Hi, I'm trying to make a 25 second video of a tornado with no background loop smoothly. Since the tornado's shape/movement/etc are not constant, it does not loop smoothly. I believe I could use frame interpolation between the end and start of the video to create a smooth loop via inbetweens, but I have no idea how to do this. I haven't been able to find any tutorials online, either, probably because frame interpolation isn't usually used for this. I understand the result won't be perfect, but it doesn't need to be. Can anyone help?
What you could try is taking a snapshot from the beginning and end frame, put the end frame at the beginning and beginning frame at the end for reference. Then make a 2-3 second warp at the end toward the beginning frame and at the beginning toward the end frame (in reverse) and fade between the two mid-way through the warp. Kinda like morphing. No guarantee it will look natural, but it should at least smooth the cut.
