Run animation only during day time

I have an animation that I only want to run during the daytime hours. I can change the opacity but that doesn’t stop the movement. Any help please?

You will probably have to use two layers. One with the animation and another one without it set to the correct times.

I guess you are talking about .gif animation.

Move it out of range by X or Y coordinate.

X position:

During the daytime the X coordinate will be 160 (or whatever you want), after the sunset X coordinate will be 2000 (out of screen and not visible).

If you want to show animation at night use the opposite:

@mmoore410 . I will be interested to see how you have got a Tag to work in the opacity Box of a Sequence if that is what you have done . If a Sequence is running on a loop from Sync or Wake trigger it will run forever . Other wise it will run only once . Things are changing on Facer as we speak but I tested that one Yesterday and it still will not accept any maths .
All you can do is show a single frame of you animation when you don’t want it running . By the Method @masterboyhr outlined .

But it does work when running, all frames.
Take a look at this one, three animations are changing depending on the heartrate (blue, green, red).

X position is with conditions, one of them:

Yes it works, I have a sailboat and an airplane pulling a banner going across the screen. They are only visible from 8 am to 5 pm
