Hi, I was wondering if there is a simplified way to view a frame of the motion backgrounds without having to open each one off of the DVD only to find it is incredible irrelevant to our application?
TIA!!

From what DVD?

If you are on a Mac running Leopard, you can simply select a clip and press the spacebar to watch it in the finder, without having to open each one.

We are using a PC with XP...these are Quicktime.mov files that came with CLP of Motion Backdrops (it was a data DVD). I have them copied to my hard drive. Even just frame or thumbnail view would help give an idea of what the setting is.

I'm not aware of any Backdrops DVD that is even available through FXhome - where did you purchase the software? I'm fairly certain that this DVD must be third-party.

They are from Tube Tape, sorry the owner purchased the all this new software and it came to me all in a bunch. I was assuming it was all from the same place. Thanks.
