Can't start flipbook from 1st frame

Hi, everyone

There are few topics on answerhub about this but none with the suitable answer - how can i make flipbook start from frame 1 every time i hit play and get spawned on a level?

Many help needed, much thanks in advance :slight_smile:

If you just have a flipbook inside a level , then you need to select that asset, open up the level blueprint and right click. From there you can reference it by doing the above.

Well, guess no more - here comes the solution :slight_smile: I was trying to get the dynamic material to play it’s embedded stuff from the 1st frame every time i enter the scene. With the Time node connected to it it was quite not possible. So i’ve set up it’s control via BP and scalar parameter:

And thanks everyone for being here with me, you’re a wonderful audience :slight_smile:
