(SOLVED, see below)
I need to animate Digital numbers on a Digital Gauge (Pressure Transmitter).
Normally, I could use a video as a texture for this, but I need to have the numbers display actual DATA at the correct time for this example.
UV Map Images for the numbers.
The numbers will change every second (Every 30 frames at 30 FPS). I only need to do 5 different numbers.
It would be nice if there were “Texture Keys”.
Any help is appreciated.

My only solution is to animate the scenes 5 different times with a different digital number, and then use a video editor to splice it together.
Or I could have duplicate objects, with different textures (Digital Numbers) and swap the object instantly using Keys.
Lastly, I could make an actual video (as a texture) of just digital numbers and try to time it exactly one frame at a time for the Blender Animation, but I don’t have a video editor that will work like that anymore. Seems like a lot of effort for a short clip too.
