Animated Sprite as an UI element?

I have been searching this forum and came across a lot of old posts.

If I’m correct you can use animated sprites but you have to put them on a Plane model.
It is not working on a UI Image element. So then my question is how can I add a 3d model as a child of a 2d screen element? If this is not possible then what would be the solution?

In my project I want Pulsing circles as a UI element where you can click on.

Unfortunately, not supported in the engine but can work with some extra code:

Check this link.

You can just use this material in it to render on UI. But I am not sure about it as I didn’t need to try it yet. But I think it is possible to apply it on a 2d screen.

You can use animated sprite on any model. Not just Plane.
