I'm trying to do some scenes which use a mixture of 3D backgrounds with 2D animated characters.The best way I've figured this out so far is to use a plane with an image sequence of pngs which hold the frames.
The problem with this method is Blender seams to only load image sequences based on image numbering. If I wanted to do a sequence which loops say, frames 0-5, then repeats 4-0 for the 'return' of the animation, I would have to load frames doubled up.
Is there a way, maybe with a script, to change the sequence order? I can see it as a useful plugin but my python skills are pretty much non existent.
