On looped animations it is common for a slight hiccup to be present in the movie on playback. This happens because the first and the last frame are identical so two frames are exactly alike. For an animation to loop without a hiccup, add an additional frame to the end of your animation by incrementing the value in Total Frames by one. Select and copy all the elements in the animation palette at frame one and paste into the last frame. Move the scrub bar to the second to last frame. Select the All Elements radio button. Now select the Add Keyframes (+) button. Remove the last frame of animation by entering the original animation length value in the Total Frames field. Render the movie and play it back. No hiccup!
