Hello all,

 

I am trying to create a slideshow in LR but despite I tick the box "repeat", my slideshow does not  loop, it stops after the last image ...

 

Could you help me, please ?

 

Thanks.

Bonjour à tous,

 

J'essaie de faire un diaporama dans LR.

Mais j'ai beau cocher la case "repeat", il ne boucle pas et s'arrête à la dernière image ...

Quelqu'un connait-il la solution, svp ?

 

Merci,

Cordialement

In my experience also- the 'Repeat' option will only work when Lightroom plays the slideshow. A 'Repeat' or 'Loop' command is not embedded in the exported video file. You need to set your Video Player options to 'Loop' the video (if available). Example- VLC Media Player has a 'Loop' option:

Hi there,

 

Sorry that your slideshow in Lightroom Classic does not repeats and get stuck at the last image. 

 

Which version of Lightroom are you using and what is your OS? Does the problem occurs with all the slideshows you're trying to work with? Are you able to export the slideshow and does it repeats itself in the video?

 

Would you mind restoring Lightroom Classic app preferences to default and let us know if the issue still persists? Please refer this article for step by step instructions:

Hi Akash,

 

Thanks for answering.

 

I restored LR preferences as described in your link and exported my diaporama again, but the result is the same : it still does not loop ...

 

- I use LR 9.2 with Windows.
- it does the same with all 3 diaporamas I created
- it is when I read the diaporama in the PDF player that it does not repeat, when I read the diaporama in LR it does loop.

 

Regards.

Thank you WobertC.

And what about a .PDF diaporama ?

Is it possible to have a PDF diaporama looping in the player ?

I do not use Adobe Reader to suggest an answer, but Googly found this-

 

Adobe Reader – How to loop PDF as a presentation
  1. With Adobe Reader open, select the 'Edit' menu then 'Preferences'
  2. Under the left hand menu select 'Full Screen'
  3. To loop the presentation place a tick next to 'Loop after last page'
  4. To progress through each page automatically place a tick next to 'Advance every' (and optionally set a different amount in seconds)
