make it easy to add footage into UE 3D scene

it’s super confusing for those who just want to make films with UE to wrap their head around all those media players, textures, composure planes, variables… I’m literally spending 3 days trying to figure it out. tutorials are wacky, each one showing some new crazy confusing way. I’m ready to give up.
it’s not for games, nor for for real-time virtual production. just to drop a keyed piece of footage with alpha channel into the scene, tweak some lights and objects, move a camera, and render it out nicely.
