Hello, I was wondering if it's possible to loop an effect in after effects. Let me explain more. I'm creating a scene with changing colors, the best look for me was using the Hue/Saturation effect. I would just key frame it and change the color every 5 frames, this gives me a quick color change. The thing is, its tedious to key frame it every 5 frames for the entire clip. It would be better if I could some how loop it through the entire clip. I basically want to animate it for about 30 frames and than take that animation and loop it for the rest of the clip.

I hope I explained this well enough, if you want more information let me know, thanks for any help!

Add your keyframes, then alt-click the stopwatch for the parameter. Add the following expression:


This will loop your frames for the duration of the layer.
