Hi folks,

I need to recreate a sky from just before the sun sets until nighttime going through all the stages blue to yellow - orange - purple - night.

One option is to stitch together stock footage, however the tricky things is that my footage needs to play over the course of a few hours. My fallback plan is to buy stock clips of each of those timeframes and loop them.

Any suggestions?
