The script should still work with the new version, if it doesn't let me know. Here is another little test video I did with two animated textures, a hdri and a movie, running at the same time. The animation is controlled with an Alembic file.

Many thanks mr. Grimm, you just saved my life. Well, figuratively speaking at least.

Perhaps this will help someone though:

I have a 2500 frame animation and two separate texture sequences, each only 150 frames long, one starts at 400 and finishes at 550 and the other one at 1300 and then finishes at 1450.

So obviously this was an issue as the script by default just starts at frame 0 of the animation itself + annoys with "missing rgb for frame xxxx" for the other 2350 frames.

So I just populated the rest of the frames with either the first or the last frame of the texture animation (so that I had 2500 frames total) and used batch renamer to accurately place the texture sequence with the rest of the frames where it belonged (say, the actual 150 frame texture sequence would start at frame 400, whereas previous 399 frames would be just the same texture from the sequence, the very first one - vice versa on the other end to 2500).

Hope this helps someone.

Any word from OTOY if this can be checked/polished/vetted and added to the next release?

Thanks guys, I had plans on upgrading the script to allow you to choose when to start the animation, etc. Thomas (or maybe Roeland) did say that they will have animated textures in 3.0 so I haven't updated the script.

I can't see the embedded vimeo videos anymore, did something change on the site?

We will support animated textures natively in version 3, i.e. we don't plan to improve this script graph or include it in Octane.
