I shot reference footage for a specific animation and loaded it as a texture onto a plane in the scene I am animating. I would like to match the movement of the model with the reference footage I shot, then delete the plane before final render. Problem is, the movie frames don’t show up in the window for me to follow.
Is there a way to see each frame of the reference footage on the plane while in camera view so I can match the moves? I enabled Texface, changed the Draw type to textured, yet the plane remains blank.
Also, if this can be solved, how do I offset the reference footage to begin where the specific motion begins? What I mean is the animation begins with frame one, but I don’t need the reference footage until frame 30 (the begining of the specific movement I video-taped). The reference footage loads to frame one, offsetting the whole thing by 30 frames. I’d like frame one of the reference footage to begin at frame 30 of the animation.
