How can I loop webP animation?

HI!
Sorry for using Video editor as animation editor.
But Shotcut is better than any other video-webp converter I think.

Anyway, I converted video(mp4) to webP animation, it only played once.
But when I used gif, it loop endless.
I just used stock setting in Shotcut.

I can’t find the option about loop count.
Is there options for loop?

Thank you

Hi @maduphkn

First time I hear of webP animations. But I was intrigued so I did some research.
I found that to make the animation loop it needs this bit of code: -loop 0

After a few attempts I found out how to export an infinite webP loop in Shotcut:

  • In the Export tab, choose the WebP Animation preset in the presets list.
  • Click the Advanced button.
  • In the Other tab, add loop=0 at the bottom of the list.
  • Export

If you want a specific amount of loops, 5 for example, use loop=5 instead of loop=0

The forum doesn’t allow to upload webP files in the discussion, so here are my tests in a ZIP file

Also, you can save these settings as Custom presets. This will avoid from having to add that line of code each time.
