The Control Animation action lets you play, pause, rewind, or jump to a particular frame of an animation. It works on Frame Animations, Flipbooks, and Animations.

Target object

The animation object to control.

Animation command

The command to send to the Target object. Options are:

  • Set Frame - Jump the animation to a specific frame. This option only applies to Frame Animations.
  • Pause - Pause playback of the animation and hold on the current frame.
  • Play - Resume playback of the animation from the current frame.
  • Rewind - Start the current animation over.


If using the Set Frame command, this field specifies the frame to jump to. The animation does not have to be playing for the frame to be selected.
