How do I make a short video loop & upload to social media?
« on: November 22, 2015, 01:22:57 pm »
Using iPhone / iPad, I take a video clip and then what?
Do I need an app?
Do I get an app and use it to take the video?

I don;t have iPad but normally you....

1. Shoot Vid
2. Drop vid in editor
3. Edit as desired
4. Set render points ( start to finish )
5. Render to one or multiple formats for delivery.
6. Upload

Somethings now days simply have shortcut upload with basic editing or FX and a lot of that is automated.

Basically it's the same as doing audio.

Are you talking about making an animated gif?

I want a loop made from a very short 'video' taken through the phones inbuilt camera.
Not animation.
Actual video footage.
Filmed.

If you want it to automatically loop you want an animated gif. It's a gif format specification. Google how to make animated gifs. There are free websites that will do it for you.

Ok, well again it's usually the same as audio. Just as in audio you make a selection or the entire clip and make it a "clip" or "loopable" instance... Then you normall just grab it and drag it out on the time line... It will repeat for as long as you drag it. Generally you see the 'segments' on the time line but of course it will simply just loop over and over in the finished video.

So if you took a 10 sec clip and dragged it for 3 minutes, you need to render that three minute product.

If you look on YT you will see someone did that recently with the Rhonda Rousey knockout.

You don't have to edit or FX, I was simply mentioning that you could The point being that maybe you only wanted the center 20 seconds from a 60 second clip. If you want the whole clip that's fine.

Somewhere, somehow, your software will have the ability to drag clips that simply repeat... or sometimes you can COPY and then PASTE x times... Like Copy/Paste 20 times... now you have a 20x loop... render that whole deal.

Again I don;t know what apps, progs you have on iPAD but that is a pretty much standard feature in any video prog.

Okay
So I do it online not through an app?
And I am a GIF noob so if you can add anything else I'll be grateful :)

Animated gifs are for things like avatars... you don't want that. You want a video. Plus animated gifs will only use portions of your video... not like an actual loop.

Do you want audio to play during the loop or only the video? If the former, no gif for you. If the latter, yeah, you definitely want a loop. Doing what TB is suggesting (making a long video with a bunch of copies of the loop) would work I guess, but the way you described it, a short video *loop* to share on social media, is 100% what animated gifs are for.  Another option might be Vines; I think those loop automatically? But they are limited to 6 seconds.

I have a 4 second video of something from TV taken on my iphone.
I do not want sound at all.
I want it to repeat automatically / infinitely when the play button is clicked.

here watch this....

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Vd-hCsfdC8

Notice when he drops a still photo in the timeline... he then drags that photo to make it last longer... that is effectively video editing or looping that photo... Notice too the program 'knows' by default that dragging that one item simply means the user wants it to loop.

Had he done the same with one of the video clips, they would have reacted in the very same manner.

IOW, if one clip was you playing a power chord and he dragged it out to say 6 times longer... you would simply loop playing that power chord.

So the operation is... Full clip... set head and tail for good loop.... drag to desired length... it will loop from head and tail points.

Personally I would do this on your PC, but it looks like that app could do most of what you would want anyway.

But most video editors are as simply as drag the clip just like your audio editors.

Thanks for the Bing search TB
I honestly spent about an hour searching ...
I got a lot of old posts (several years old) ... many adverts for apps, a couple of free ones I tried but they only made a loop, they did not save it and enable me to upload.

Well if it has to loop infinitely then you will either a gif which is lossy OR you would have to do something to tell it to start over in social media...

But to upload to social media as say YT... wouldn't 3 minutes be enough?

The other thing is VINES which are looping videos.

Again, any decent video editor on your pc will do this... no audio.. simple, press mute or delete the audio track, or tell it to not render audio.... there are usually many ways to do whatever you want to do.

This might do some of what you want as to infinite....
