    Photoshop CC Cinemagraph Video Stutter


      So I've been working on this Cinemagraph in Photoshop CC of a beer pouring into a glass. I have it playing perfectly inside of Photoshop.  The trouble comes when I export it to mp4.  When I loop it, there's a stutter when it loops back to the beginning.  Looking at quicktime player, it looks like it's somehow doing a loop back after the first frame.  Here's a video showing what the quicktime player play head looks like:




      I've tried trimming the beginning and end - there doesn't appear to be any extra frames. It also loops perfectly when I export as a GIF (but the quality is not to the level I need).   So I am a little stumped.


      Here's links to psd file:




      And the exported cinemagraph:




      Can any of you wise people see if I am doing something wrong or if this is some sort of Adobe Media encoder bug/known issue?


      Many thanks!

          Hi Pdxsteve,


          I have tried playing the video on various video players on loop it is doing the same thing at my end, I think it is happening because the last frame of the video is different than the first frame and when the video loops back to the beginning it looks like there's a stutter.


          You can try placing a copy of the same video at the end of the first video and try exporting that out as .mp4


          Let us know about the outcome.

            Hi Sahil,


            Thanks for taking the time to check out my issue.  I tried your suggestion and placed a second copy of the video at the end of the first and rendering that out as one video that loops.  I definitely saw the hitch when the play head crossed from the first video to the second (not just in looping from the end to the beginning), so something's a little off inside of the PSD. 


            The strange thing is that when I do frame by frame comparisons in the PSD or loop it in the PSD it looks good.  And when I a render out a GIF instead of a mp4, it loops flawlessly without a hitch.



            So it's still got me puzzled.  Am going to back through the Phlearn tutorial I used (How to Create a Cinemagraph in Photoshop - YouTube ), retrace my steps and see if I can figure out if there is a frame mismatch I am not catching.

              Wondering if this was ever solved?
