Hi, I have recently been using video in director 3d utilsing code modified from a tutorial hosted here @ adobe:
I have found the best results come from embeding your movie as a .swf in the miaw .dir. In addition tom higgins did a little on using video in shockwave 3d:
If you dont want to go down the video path you may be able to use the undocumented nextcamera call to stack your backdrops. Not sure tho but here is a ref just in case:
hope this is of some help, pop

This is not the case. You can layer backdrops in just the same way that you can layer overlays. If you first create a large backdrop, then create your small secondary backdrop, the second backdrop will be visible over the first.
To change the image of the second backdrop, simply assign a new image to the texture that the backdrop is using. Or for for better execution speed, create separate textures for each image of your animation at startup, then just assign the backdrop's texture property directly.
hope this helps!
