I am a novice to special fx editing and need some assistance with adding a background plate to a chromakey composite. I was able to do the chromakey and now need to add background footage to another layer to finish the effect. I have tried using the file menu to add another movie, but with no success. Thanks for any help with this.

Go to import media, then choose the file you want. Click the media tab, and drag in the video you just imported. there you go smile
