Trouble with compositing video footage


I’m having trouble importing video footage for my backround. I have set the display options to Backround Image, and then I go into the backdrop settings and select the video.

After I do this…nothing happens. The backround doesn’t change. I am able to chnage teh backround colour, but I am looking to change the whole backround to video footage right now. What am I doing wrong?


What format/codec is the video footage using?

I seem to recall that you cannot use MPEGs or DivX files. But I could be wrong.


Well the video is .avi . I remember having it work a while back…but now that I’m trying it again it’s gone all screwy. Maybe it’s just my computer acting up??
