movies as images

first off i am trying to use a movie as a image and managed to load a.mp4 file but having trouble animating it. every time i click animate, it starts from the last frame and i can’t get it to the begining. what are all the movie formats blender recognises.

Look in F10 in the Format tab and it will also depend on what codecs you have on your HD.

I assume from the above that you’re not using a sequence of images but a movie file like avi. In the Image tab in F6 click the Movie button and then set the options in the Anim and Movie tab.

it starts from the last frame

Make sure your Start Frame and Len are set correctly.
