Video readerĀ node (and most likely other video playback nodes) too, displays last frame before refreshing back to the first frame after looping.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Create a looping Sequence. Place a layer with an active Video reader node in it, but don’t put it at the beginning of the Sequence.
  2. When the transport loops back to the beginning of the Sequence and when it hits the layer, the node will briefly display the last frame it showed before the jump.


Not a 100% workaround, but it might help to use one of the Fade nodes to mitigate the issue. Alternatively, place another layer with black content (Color to texture node might work) just at the beginning of the problematic layer.
