    Import your movie into the Materials Colour Channel /
    Click on the Texture Button and open the Animation Tab /
    Make sure your Start- and End-Frame is shown correctly /
    Otherwise click the Calculate Button…

    Back in the Material select the Editor Tab and check Animate Preview /
    Play your animation…
    (you might have to render your view to see the exact frame…?)

    Should Cinema 4D have difficulty showing realtime preview /
    Use a JPG-Image-Sequence of your movie instead /
    That might ensure faster calculations and better playback…

    Set your Object to the same size as your movie or vice versa /
    Frontal should work…?, but try UVW Mapping…
