Need faster way to loop playback of a clip segment followed by same clip segment(reversed)
on Jul 21, 2020 at 10:53:29 am

Hi,

I frequently cut out a segment of a clip so I can play the aforementioned segment followed by a reverse of that same segment - all on a loop.
To clarify, it looks like this - [segment1>segment1(REVERSED)]. I play those two segments on a loop to see how it looks. Then I'll adjust the start/end points as needed.

But the way I do it is to cut out the segment, paste it on the timeline twice, then reverse the second one, and set the loop region. My problem is this method takes too many clicks/keystrokes. Is there a faster way to achieve this?

Thanks

Hi Jordan

You may want to try this option and see it it works better for you.

Make sure that only the video track is selected. Right click on the video event. Select Insert/Remove Envelope . Click on Velocity. A line will appear. Double left click on line to create points as in picture below. Points can be set anywhere to create the desired effect.



With left mouse button, drag point to minus 100%. That will reverse your video at said point.

Not sure if it's faster than your other method, but one never knows...

Cheers !

Hi Jordan

That did not answer your question at all. I had 2 other forums open at the time and someone had a similar question to yours. I replied to the wrong query.

Sorry about that.

Hi Francois,

No worries. Ideally I'd like to be able to set a loop region on the main clip, then have it playback a forward+reverse of that region, with the ability to adjust start and end points. Once I've decided on the exact start/end points, I can then cut it out as a subclip on the timeline.

Yes exactly! Thank you.

Should I request a trial for these scripts through the website?

No. It will be part of the HO Free Tools library. I'll try to upload it tomorrow and will post back when when you can download it.
