You can use the Venus® 1500 Timeline to extend the length of a seamless video. But if the video has artifacts or transitions at the beginning or end, you’ll want to crop those first for a smooth, continuous playback.

  1. Double click, or click, drag, and drop, the desired video from the Media Library or from the Media item in the Quick Insert group of the Home tab.
  2. Locate the Video Timeline in the Video Import window.
  3. Slide the tabs at the beginning and end of the video to the desired locations. See below.

  6. The video below shows the same video from our media library. The first view shows what happens when you attempt to loop a video that has entry/exit effects. The second portion shows the same video edited to remove the effects. The gray lines you see in the timeline represent where the video replays.
