- Adding a property is a case of adding 1 definition in the code.
- How easy would it be to load and position an image in the background?
isn't that just as hard?
- if you setup the plane method, you can set the material to not-render


ps. I know I shouldn't use this as an argument, but most of the tutorials
I've seen for setting up
    a rotoscope setup for other software packages, use the plane method too
I think.....
