  • This is kinda like the solution we actually just came to! Now trying to tackle how to get the animation to not be at the endframe when the lens is loaded. May have to just enable it on trigger.

  • Hi Zach!

    You can add a script on Initialized to set the animation position when the Lens is loaded:

    //@input Asset.Texture texture

    Then, when you use that script you should have an input field where you can put your texture and have it start on the first frame.


    Can't wait to see the result!
