    loop keeping second animation on hold

    Level 7
      hello every one

      i have an animation loop which triggers another animation. The problem is
      the loop is on hold while the animation it triggered is completed.

      I wish some one could give me some examples on how loops could trigger other
      animations.
      Swapping the loop for an exitframe is not an option it appears.

      thanks in advance

          do you mean a 'repeat' loop??

          usually 'repeat' loops in lingo or 'for' loops in other scripting languages run until completed;

          so if you have an infinite 'repeat' loop, you will effectively stop your movie;

          otherwise consider exitframe or stepframe routines;

            yeah I meant a repeat loop.

            could u show me how i could use flags or switches to overcome the problem.
            I need to trigger an animation when ever a condition is met in the repeat
            loop.
            thank you
