    How to use the same clip


    I have a short clip that I want extended. So what I've done is added the same clip right after. The problem is that you can tell that the clip starts all over again, rather than looking like its just looping continuously from the beginning. 

    Any help woul dbe appreciated.

    I'm not quite sure what you are trying to achieve?

    If you add the same clip again of course it will stat again. Its the same clip it must.

    You could slow the original clip down to make it play longer.

    You could freeze the last frame and use the freeze to extend it.

    You could reverse the second copy of the clip so the extended part plays backwards.

    Really depends on whats in the shot and how much it moves.
