    QLab Gloom effect issue

    Hey, folks, I wonder if any of you have an idea on resolving a particular QLab 4 issue I’m having. The look I’m going for is to make the lungs png I have inhale and exhale in a continuous loop. I’ve built the loop group (say that five times fast). The closest video effect I could find in QLab...

I've never done this before so any help would be greatly...
