As of Version 6.0, AnimationCycleRepetitions has been succeeded by settings for ListAnimate.


is an option for cells that specifies the number of times a given animation cycle should be repeated.


  • This option applies to sub-loops within the main animation loop. With the setting AnimationCycleRepetitions->n, the sub-animation is repeated n times before moving to the next cell outside the sub-loop. Here, n can be any positive integer.
  • With the default setting AnimationCycleRepetitions->infinity, the sub-animation is repeated indefinitely until you explicitly stop it.
