I started to divided a video editing project into different scenes, as illustrated in the image below. Here the background, i.e. the clouds, is in scene 1 and the text overlay is in scene 2. While working with scene 2, to position the text, I would like to see scene 1 in the background. Is this possible?
Is this the "correct" approach to work with Blender for projects with several text overlays and other visual effects?
A small version of the .blend file without the cloud movie in the background, can be found here. Note that a still image is located in the stock image folder.
Here are some extra info:
The text overlay, i.e. scene 2, is rendered in Blender internal where the shading is set to transparent.
In the Video editor the blend type for the strip is set to alpha over.
Clouds and text shows up when selecting Scene 1, the background, but the text can not be positioned or adjusted from there.
