Hello, I want to loop an animation from VisionLab but can't find a tutorial about it anywhere. For example I want to have the end tweened back to the start but in a smooth way so it just keeps looking the same (a good loop) but can't figure it out. I want to make an Aurora Borealis loop. (The loop should be a total of 10 frames orso)

Thanks!

For a particle effect, you can just extend the effect for as long as you like, you don't have to loop it.

But it has to loop, I want to use certain effects for some Flash projects and if it does not loop the filesize will skyrocket since I need to use .PNG for alpha channels.

I mainly bought this product for flash projects so I do hope it's possible.

If you have already bought the product, please register it to receive full support. For some effects, looping is possible, but it isn't as simple as just clicking a 'loop' button. For other effects, it won't be possible.
