- Let's loop one more clip.…I'm gonna come over here to the overlook…and there's two to choose from…but I think I want to use overlook too.…In this particular case, we have subtle motion.…Again, you could turn off adaptive resolution…using the pop up menu so it stays full quality as you drag.…I'd like to get it while the people are taking the pictures…so let's make sure that they stay there.…
That's pretty good.…And we'll end right about there.…Now, you'll note that she walks out of the frame…but that's okay.…This area up top is gonna become froze in motion…and we'll just leave the motion…down here below in the branches.…That looks pretty good.…I'll come here near the end and shorten the clip a bit.…You'll also note the time here…so you could be precise and type in an amount…like 7 seconds.…
Now, we'll shorten this clip by dragging.…Holding down the shift key, it'll snap.…Go to the middle of the clip…and choose Edit, Split Layer.…You'll notice just like Photoshop…we have a looping point here in the middle.…It's now pretty easy to move these…
