Hey! I was importing a scene one time and I saw “Video (*.avi, *.mp4)” in the supported files menu. Is it actually possible to import videos into a project?
Reading what you said I’ve tried to load an .avi video (720x576 selecting the “any files” option into the Import section) and I can play it but very laggy and a nightmare to use it. I’ll try to recode the video to have a tiny version to see if I could use synfig to create a svg subtitle (like if I was working with an .ass at aegisub).
I tried to load also MKV and MP4, but it says that is not supported.
This may help you a bit
Importing videos doesn’t work for me. It just shows up in the layers panel and nothing comes up in the canvas.
