Video loops & scene changes

I have a background video which loops while magic visuals are blended with it using the Blend module. I want to have other elements change in a number of scenes but keep the background video continuously playing without restarting with every scene change. Is this possible?

Yes, the best solution is to put your VideoFile module inside its own scene, and then use that as a scene module in your other scenes. https://magicmusicvisuals.com/downloads/Magic_UsersGuide.html#SceneModules

It will keep your place in the video, especially if you uncheck the Scene Start parameter, and it will also be more efficient because you're only loading the video once in your project.

That's great. I use scene modules all the time but had never thought of using them in this instance.

Thanks Eric.
