Hey everybody.

very simple thing...forgot..should be in every tutotial but I can't find it:

I have a short piece of video that neends to be looped many times. I am already dealing with 20+ layers in my timeline and for sanity I don't want to have another 50 for looping this video. There was some way (script?) to do that in a single time line... no?

thanks a lot,

Go to the Interpret Footage dialogue box and put the number of times you want the footage to loop in the loop box. No worries ... my research has shown that if you stare at an AE project long enough you will forget your children's names too.

There are various looping techniques. All are have distinct viability and their use depends on the source content. You should also search the COW's AE Forum since we've covered looping on numerous occasions.

If this clip needs to loop seamlessly, there was a thread on it that began about a week ago, and had posts in it as recently as yesterday. I'd go look for it.
