Question about still pictures

Our team was brainstorming (a little bit late =p) about the animation, and we’ve got a question:

Can we use still/real world images inside our animation?

We didn’t find anything in the rules saying its “forbidden”. We just want to use some seconds with real world images but we aren’t sure its really permitted.

If you know its permitted, please tell us =)

And dont flame my english, we’re from Brazil =P

Yes you can use still pictures, but of course most of your entry should be done with 3ds Max.

And please don’t use copyrighted images without the owner’s written permission.

Good luck!

For sure not =) We are going to use our own photographed images for like 3 or 4 secs ^^

Thank you for the answer =)
