Need Help With Animation Loop

I made a 19 frame animation. I need it to play frames 1-19 and then loop back and play 6-19. When I try and loop it, it only plays the looped portion 6-19 but not the build up to the loop.

all you can do for now is to rename “loop” tag to something else. then it will loop the tag only if you start playback from a frame within that tag. if you start playback from a frame outside the tag, it will ignore the tag completely and loop through whole animation.

this behaviour is somewhat confusing (albeit in line with gif format, which doesn’t support loops other than “all frames”).

also, i think there’s a bug: playback will honour current frame properties before jumping to Loop.
