The easiest way to insert a Motion Background from the Timeline is to Export/Share that desired portion as say a DV-AVI for an SD Project.
This can be done easily two ways:
- You can limit the Export/Share with the WAB (Work Area Bar), and uncheck the Export Audio if you only want the Video. Then, just choose Add to Project, and drag that resultant DV-AVI from the Project Panel to the Menu.
- You can do a Save_As for your Project (leaving your original Project untouched), and then Delete all extra material from the Timeline. Do the Export/Share. Close that Project and then Open your original. Import that resultant AV file, and drag that to the Menu.
I like the first, as it saves a step, or two.
Here is a look at the WAB:
