    While the heading of this post is “import video as scene background”, and you can’t just grab any video file to do so, you can accomplish the requests of both comments in Character Animator now. By importing a PNG sequence. Once you’ve turned the video background you want into a PNG sequence, using an encoder/transcoder like Adobe Media Encoder, then, in Character Animator, go to:

    File→Import Cycle→
    (browse to PNG folder and click on first image of your PNG sequence)
    →Import

    You will create a puppet in your Project panel with the name of the sequence folder. Open this puppet in the Puppet panel (Rig workspace) and apply the Cycle Layers behavior to the root puppet layer. In the Properties panel, under ‘Behaviors’, you’ll see your Cycle Layers behavior and an item that says “Start” with a corresponding drop down menu that defaults to “Immediately”. Click on the drop down…

    Can we get it to import like mp4's and formats other than PNG sequence? Seems like a hassle to either convert to png sequence or constantly go back and forth between Premiere Pro and Character Animator for things that require precise timing.
