    Stopping Looping

    pittylova
      Hi everybody. I'm extremely new to Fireworks and animation in general. I am having a hard time with my animations continuously looping even if I mark the no loop button in the Frames section. How do I get the image to go through only one full cycle of it's animation properties and then stop?

          Hi. Once you have created your gif, export it as an animated gif then test
          it.

            Export your animation as an 'Animated GIF'

              Thank you all. I did just try to export it as an animated GIF. I did it, and it's saved as animated GIF, but it's still continuing to loop. It's not that big of a deal for this image in particular, but for future reference I'd like to be able to stop them.

                Can you post a link to an example?

                  Where do you see this looping? In FW or in a browser? The No looping
                  setting doesn't work when you play the animation back within FW, It only
                  applies to the browser.

                    Check the export preview window to make sure that looping isn't set
                    differently than in the frames panel.
