I have a complex Timeline which is made into a infinite repeating loop.


The user can press a forward/backwards button that tweens the timeline time 1 second either way.


Tweening the time backwards 0 to -1 loops correctly,   but i can't seem to get the time to tween past the total duration to the beginning.


Simplified Timeline going around a square.

0  (start  @ top left)

1   Right

2   Down

3   Left 

4   Up


With the current time point of 2 you can tween backwards 3 seconds,  and it will play 2, 1, 0, 4 

But going forwards  3 seconds from the same point,  it always stops a 4.

Any help would be greatly appreciated in what i've missed

I added duration/totalDuration and time/totalTime just to see the numbers. You were just tweening time, which stops at 4 secs, so that why it couldn't go past one cycle. Changing it to totalTime allows it to go past the 4 second mark.
