Animating Textures

10.  Give the texture channel a unique name
  •  Properties menu >> Texture >> Name
Note:
  • I am naming it Candle_Flame
11.   Texture Type:  Image or Movie
  • Properties menu >> Texture >> Type >> Image or Movie
12.  Load an animated texture
  • Properties menu >> Texture  >> Image >> Open
Note:
  • I'm using an animated texture named Animate_CandleFlame.png
Note:
  • An animated texture is a series of time lapse frames that have been joined together into one image.
     
  • Animate_CandleFlame.PNG has 10 time lapse frames.  2 Rows.  5 Columns.  If I'd wanted I could have had more rows and/or columns.  Or less.
