Hi Kzerphii,
	I don't think that there is. You can animate the mesh in an animation if
you pre-animate a series of meshes and then include them one at a time during
the rendering. IIRC as I did not use the animation feature of Moray very much,
try using the include plugin and call the meshes with something like;

#include concat("E:\\Graphics\\Scenes
\\My_mesh_",str(mod(frame_number,89),-4,0),".inc")

PS the "My_mesh_",str(mod(frame_number,89),-4,0),".inc")" includes a mesh
numbered 0 to 89.inc in a cyclic fashion. Like My_mesh_0.inc
