Can gif animations loop infinitely?

In relation to a question from 2012 to this task https://www.en.advertisercommunity.com/t5/Basics-for-New-Advertisers/Can-animated-GIF-and-Flash-adve...

I have still the question if a gif loop animation can be infinite when the base loop is still 13seconds for example? In relation to your guidelines i only found these statements:
Animation length must be 30 seconds or less
Animations can be looped, but the animations must stop after 30 seconds
Animated GIF ads must be slower than 5 FPS

Animations can be looped, but the animations must stop after 30 seconds, means that a general animated gif can't be looped infinitely?

When we loop our banner which is 13 sec per loop twice to 26sec does the banner stop than on the last frame?

Thank you

Correct, it cannot loop infinitely.

 

You will need to program it to stop at the 26 second mark.  Adwords cannot do this for you.  If you submit it with an infinite loop, it will be disapproved.
