I have a 3-5 second animated gif that I imported and added it to the timeline of my comp.
When I play the movie it plays the 3-5 sec gif and continues to the end of the timeline.
I want the gif to continue to loop throughout the timeline. My guess is that I would have to
repeat the file multiple times. Is this the only option?
Is this the only option?
no... please move this to the After effects forum
one of the forum mods will move it for you mate... shouldn't take long
There are a number of ways to loop footage in AE. You can choose how many times to loop from the interpret footage options, you could mess with Time Remapping, you could make a bunch of copies of the layer trimming the end off, etc.
