Animated Texture Conundrum
show user profile  capone_adam
Goal = To place a 6 frame animation (blast) on a plane behind a character. Seems to be no simple way of doing this, all I can think of are these 2 messy methods...

1) 6 planes each with different frame. Animated them to go up and down in and out of view in order
2) Mix map within Mix map with Mix map system then switch each of the 6 maps to 100% in succession

Really I want to just be able to slap this animation onto a place like you can with non alpha based animations

just add the images into the bitmap map as an 'image sequence' no?

I try dragging a PNG into a diffuse slot but it doesn't give me a option to load it as an image sequence

Cool thanks but still not quite the result I was looking for. I want the animation to appear from frames 50-55, you can enter this in the option box but then it doesn't animate at all. If I leave the default it DOES animation but for the duration of the movie. So for now I'm doing that and autokeying the plane to come into view and out of view between 50 and 55.

Anyway that's much better than what I was doing than before so thanks!
