    Hi when I asked my quetion earlierI was away from the work station,
    I am using the preset background foglights.

    I want the background to swirl for 1 minute (length of project) but the background stops moyion after 5 or 10 seconds. If I loop it
    file>interpret footage> loop the background jumps (there is a discontinuity to the movement) and it the fog looks artificial.
    So how do I get continous movement from fogliht background without looping?

    Thanks and waselwusel sorry on my part for any confusion

    I don’t know where my previous response went, but it should’ve had all the info you needed in it. Anyway, here’s a step-by-step on it:

    Just select the layer, press ‘u’ to reveal animating properties, select the last keyframes of all the animating properties, drag them down the timeline to the 1 minute mark, increase the values of the properties to try and maintain the same rate of change in the values. For example: something animating from 0 to 10 over 5 seconds is animating at a rate of 2 units per second, at a minute you’d have to change the second keyframe to 120 units (60 secs * 2 units/sec = 120 units).
