Thread: prevent animated lockscreen .gif from looping

    Default prevent animated lockscreen .gif from looping
    I just tested an animated lockscreen, found on this site.

    I would like to make my own .gif, and have it only play one time without looping or repeating on the lockscreen, anyone familiar with html, etc.? thank you so much.

    yes I have researched this, and will continue to do so.

    Thanks again.

    For what i know you have to handle single pngs withjavascript to stop looping.

    gifs are loop animations... never stopping

    Have you ever created a GIF before? Each frame has its own duration value, going anywhere from a fraction of a second to infinity. In other words, it's quite possible to create a GIF that only plays once. If you have Adobe Imageready, it works great, or maybe you can find a demo of it to do what you need.

    EDIT: I made an example GIF using After Effects. It should count to 5 and stop, no looping.

    Not quite true, you can make gif animations that only run once, twice, three times, ..... or forever.
    Animation Shop Pro 3 (part of Paint Shop Pro 7) does that. Very very old software, but still brilliant.
    You can not only set how often the full animation should run, but also how long each frame should be displayed.
