Is it a single frame, you are trying to loop? Can't you just make it a freeze frame then?

Nope it has two different frames. I want to loop 2 different images/pictures. Or 4, whatever.

Add another KF for the loop. So if KF 1 is frame 0, and KF 2 is frame 1, KF 3 repeats frame 0.

Here's a dead-simple way to do it:
  • Go to the out point of the second layer.
  • Make it the end of the Work area by hitting the n (for eNd) key.
  • Use the Trim Comp To Work Area command.
  • Highlight the comp in the footage pane.
  • Open the Interpret Footage settings.
  • In the looping section, type in the number of times you want it to loop.

Done.

When you add it to a new comp, it loops.

Well to me interpret footage is not selectable here. It works only on short videos or gif animatons. Not for composition I create here... :( Later I will try to understand this excellent example that actually works attached in previous email :) Thank you guys very much!!
