Question Maya and video

I've been reviewing several threads about video and Maya Live. I'm curious, is Maya Live used to bring video into Maya. I just want to know how to have a plane surface and layer a video onto it.

Maya Live is a piece of matchmoving software that comes free with Maya Unlimited. You use it to get a camera track from a video clip that you want to integrate 3D elements with. What exactly do you mean by 'have a plane surface and layer a video onto it'??

When in!

I think he means attach video onto a plane instead of a non-animate texture.

I know most people use Adobe AfterEffects for that... but I'm a newb.
