ok so struggling to get this working. I can get an animated sprite to work which is the plane with the yellow box in on the left. When pressing play the animated sprite plays.

The plane on the right is a button. It switches sprites out but it will not play the animated sprite just a static one?

any ideas?


If you want an animated sprite on a UI element, unfortunately, you will have to manually change the frame on UI element

See this thread for more details: Animated sprites in UI


ok thank you… on a side note, the tick box ‘Loop’… under the sprite animation clip if unticked the sprite should only play once? seems to just keep looping sadly…

thanks you

You will have to adapt the script in the other thread to only loop once
