My first two hitfilm tests

So, I made these with the demo a week or so ago and I'm still amazed the quality I was able to get for such little time.
All I had laying around on the computer I installed this on was various footage from a while back, so I dug around until I found clips I could work with.
The first one is of my sister shooting a 12 gauge for the first time. I added a muzzle flare and a slightly bigger explosion:

The second one is a clip I had taken awhile back of my brother on a green screen. I wasn't able to get anything done with it then, but I dug it up. Low and behold, everything keyed out with just a little tweaking. I broke down the rest of the bits in the video:

What do you guys think?

  • You are not suppose to use black or geen clothing unless you got more light then you can use black clothes! Good try!
  • Haha, no, I know- note the "horrible attempt" prefix in the breakdown titling. My brother was over and he just happened to be wearing green. He put a vest thing on, but it couldn't cover it all.
    This wasn't a case study of how to a proper effect shot, more just a "lets see what I can do with some files already on my computer in an an hour or so".
  • Good job, ZF! I thought the green screen one was pretty funny for a test.

    btw- is your sister single? LOL ;)

    I made the same mistake years ago!
