You can do it in AE by just setting the number of loops in the Footage Interpretation window. Making a seamless audio loop in Audition is also a simple matter. Just looping audio by repeating the track will not usually work to create a seamless audio bed. What are you trying to do?
Thanks RickI use some long clips of horse riding and the relevant instructions involved in equine assisted therapy. Most of the audio I have is short, so I wanted to make longer tracks by looping.Ray Holland (equinoterapia)
In the Premiere Pro timeline, just copy/paste the section you want to loop into the Timeline. Repeat the process for as many loops as you need.
missing this option in this app.
very "practical" solution and such fresh ...
That solution of cut and paste is not actually a loop.
Loops are endless by definition.
Copies are finite. ie they will end when the copies end.
Maybe you were not wanting a "loop"..but a repeat of a clip.
My comment that answers "Kevin-Monahan"
There is no way to LOOP a sequence by exporting it into a movie file.
Its logic ...because a Sequence is finite.
Looping an output can only be done automatically by authoring a DVD (AFAIK).
Otherwise..its up to the "player"...but that not automatically looped and requires viewer input. (Press Loop.)
BTW - the OP got the answer to his question from Kevin. He was not after a "loop".
but what if my section is just a few seconds long and I don't want to copy and paste it about 300x times? Is there really no other way?
well, copy the clip.
Then copy the first 2 clips.
Then copy the first 4 clips
It'll be much less then 300x times
Oh man ... why can't they just handle it like Sony Vegas. Where I simply drag the footage as long as I want and it is automatically getting repeated when I make it longer than the source ...
I believe what EQUINOTERAPIA is looking for is something similar to what you can do in After Effects.
In the "interpret footage" settings of a clip you can set it to "loop" or "cycle" as many times as you want.
Much easier than copy and pasting multiple times (30 or 300). It would be a very useful function to have in Premiere too.
Example - I have a short beep sound 8 frames long,Loading this multiple times into the time line is going to be a little "messy", so I'll load it in Audition and create my loop there.
Better if I could do it in Premiere, instead of needing another step and application.
Many thanks for the information.
If you want to loop audio or video in the timeline, you first need to set in and out points for your clip (right click in at the top of the time line and Mark In/Mark Out, or use controls in playback window). Once you have done this, you then have to turn on looping. I have found that in the last few version of Premiere, the loop function keeps moving.
As of right now (Premiere Pro CC October 2015), you need to go to your program/playback monitor, and on the bottom right hand side you will see a plus button. Hit this to bring up options for other buttons the playback controls can display. One of them is a loop function. Drag this to the bottom of the monitor window, turn it on, and then your clip will loop infinitely between the markers. This is great for adjusting applied effects on the fly.
In older versions of Premiere, you'll find the looping in the options menu in the upper right hand corner of the playback monitor. The options menu is a little button...easy to miss.
Another helpful key combo is Shift+K which resets and plays your audio from wherever you first clicked in the timeline. This one is very helpful for audio too.
Hope that helps. Took me forever to find!
None of these answers are correct.
My brother found this thread, looking for help, and left in frustration, asking me for the answer instead.
Kevin-Monahan's answer is only half-complete.
Here's the full answer:
To loop a video or audio clip on the timeline, right click it and select "Nest..."
Name the nest whatever you like.
Now, double click the nested clip you just created. This will enter the nested sequence.
NOW, you can select the clip, copy it, and paste it multiple times. (Just keep hitting CTRL V, and the playhead advances forward automatically to place the next clip.)
Return to the main sequence.
Now, you can use the selection tool to extend that nest as much or as little as you like.
This is a far superior method, because a nested sequence is a SINGLE CLIP that can be resized, given effects, moved, lengthened, and shortened very easily.
Thanks for the response. I marked your answer as the correct one now since it's better.
It is about time PR adds the function AE has for looping a single clip the desired number of times by right clicking it in project panel.
