I started a video project prior to purchasing CTA 3 today.
I already had created / purchased quite a few images (.png format, I do not own Photoshop).
Is there a way to import my images? (It is basically a really long road with lots of buildings, and several other scenes I have already created the backgrounds for.
Thanks, I click the + sign at the bottom of the Content Manager and a browse dialog appears, but when I click on what I select it opens in my default editor for .png files - Paint.Net
Thanks for any information.

I figured it out. There may be other ways to do this, but basically size Windows Explorer and CTA side by side and drag and drop the file into the rectangle of the Camera View.

After I closed Windows Explorer and maximized CTA again, the background was even perfectly sized to the Camera View.

Sorry to answer my own question, feel free to post other ways of doing it as I am only 48 hours into learning this, so I would like to know what other methods are there for importing content.

I would suggest that you play around with CTA3 first and get the basic idea of how CTA3 works.
Thanks.

I have already done that in 3 tutorials, now I have to start making my video. But thanks for your suggestion.

I am stubborn and like to learn by doing.
