Motion Tile with no seam?

I'm trying to create a background of scrolling clouds. The Illustrator file is meant to scroll seamlessly, but both Offset and Motion Tile leave a small seam where the repetition happens.

Here is how it looks right now:


Is there a way to eliminate that seam?

Depending on your specific needs, perhaps the easiest solution is to redo the original artwork to make it match at the left and right edges of the frame. That way when the image is offset the seam won't be visible.

It already does match, that's what I was trying to say. The seam appears regardless.

That's odd, I don't get the same result when the sides match. Here's a rough test I did with an ai file that's the same width as the composition.

it could be due to the artwork not filling the art board fully in illustrator (thus leaving a slight edge).

what if you drag that ai file onto the make comp icon, then set the comp to be 2 pixels less wide (to trim any bad edges), then take that comp into another comp and try offset/motion tile.

My *guess* is that your Illustrator file is something like 394.73221 x 599.8322 instead of a crisp 395 x 600. First rescale (taking off constrain proportions) to the crisp number, then re-crop your artboard.
