please forgive me..i'm italian and i don t speak english very well..
btw i love stencyl concept because i'm a child inside my heart and my Youth was surrounded by amiga 500!

i go for question!
is it possible to use a video for background?
i'm a director and sometime i prefer pre production than post production..
i have tons of videos that i wish to use for my game.(i suppose to convert em..and less colours..)

i hope you understand..
Keep Yourself Alive and Viva Freddie Mercury!


Actually I was just looking into this earlier today and yesterday. If you are doing flash, then you would need your video to be a .swf and you would use this extension, and it is all created with I think one block.

If you are using mobile then use this extension, although its just a little harder to do. You will need the video format to be .MP4 for this one though.

Hope this helps!!
