Using a static 2D animation file as background in a 3D project

I am an After Effects veteran just digging into Motion for the first time. My stupid question is...

If I have a 3D project (with a camera), how can I have a 2D animation or video file act as a static background while not being subject to the camera motions? In AfterEffects, I would just be able to toggle that one layer to be 2D.

Sure- just put the video into a seperate group and toggle the 2d layer button- it's right next to the padlock on the timeline view. Or switch the Group type property to 2D.
