CreativePact (18 posts)

Looping video techniques and Apple's divisive video editor Final Cut Pro X will be the focus of this year's CreativePact exploration.



Following a "weekend mulligan", here's my second looping video, which is actually a loop within a loop – a flux while Dr. Mark Hall worries about the detonation key around his neck, then the loop expands out to zoom beyond towards a pensive Dr. Jeremy Stone.

The mirror effect is getting a bit cliché now, but in this case has a purpose – creating the tunnel effect that links the extended loop. The short loop of Dr. Hall is (fairly obviously) made up of a forwards/backwards motion, with the direction change linking to the peak in the audio.
