  • You're welcome!
  • Thank you, RodyPolis! I did not understand 'seed' either but I do now. Even though I can't run HF yet- it's great to learn this stuff. You explained it so simply even I understood it!
    BTW- Love your accent. B-)

  • I like part two, tell me, where do you get your presets from?! you said you made them? sounds painstaking. i tried out the muzzle flash effect last night and wasn't too impressed by the lack of ready made options. Vision lab had all different sorts to select and tweak which meant I didn't have to sit there and modify each and every shot. But I was happy at least that the 3d controls were similar to VL, and your vid showed me how much easier it is to do it with the top view, didn't even think of that.
    any chance of you uploading your presets? ;D
  • Yes I'll be uploading some of my presets soon.
  • Sorry, I'm new to this. Where will you upload your presets and how can I use them?
    Secondly, does Hitfilm include gun cracking sounds as well or where to get them and how to work them into the video? Thx
  • Maybe on a blog I'll be making. You'll just need to get the presets into your Hitfilm presets folder and you'll be able to use them. Hitfilm doesn't come with sound effects so you'll have to get them. Just place the gun sound at the exact moment when the muzzle flash goes on and it'll match together.

    Thanks, I wonder where to get those gun sound effects.
  • Search online you'll find some. I use Action Audio Pro (a pack made by a fellow Fxhomer) but I don't think he's still selling it.
  • There's a few free gun sounds available on the FXhome site here: http://fxhome.com/sounds/
    RodyPolis - I'm not sure if you are creating any new textures for the presets you are working on, but the HitFilm preset system doesn't store presets, so if you use any original textures, make sure to make them available for download along with the presets.
  • Will keep that in mind. Thanks!
  • just to note, working on a gunfire bit now, and discovered there are in fact presets for gunfire already, I just must have glossed over them when i checked the presets folder :x still i'd like the functionality of a community based preset library where people can share stuff.
  • A good way to share presets is something we'd definitely like to introduce.
