Im animating a walk cycle in After effects with a puppet and I have noticed on a few different web pages the advise that you should make the loop one frame shorter than the last frame so that you dont get two frames repeating. I tried this and I dont like the way it looks. It actually looks worse but Im not sure why.
It looks smoother looping with the last frame included. If I cut a frame there is a noticeable jump.
Am I missing something here because I thought it was supposed to be the other way around ie smoother when cutting a frame?
