i have a problem with exporting an animation as a video; i can't get the animation to only go in one direction it awlays goes forward and backwards. AnimatioDirection does nothing. i can't remove the animator too. I should also convert it into a .MP4 file later. thanks in advance, i know I am a newbie. code below

a = Animate[
Plot[{-uexact[x, t]}, {x, -20, 20}, PlotRange -> {0, 9}], 
Graphics[{PointSize[Large], Blue, 
Point[{-16.89587 + 16 (t + 1), 8}]}], 
Graphics[{PointSize[Large], Orange, 
Point[{-4.346573590279973 + 4 (t + 1), r}]}]}], {t, -1, 1}, 
AnimationDirection -> Forward, AppearanceElements -> None]
Export["2-sol.avi", a, "AVI", "AnimationDirection" -> Forward]

    $\begingroup$ Use Table (with t as index) instead of Animate to make list of graphics frames. Then export that list into .AVI. Both problems - repetition and removal of control - will be solved. Next time post full code please - or just a minimal example. $\endgroup$ – Vitaliy Kaurov Sep 17 '18 at 14:30
