I have imported certain png sequence files as planes for effects. I would like to use the same file in the same scene twice but when I edit any change it is applied to both objects. I imported them both unchecking the option for "overwrite material" but that is not working. I'm using Blender 2.83.

  • $\begingroup$ I'd say you'd have to give each plane a different Material slot. Then texture that slot with the same texture file. If it's a video you can offset it's starting (scene) frame in the new material slot so it starts later than the 1st. That's done in the texture properties for that slot. $\endgroup$

This is me answering my own question months later in case others have the same issue. So according to "Lateasusual": "enter image description hereimage sequences can only load one image at a time - here even though the image is used in 2 places with different frames, the same frame will be shown for both of them

  • so all you need to do is just click the 2 button " ---- Lateasusual
