Having 1 time looping effect along an endless one in a comp

Postby Jacques101 on 08/13/2016, 7:53 am

Hi,

In a 4 seconds motion, there're a bigger circle and a smaller one in a composition. I want to set the number of repetition of the big circle's animation to 1 time while the smaller circle's animation is looping. I tried to use the time-freeze option but it wasn't what I need as big circle's animation will be repeated after each start of the motion file. I just need the big circle effect being applied once, while the smaller circle effect loops infinitely.

Thanks

Sounds like you should have the animation once on both layers, but use the loopOut expression on the smaller circle's animation.
