img strip

how to use an image strip to spawn from object?

& can this be animated gif.

What do you mean with “image strip”, is that animated texture ? And gifs dont work in blender.

Like an image sequence, something that’s around 100 frames in length.

So basically a plane mesh with a video playing

There are several options:

A) the build in animated texture (see UV-Editor). It is fine for looping animations without any control (lie a rotating coin).
B) manipulating the UV-Mesh via Python (look for UV scroll)
C) manipulating the texture via VideoTexture module.
D) replacing the mesh with other meshes. - You do not want that for 100 frames
E) adding/ending (=replacing) objects. - You do not want that for 100 frames
