I imported an Alembic animation to Blender from the VR animation app Tvori. How can i time-reverse it? i need it to play as intended but then would like it to play backward, so to create a loop. and then render. is it even possible? i'm a total beginner so i don't know anything about how the Blender timeline works, but coming from video editing it's hard for me to look at the timeline and not even see a clip on it that represent my "animation" and on which i can maybe right click and change settings? i know, i sound very ignorant about all of this which i am.

thank you for any response!

  • $\begingroup$ This should help. It's about looping an .abc cache, but you can make it play once in reverse with the same tools. blender.stackexchange.com/questions/78674/… $\endgroup$ – JtheNinja Jan 24 '19 at 4:49
  • $\begingroup$ thanks! but i have blender 2.8 so that menu is not relevant to my case :/ my "object" is an animation that is made of about 20 different objects, not just one. they came out in the alembic file all separated. and if i click on one and check the Constraint panel, nothing comes up, it just says to "Add Object Constraint". $\endgroup$ – quite the beginner Jan 24 '19 at 5:15
