hi,

wondering is it possible to animate the texture something like this?
is there a plugin for that?

that way i can loop the texture, (i think...)

i guess a better headline is "animate UV texture"

if there ain't no easy option i'll go with the node trick,

i needed to loop a uv texture a while back, it was a filmstrip moving form one roll to another. i used a very simple node setup: scalar node > into the u offset of an image node, and enveloped the scalar

if that's what you meant
