Set the loop duration

You can configure a portion of an animation timeline to loop once, more than once, or endlessly.

  1. Select the timeline from the drop-down box under Objects and Timeline.
  2. In the objects view, expand the nodes under the object that contains the animation that you want to loop. For example, in the following animation timeline, the X and Y child properties of the rectangle object contain the portions of the animation timeline that can be looped.

  3. Right-click the element or the grey time span bar, and then click Edit Repeat Count.
    The Edit Repeat dialog appears.
  4. Do one of the following:
    • If you want to repeat the animation only a specific number of times, enter the number of times to repeat the animation in the Repeat Count text box. The minimum value for looping is 1.
    • If you want the animation to loop infinitely, click the Set to Forever Forever button button.
  5. Click OK.
    The grey timeline bar extends to reflect the new duration of the animation.
