Once you've practiced a few of the the tutorials, you'll want to start work on a real project of your own. Photo backgrounds are key to planning and visualizing projects in Filmmaker Live.
Every location you want for shooting is unique. Photo import and Building sets from photos give you the tools you need to build quick representations of whatever locations you require (you can still work out character blocking and complex 3d camera moves, even when the background scenery for your shots is made from an imported still photo).
Many of our tutorials take place in more completely modeled 3d environments to help you understand the camera motion tools and to show where this product is headed, but even as we work to grow our 3d model library we expect that most "real" projects will continue to focus on photo background locations.
