How to play animated textures once?

Hello,

I have an animated explosion texture, which i want to play once when something explodes, and not over and over again. However by default, animated textures play again and again and don’t stop. So how can you make animated textures play once?

Thanks

How about ending the object after the animation plays once?

Its quite tedious as its quite a fast animation, so it plays the next loop before the object ends.

EDIT: I figured a way around it. I needed to slow down the animation speed in the UV image editor panel and then end it. Hence I can prevent it from showing the next loop.

well, you could use a delay sensor to delete the object with the texture.
