Loop events cause other
events to repeat over time in the output video. They control sequencing,
but perform no image processing.
A Loop event is always
a parent event with a single child. The child itself can be a parent
with children. Any type of event can be the child of a Loop event,
including another Loop event.
The Loop event's range
bar displays the original duration of the child event's playback
in color and the range of looped events in gray. You can change
the duration of the child event's playback by dragging the child's frame
range or the child's original range in the Loop event's track, but
you can adjust the full length of the loop (the gray part of the
range bar) only by changing the Number of Times parameter in the
Edit Loop Event dialog.

unavailable in the event track area.
