Hey there guys,
I am creating a looped video of an animated collage of images. Each image simply grows and shrinks over and over.

The problem is, on the timeline, I can't find when any certain point occurs again.
There are two different animation timings applied to the first and second half of the images respectively to create seemingly random movement.
So in theory any point on the timeline should occur again. I just don't know how to quickly find that!

Perhaps there is a way of selecting a number of keyframes and finding equal values across many images?

Thanks in advance,
Vince :)

I don't understand how the scaling is animated in the first place. Are you using keyframes? If you are, it's a snap -- just find the loop point, prerender and reimport. If it's something else, you'll have to elaborate.
