Loading Backplate Images

Loading a new image into the background of a scene replaces the old backplate image, if any.

To load backplate images:

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Click Project > Scenes > New Backplate. In the dialog box, browse to an image and click Open.
    • Place background images into the Plates library. Double-click an image in the Plates library to apply the image to the project.
    The image loads into the background of the project and stays in the background regardless of camera movements.
  2. Optionally, in the Palette, on the Scenes tab, click Fit Camera to Backplate to automatically fit the camera to the backplate, while matching the aspect ratio of the active camera to that of the backplate.
