Hi, I'm relatively new to Animate for HTML5 Banner ad production. 

I have a 10 second timeline. My limit for my final banner ad is 30 seconds then it needs to freeze. So, three loops. I've watched a number of tutorials but none seem to cover this that I've found.

 

Is there a good way to control an animation so it doesnt exceed the allotted looping requirement?

 

Thanks!

Put this code at the end of 10 second timeline if (!this.looped) this.looped = 1;if (this.looped++ == 3) this.stop();

There was a fairly similar thread recently about looping an HTML5 animation a fixed number of times.  I'd suggest you have a look at that and look at the example files provided by the Adobe Community Expert who responded (resdesign): https://community.adobe.com/t5/Animate/At-a-loss-How-do-I-get-my-animation-to-loop-a-set-number-of/m...

 

In essence, you need to set a counter in code for the number of required loops then do an if/else statement to check if another loop needs to run (or else stop).
