Importing Video for Animation?

I have checked around a little, but I may have missed it either in the forums or Krita itself.

I know that users can import animation frames into a project, but what about video? I use iPad Procreate’s animation for portability to start projects, and I’d like to be able to bring those over to Krita, since it has more tools for finishing something. Procreate can export a couple types of files for any animation rendered, but I want to know if Krita supports anything video-wise, apart from just frames.

Hello and welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

There’s a plugin called Animator Video Reference which will import the frames of an .mp4 file.
This was developed by Scott Petrovic - @scottyp and can be downloaded from
Instructions/explanations and a url to a YouTube video are included in the download.

That’s exactly what I was looking for. I’ll be sure to give him my thanks once I’ve installed it. Thank you to you, as well!
