Seamless Loop


I am trying to create seamless loops with PI and I can’t seem to achieve it. Everything I try, I end up with a jerky shift at the point of the loop. I found a thread from about 3 years ago that has an hacky workaround but I don’t think it would work in many situations (that thread is about a looping flame).

Any ideas how to create seamless loops with PI?

Due to the random nature of particle creation in PI, it’s not possible without doing the “crossfade into itself” trick which doesn’t work for all situations.

Hi just out of curiosity which emitter/s are you using? can you share a full screen capture?

The seeds and all of the adjustments have predictable behavior so they could be marshaled into a loop. I wanted to make sure I hadn’t missed anything. Red Giant’s Particular has a way to loop so I was hoping that PI could do the same since I prefer PI.

The one I am working on now is based on the Metal Curtain 02 prefab. I have dozens of these to create with all kinds of emitter types (and multiple per project) and they must be seamless loops without looking like they are reversed
