Is there any way to make an imported video play just once instead of continually looping.
I have some good transparent AVI explosions that I wish to animate via backdrop object properties - animate - image.

However when I switch to the video from "none" it loops. This is making it very difficult to synchronise. Is there any way to make a video play just once?

The only way I know (that I have used) is to add a long blank filler to the video, via your video editor.

Thanks, was hoping to avoid that. Oh well, back to the grindstone.

Yes, at the moment I agree that your video editor of choice is the answer.
You could also export one Muvizu clip with the explosion backdrop included and the same clip but with no explosion backdrop and then cut between the two clips at the appropriate moments

I need to blow up a helicopter in mid flight. I have the rocket launcher, I have the rocket, I have the helicopter. As usual it's the finishing touch that's the hardest.

Workaround it!
Show everything you describe up to the point of impact then cut to a couple of characters looking skyward and scared and use animated lights to show the sudden brightness of the explosion on the characters. You could then have them running out of shot as large pieces of the helicopter suddenly land where the stood.

Thanks Dreeko, I value your advice. Only one character so that's not too hard, after that we move on to him driving through a city being destroyed with rubble collapsing all around so the helicopter bit's probably the easiest .
