Hi Jim.

The 3D Flag program is a dynamic simulation, but finding a loop is possible.

The key is to make sure that your wind speed doesn't change. If the Wind Speed parameter isn't animated, and the Flag Pole isn't animated, then the simulation will loop.
The trick here is that the loop may not technically happen on an exact frame.

Ed's suggestion of looking for two similar (and simple-to-match) frames is a good one. You may have to do a slight blend between the first and last frame since they may not be quite the same.

Let us know if you're having trouble finding a good loop point.
