How to seamlessly loop background footage?
on Jun 12, 2018 at 2:46:36 am

I was wondering how I could loop this video,



, seamlessly so it won't end after 30 seconds. I have used interpret footage to change it to loop 50 times but after 30 seconds it abruptly ends and restarts. An example of what I'm trying to achieve is in the video,



, where the creator does this perfectly.

Thank you for answering.

You need two copies of the layer, one starting 15 seconds in, composited with Lighten or Screen or Add. When the second layer has filled the screen with petals, the first layer fades out, probably between 25 and 30 seconds in. Then you loop the 15-30 seconds piece over and over.
