Animation Support

...

On

Enable reading a sequence of files.

Sequence Start

The start frame of the .abc file sequence. 
For example, if your sequence on disk goes from name1001.abc to name 1100.abc, you can pick the files from 1050 to 1080  by entering these values as the Sequence Start and the Sequence End respectively.

Sequence End
The end frame of the .abc file sequence.
Animation Start

The timeline's frame at which the .abc sequence starts to be used.

Animation End

The timeline's frame at which the .abc sequence ends to be used.
If there are not enough files in the sequence to cover the Animation Start-End range, the sequence can be repeated, either from its start or in ping-pong mode.

Replay Speed

Sets the playback speed of the procedural's animation.

Loop Animation
When on, if the animation range exceeds the sequence range, the sequence is looped.
Extend Range
If on, the first and last .abc file of the sequence is used before and after the Animation start and end frame respectively. Else, for those frames, nothing gets rendered. 
 
Ping-Pong Replay
When on, if the animation range exceeds the sequence range, the sequence is read forward, then in reverse, then forward again and so on.

Placeholder

Changes the size of the bounding box representation in the viewport.
