Is there a way to stop an animation after specific frame rather than have it loop continuously? Thanks!

Hey Debbie, so at the moment this feature is not available. However, it isn't a bad idea.


So to confirm what you are suggesting. You would like to be able to disable preview looping? What do you think of an option to select how many frames to play after the active frame?

Yeah, you just scroll to the desired frame and then click the play button, however this only works the first time and then loops.

I like this idea too. I think the ability to play from the selected frame to the end of the animation with no looping would be very useful.


In addition, the ability to define a frame range to play (with or without looping) would also be an excellent feature. For instance, if I have a scene of, say, 60 frames, I could put a marker at frame 21 and a marker at frame 30 and when the play button is pressed, Flipaclip would only play those ten frames - either once through or repeatedly, depending on tne state of the loop button.
