Hopefully this GIF will be able to show you how to achieve this.Basically:- Copy all the frames from the main timeline by selecting the frames, right-clicking them and choosing Copy Frames;- Insert a new symbol: Insert > New Symbol... (Ctrl/Cmd + F8);- Inside of this newly created symbol, paste the copied frames by right-clicking and choosing Paste Frames;- Drag and a drop a instance from this symbol from the Library to the stage;- Align this new instance;- Go to File > Export > Export Video...;...

Hi.

- Go to File > Export > Export Video...;

- Under Stop exporting, select After time elapsed;

- Type 10.

This will make Animate CC record your animation during 10 seconds on export.

I hope this helps.

Regards,

JC

Doesn't work. It only loops once and gets stuck on the last frame for the remaining 9.8 seconds

Oh sorry.

I forgot to tell that you're gonna have to place your entire animation inside of a single Movie Clip instance.

Your main timeline should contain only one frame with this Movie Clip instance in it.

JC, thank you for the explanation. Does it work also for a multi-layer animation loop? Mine, created in AA 21, has a few layers, including sound, and I cannot make it work.

Thank you,

Mariana
