I'm doing a smoke simulation right now, and I would love playback to start from my inpoint everytime I hit alt+a instead of running from the current frame.

Is that possible? Looking at bpy.ops.screen.animation_play it doesn't seem so....

Press Alt+A then hit Esc (while mouse in the 3d view) and then press Alt+A again to start from frame one. If this doesn't work you should open once your timeline and move once your mouse at frame one.

    $\begingroup$ good enough.... I used alt+a to stop the animation too, but esc is returning to where you initially started. Thanks! $\endgroup$ – knekke Sep 13 '16 at 12:57

    $\begingroup$ Esc doesn't always return playback to frame 1 rather than to one where you started playing animation the last time. Use Shift+LeftArrow to return to frame 1. $\endgroup$ – Mr Zak Sep 13 '16 at 13:47
