I have a bit of live-action footage that I would like to incorporate into a scene done with Grease Pencil to. Think of a newscaster talking about something and the live-action video is in a smaller window on the screen. Where the newscaster and set are done in Grease Pencil and the video they're talking about is live-action. I've brought the live-action footage into the video sequencer and I will be editing the live-action footage with pauses. The live-action footage will not fill the screen. it will only take up about 25% of one part of the screen.

Is there a way to see the video from the video sequencer in the Grease Pencil view? It would be helpful to be able to see the video sequencer video while working on the character in Grease Pencil.

If not, is there a workflow that would help with this?

Thanks, Jim

I encountered the same problem , in your case I think you still can see the video if you open it under the camera option tab (need to have the camera object selected).

Check Background image -> Add image -> Movie then open your video file.

This way you will only see the video through the camera view (Numpad 0 )

You maybe also need to manually sync it in the VSE to match the background video in the time line, also change the resolution and the frame rate in the Output tab.

If you figure out a better way to do it let us know.
