Maybe this will help you :thinking: :innocent:

that is the thread I followed!! but when I preview it isn’t looping :sob:

You might have more frames than the template itself maybe

i even watched her videos too!!! thanks for responding!! will give an update if i get through with it

It’s not looping because you didn’t change the opacity of the odd number overlays like WALK1, WALK3 etc, to 1. It just remains as 0.
Vice versa, the even number overlays like WALK0, WALK2 etc, to 0. It just remains as 1.
You need to make sure that all the overlays need to repeat the change of opacity.

There’s a pattern to it. Break the code down and you’ll see it. This should work:
&overlay WALK0 opacity 1 in 0.1 THEN overlay WALK16 opacity 0 in 0 THEN overlay WALK1 opacity 1 in 0.1 THEN overlay WALK0 opacity 0 in 0 THEN overlay WALK2 opacity 1 in 0.1 THEN overlay WALK1 opacity 0 in 0 THEN overlay WALK3 opacity 1 in 0.1 THEN overlay WALK2 opacity 0 in 0 THEN overlay WALK4 opacity 1 in 0.1 THEN overlay WALK3 opacity 0 in 0 THEN overlay WALK5 opacity 1 in 0.1 THEN overlay WALK4 opacity 0 in 0 THEN overlay WALK6 opacity 1 in 0.1 THEN overlay WALK5 opacity 0 in 0 THEN overlay WALK7 opacity 1 in 0.1 THEN overlay WALK6 opacity 0 in 0 THEN overlay WALK8 opacity 1 in 0.1 THEN overlay WALK7 opacity 0 in 0 THEN overlay WALK9 opacity 1 in 0.1 THEN overlay WALK8 opacity 0 in 0 THEN overlay WALK10 opacity 1 in 0.1 THEN overlay WALK9 opacity 0 in 0 THEN overlay WALK11 opacity 1 in 0.1 THEN overlay WALK10 opacity 0 in 0 THEN overlay WALK12 opacity 1 in 0.1 THEN overlay WALK11 opacity 0 in 0 THEN overlay WALK13 opacity 1 in 0.1 THEN overlay WALK12 opacity 0 in 0 THEN overlay WALK14 opacity 1 in 0.1 THEN overlay WALK13 opacity 0 in 0 THEN overlay WALK15 opacity 1 in 0.1 THEN overlay WALK14 opacity 0 in 0 THEN overlay WALK16 opacity 1 in 0.1 THEN overlay WALK15 opacity 0 in 0 loop INFINITE times

Here’s a thread that I find it very detail and easy to understand:

No worries! Don’t feel discouraged, animating overlays can get very complicated sometimes. Just remember that every overlays need opacity switch between 1 and 0. It will be very easy once you see the pattern and get the hang of it. You can follow that thread I’ve linked for future use :blush:!
