View Full Version : combustion - timeline

I need help with shot I wan't to do in combustion 2.1.

I've got 100 frames of read animation I wan't to paly them forward and then play backwards (ping-pong), so I made workspace 200 frames long and imported footage to it twice. I wanted to move that secend animation so it started in 101 frame and reverse it, But I can't move it (or I don't know how to) and I've got no idea how to reverse it.

I hope that thats clear (I know that my eanglish is......)

Any ideas?

In order to make your footage ping-pong, you do not need to import it twice.

Import your footage once. Say the footage is 100 frames and your composite is 200 frames.

Select your imported layer and expand it. You will see the "footage" operator. Slect the footage operator and you should see the footage controls. Select the OUTPUT menu and you will find the playback behavior option.

By default it will say "Stop at end". You can select the option and choose "ping-pong".

This will achieve the result you are looking for.
