  • @Jennellio, what are you trying to play it through? What are your computer specs? I once tried to play DNxHD footage in Windows Media Player, and it couldn't handle playing it back, so I got no video. When I use something like VLC media player, I ha…
  • Haven't been on the forums in a while and now I find out there is an announcement for HF3!? Awesome. Looks great guys. The most interesting feature to me is the "3D camera projection" as it appears to make movement around/in a 2d image to appear mu…
  • The H1's mic will be on par with the Video mic in terms of quality, however I don't think it is capable of the same cardiod polar pattern that you get with the Videomic. Meaning the Videomic will reject more noise from the left and right sides of th…
  • I've been using the T3i with magic lantern for a while and would never go back. I did a little "shootout" with a friend of mine and was blown away at the difference between the "nuetral" picture style compared to the cine-style one I use. The dynami…
  • Agreed. Cameras have different purposes. My T3i is great for what I need. Much better than the Canon XF100/105 for what I do, however if I was shooting something for a news station I'd want the XF100 over my T3i. Different jobs require different equ…
  • I agree with you Har. I don't like using tablets or mobile devices for forums. It find anything without a proper keyboard (and I don't mean a digital keyboard) to be a hassle to type on. I can type much faster and more accurately on my physical keyb…
  • Since the homepage is a little bit of everything, is there anyway we could make it customizable? So I can choose which categories to show and which ones not to? Like I said, since my HitFilm experience is minimal, and I don't use it often, I prefer …
  • On the topic of the new forum design, I'm not a fan. I'll explain that in a bit. First though, I'd like to comment and say that as far as manuals go for software, I've never found one to be particularly helpful for more than installation (and that …
  • I'm totally looking forward to this movie, albeit not because of the sneak peak. I think it would be great if Batman says, "I want you to remember the one man who beat you" assuming he can actually beat Superman. I don't think that line requires a l…
  • It'll likely continue going up and being taken down within hours. I'm sure after Comic Con they will release it to YT or something. I've seen it a couple times, Idk how I feel about. Definitely not any more or less interested in this property becaus…
  • Yes, Triem, funny how that works! In 20 years I'll be selling Rolling Shutter FX, so people can get that authentic DSLR look! I'd buy that, you never know when you need a little wiggle I really like these effects. How did you make them? was it done…
  • Nuke - $4000+ AE - $1000 (before CC) HF - $400 You are not going to get a Nuke quality render from HF. I guarantee you can get something that rivals AE if they are both exported to the same format. AE has a lot more export options, including a lot m…
  • If I'm not mistaken, when HItfilm originally came out July 2011 (three years ago), I was also offered a discounted upgrade to Hitfilm from Effects Lab Lite even though Hitfilm is an entirely new product. I think it is comparable to someone switching…
  • Thanks everyone for helping out. I appreciate the feedback. I shot a music video a while back with a 50mm f/1.4 and fell in love with it. When I went to buy a lens, I bought a 50mm f/1.8 because that was what I could afford. I personally hate it. Th…
  • Thank you all for your informative answers. I do appreciate all the time you took to respond. I'm specifically looking for a lens for action scenes. I could probably shoot an entire short film on a 50mm, however I find the camera shake hard to contr…
  • The only guarantee you have at deal is Christmas. I don't know if there has been a year (since I've been following FxHome) when they didn't have a Christmas sale.
  • This brings up an interesting question I've had for a while. How many of us here actually want to make it into the "hollywood world"? I personally like planning, shooting, and editing equally and am not sure I'd want to work on a "big budget" film w…
  • Wow... That sound effects pack went to good use? Glad to hear it! Teaser poster looks great! Did you use some sort of crinkled paper texture/graphic as an overlay? The overall style and tone of the poster seems to fit the teaser. From what I've seen…
  • This gets me pretty pumped. Sound design for this trailer was right on with modern action movies, but don't get me wrong, I don' think it felt cliche, but rather somehow more "legit" because of it. The colors and tone of the teaser is right on with …
  • A bit more information would be helpful. Where do you run into a problem exporting? I don't know about the viewer panel... Maybe someone else can come around and help ya with that...
  • What I would really like to see is the key thing that kept me posting on the FXHome forums for over 10 years -- the cinema archive and discussion pages. I think a community like this is the best way to get standardized commentary and criticism on fi…
  • I disagree. I don't think that they would have a "huge" advantage because I don't think there is a "huge" number of video/film editors using Linux (unless they are a part of a large VFX that codes their own tools as mentioned above.) Most people in …
  • If the goal is to avoid roto, avoid lightsabers. They go hand in hand. However, if the goal is to get a "cleaner" roto, then I can understand, but it really makes things harder. I have shot some lightsaber stuff on high shutter speeds in the last co…
  • I remember when I joined FxHome back in 07, I heard a bit about the lost splinter cell short. By that time, I'm sure it was less important, but nonetheless it stuck with me all this time, and now am very excited to see what this will be.  I'll be ke…
  • I am not sure a camera of this caliber exists. Do you want interchangeable lenses? What do you want this for exactly? The BMCC won't shoot more than 30fps with the default firmware and as far as I know there isn't firmware out yet that can change th…
  • You can't get MOV to light up because you are using an MPEG-4 codec. Use H.264 and in theory MOV should be an option.
  • Very sweet stuff you got there buddy! Congrats on your future wedding! Hope all goes well!
  • The color change comes from re-compressing a compressed video over and over. It is much better to export to an uncompressed, or nearly uncompressed format (such as DNxHD or ProRes) if  you plan to export over and over. The more times you export it, …
  • I really enjoyed the reel there guys. I think it was very "tight" edit. I liked the style of this quite a bit. It seemed very "intentional" in the way it delivered. Very well put together. I think it all flowed rather seamlessly together. I did see …
  • I agree with you Simon. I think that it is sad when the people with money hold back creativity. In the case of Marvel movies, I would agree that it is sad that they had to sell their properties to these companies so that they could grow into what th…
