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

Postby Jacques101 on 08/13/2016, 7:55 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

I think an expression would be the way to go, but that is above my skill level. However, I know that you could get help with such a thing in the tutorials section. Not sure about endless loop, as every comp has a length you set, but you could your circle to rotate as much as you want during the amount of time its set for. :)
