    OK I have created a new boot animation
    This is my decs.text

    720 1280 24
    p 1 0 part0
    p 1 0 part1
    p 1 0 part2
    p 1 0 part3
    p 1 0 part4
    p 1 0 part5

    There are 108 frames per folder totalling up to 648 frames the animation plays fine the problem is after each transition to the next folder ie. part0-> part1-> part2 ect. the screen flashes when it changes to the next folder the reason being after jpg 0000000108 (an yes u can use jpg for boot animations) which is the last jpg in the folder it plays the very first JPG again jpg 00000001 before it goes to the next folder an after jpg 216 in the next folder is plays the very first jpg in that folder (jpg109) before going to the next folder so on an so forth so at the end of the animation it has played 6 extra jps the first jpg of every folder twice.

    Visual example below (an yes I have padded the real jpgs with 7 zeros)
    part0= 1.jpg -> 2.jpg-> 3.jpg-> 4.jpg-> 1.jpg
    part1= 5.jpg-> 6.jpg-> 7.jpg-> 8.jpg-> 5.jpg
    part2= 9.jpg-> 10.jpg-> 11.jpg-> 12.jpg-> 9.jpg
    ect.

    What its suppose to do visual example below
    part0= 1.jpg -> 2.jpg-> 3.jpg-> 4.jpg->

    part1= 5.jpg-> 6.jpg-> 7.jpg-> 8.jpg->

    part2= 9.jpg-> 10.jpg-> 11.jpg-> 12.jpg->
    ect.

    Anyone have any ideas? the file is also only 16 mb so its not ridiculously large

    I pulled the boot animation down and teased it apart could not find any glaring issues. I have seen this before but it was a hidden file that was causing the loopback. I can't find one in this boot animation.


    Have you considered building a pause in the desc.txt of one frame to see if that stops the loop?
    That is a pause of 1 frame of 1/24 fps.
    Code:
    720 1280 24
    p 1 1 part0
    p 1 1 part1
    p 1 1 part2
    p 1 1 part3
    p 1 1 part4
    p 1 1 part5 
    
    There is also a code that you can try the 'c' is a continuation of the previous folder. I have seen this work with selected kernels.

    Code:
    720 1280 24
    p 1 0 part0
    c 1 0 part1
    c 1 0 part2
    c 1 0 part3
    c 1 0 part4
    p 1 0 part5
    
    Hope there is some help here.

    I saw the c commands but isn't that only for jelly bean? Also if I do the pause for one frame will it still be a fluid animation or will it blink like does when it plays the extra jpeg?

    That is bizarre. I could not find anything in the files to cause the boot to loop the first image.

    What software did you use to extract the images from the original video?

    Hmm. I have never used that. The only thing that I can think could be causing this is corrupt images. I noticed you don't have an empty line at the end of your desc.txt file. That has caused issues for me in the past (no looping at all)

    I'm coming up at a loss.

    I have no clue if this affects all devices but from the time I started working on boot animations would key the last line then basically hard return leaving the last line in the desc.txt blank.

    If I did not do this the last folder would not play, and the previous folder if set to loop would not loop. This affected all the boots that I made. I don't know if that was specific to the devices, ROMs or kernels. I have always left the last line empty.

    I have encountered other anomalies hidden in the desc.txt files (unseen codes) but this is very rare - they appear as tabs at the end of the lines and they will cause folders not to play correctly.
