    Carrara already can use animated textures and backgrounds, no plugin needed!
    just open an avi, mov or sequenced image files (eg jpg, it will put up an open using window where you can choose sequenced jpg by clicking little arrow)
    in the texture room or scene backdrop
    you will have a start/finish slider you can position along the timeline under the texture, you can in the timeline keyframe start at beginning, finish at end and then click on the tweener and choose oscillate to make it loop a chosen number of times.

    Wendy is quite correct about loading pre-animated textures, but you can also animate procedural textures in Carrara directly. Set an initial texture, then move forward in the timeline and change some texture parameters - and it is done!

    you can animate just about anything in Carrara if you wish!
    vertex animation (changing the shape of a model) requires selecting all or some mesh, creating a morph target, editing and validating it but that even can be done.
    only thing I have not been able to animate that I wish I could is brushing/restyling of hair and the replicators as in quantity and distribution.
