…Often times for a motion graphics project,…you're going to want to take a video clip from your video project and move it over.…There's a couple things you could do right inside a nonlinear editing tool to…make this easier.…In this case, I have a simple shot of wine bottles, and…there's not a lot of movement, but…the traffic passing by has created some reflecting lights across the surface.…And it's just enough subtle movement that I like it.…However, when I get to the end here, let's tell that to loop.…And watch what happens as it jumps back to the beginning.…
There's a hard jump in there.…Both from a slight movement to the camera, perhaps the starting position and…end position were slightly different.…And the lighting.…It definitely jumps.…Well, that's pretty easy to fix.…If I come in here to the middle and take a tool, like the razor blade,…I can split this.…And, these two points are now seamless.…From here to here is a seamless loop.…So if we just switch the order here, and pull that one up, and…I'll move that down a little bit, we now have a seamless beginning and end.…
