing the videos wrong? If not, am I trying to load the live video from the wrong place? Please help. Thanks.


I have not gotten any replies yet :frowning: …please help!


Would this page help?



Yep. I think thats what I need. Thanks!
