I have a related question.

When exporting a Manipulate, ControllerManipulate, or Animate to an AVI, 
no matter what I try, the resulting AVI always runs the animation 
forward then backward once. I'd like it to run the animation forward 
only, and repeat a specified number of times (say, 3). I've looked all 
over the documentation for Manipulate, ControllerManipulate, and 
Animate, and for AVI and SWF, and have done a great deal of 
experimentation, but have not succeeded in this.

I have tried setting AnimationDirection and AnimationRepetitions in 
Animate, but these options are ignored when I export. I've also tried 
setting these options in Export (which accepts them as options provided 
you put quotes around them), but again they are ignored.

Export to SWF has an option for "RepeatAnimation", but as far as I can 
tell, it is only possible to set this to "True" (the default, which 
repeats *infinitely*, forward then backward), or "False" (which runs the 
animation once in each direction).
