Ok guys heres a way to create seamless looping video clips in Adobe After Effects. I have used this method on many occasions and it works very well so just follow my written tutorial below.


In After Effects, create a composition the length of the desired loop,
and jump to the last frame in the comp by pressing End on your keyboard. Drag the
clip into the comp, and line up the last frame of the source with the last frame in the comp by selecting
the clip and pressing ] (the right square bracket). Then press Home on your keyboard
to jump to 00:00,Split the clip at this
point by pressing cmd+shift+D on Mac, or ctrl+shift+D on
Windows. Press End on your keyboard to jump back to the end of the comp. Select the shorter
segment - the one that resides before 00:00 in the comp - and
press ] to locate its end. Drag this short segment above the long
segment, this is the segment you will be using for the crossfade.
While at the end of the comp, with the shorter segment selected, type
T to reveal its Opacity parameter, and click on its stopwatch icon in
the Timeline to enable keyframing, with this first keyframe being set
at 100%. Type I to jump to the segments in point, and change the
Opacity to 0%. Your loop is now finished. Press 0 on the numeric
keypad to preview it. The end result looks quite nice Wink
