Have some film grain or an overlay that only lasts for 20 seconds? Well, here is a very simple method on how to loop that clip in Adobe After Effects CS6.

1). In the main project window, right-click the file that needs looping.

2.) Hover over “Interpret Footage” This will bring out two secondary options. Select Main.


3.) In the pop-up window at the very bottom there is a looping option. Enter the amount of times you want to loop the footage. Input a high number for ease.


4.) In your timeline, your file’s layer will now be expandable.


You can now expand the clip or effect to your hearts desire.
