How to make a Flipbook start from frame 1 when spawned into a Sequencer animation?

I created a track in the Sequencer animation containing a flipbook asset. I want the flipbook to start playing at frame 1 when spawned in the scene. However the Flipbook seems to be looping constantly in the background, and when spawned in the scene, i can see at playback that it doesn’t start from the beginning.

Is there a way to do so by adding a specific “Render component” track directly into sequencer and make it keyframable in the timeline?
Also, is there a way to make the flipbook play only once and not loop when used in the seqeuncer?

thank you in advance for any help :slight_smile:
