Great tutorial! I've been struggling with this for a while now and it works like a charm after some adjusting for how Motion does things.

Thanks for this awesome tutorial, however I am using moving particles, and you said you wouldn't go into those in this tutorial. However I would be eternally grateful if you would create another tutorial on looping moving particles, or would email me to help me. Thanks again.
