Importing File Sequence in Mathematica

Hello World;

I have been trying to make an animation for my research. I have a bunch of prototype output files so called
output1.txt        
output2.txt
output3.txt
output4.txt
...etc

When I feed those files one at a time, I get stay images. What I would like to do is feed all the files
in order in every 0.5 seconds, so I will have 2 frames per second but I cannot figure out how to
update the file sequences in mathematica.This is what I have so far and I am looking for the coding
to update the files automatically.
Graphics3D[<< output1.txt]
Graphics3D[<< output2.txt]
Graphics3D[<< output3.txt]
Graphics3D[<< output4.txt]
If you have any ideas, please let me know. Thank You.

I think that the simplest approach to a problem like this would be to bring all the images into Mathematica at once, then animate them using ListAnimate:

ListAnimate has an AnimationRate option which lets you control the frame rate.

If you really must bring in the files one at a time like that, you could probably make it work using RunScheduledTask:

I just listed all the input files using
ListAnimate[{input.txt,input1.txt,.....}]
Thank you very much Karl.
