    Can we import videos into the game to make cutscenes??

    I searched for instructions on how to create cutscenes, but they are all controlling, coding the objects, which is kinda limited to the cutscenes. So is there any way to import videos into the game to create cutscenes on GM2? If so, it would be fun :33 Thanks

    For a Point and Click game project. Aside from character skeletal animation, Is Spine also suitable for creating :30+ second cut scenes? Cutscenes won't be too detailed.
