Site Exclusive Tutorial Recording Notes:

Disclaimer: these are the actual notes I used to record this video and are written in a language you may or may not understand. Hopefully, you find them useful or cool.

  1. Pre-set a few sequences with clips ready to loop for proof of concept to be shown at the end of this video.
  2. Split your clip in two. If clip is short split the clip so the first cut clip will be at least three seconds shorter than the second cut clip
  3. Swap the position of both clips
  4. Overlap the clips by that same three seconds
  5. Add a Cross Dissolve Transition and stretch to out to the three seconds (or even a little more if you can)
  6. Add the Loop button to the icon toolbar
  7. Toggle Loop on and play through the clip to ensure an easy and nearly perfect looping video
