Seamless Background Looping Videos of The Salvation Army's Flag
September 21, 2018 / Church Technology/
I was recently the technical coordinator for Parramatta Salvos‘ Marching On event – a big concert and worship service to celebrate 50 years at their Smith Street site before we move to 426 Church Street. We had 11 guys and gals on the production team, including audio, video content, lighting, camera director, broadcast audio, stage manager, four camera operators and myself calling the show and operating Resolume. It was a big weekend, and a great way to close the building.
I created a fair bit of on-screen video content in the lead up to this event (we hired two Barco 8k projectors to fill the back walls of the stage, so finding or creating good video content was essential).
One animation I created was an animated Salvation Army Flag. Strangely enough, I couldn’t find a high quality Salvation Army flag background loop online, so I created this flag using some After Effects plugins. It loops seamlessly, making it perfect for dropping into ProPresenter (or other presentation software) as a looping background layer.

If you’re interested, here’s the final edited video from the evening (although the event was live streamed, we later re-edited the entire evening from the isolated camera footage and multitrack audio – James did a fantastic job with all this post-production):
