I have never made one but I'll see if I can.  We had severe storms and tornadoes roll through the area last night so I missed this until now.  Sorry about that.

  • Ah, I see.  I did misunderstand.  It looks good, but man, you better take your camera in to the shop.
  • @D1a1v1e11 If I understand what you're trying to do you want the view outside the window to change from the blue stars to a reddish white one, right?  Possibly you could create two separate planes for outside the window and stack them in the comp an…
  • @Davlon  I am not an expert by any stretch of the imagination but the Media report shows the footage in Interlaced.  Is this the original file or your export?  If it's the original, I would add the Deinterlace effect to it and try exporting…
  • @Rogyrue Ouch!  That's robbery in my book.  But those ridiculous kind of rules are keep me from getting one myself.  On another note, it was sure nice of your friend with a license to shoot for you.  Hint, hint...wink, wink.
  • @HitfilmSensei  Wow!  The Tie Fighter video is brilliant!  I have tended to avoid importing models because I could never figure this out on my own, but after seeing the solution it seems so obvious.  Mega kudos.
  • @GrayMotion   I feel the same way about me on camera, but I have had to suck it up (or suck it in for all the good that does...) a couple of times.  Edit: Just noticed that part of my comment was lost in the cut and paste process.  @Hitfil…
  • @Rogyrue Well, I liked it!  From the opening shot with the god rays coming out of the clouds to the end.  Myself, I didn't see any of the issues you mentioned at all, and I was watching for it because you mentioned it.  It would make a wonderful pro…
  • @afromanga  I think this might be of some help to you; not 100% certain though: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zg0lySe2Tpg
  • @HIS_Films  ActionVFX has some pretty good fire stock footage that can be overlayed.  Myself, I would shoot my actors in the forest on an very cloudy day; grade it with lots of red and orange.  Use the fire VFX to show flames on the side of…
  • @Jason7  When the new export queue was added in Pro 2017 it threw me for a loop, too.  Think I spent several hours trying to figure that out and I think it was Axel's video that got me going...
  • @jackfarley57gmailcom  With the release of the new Hitfilm Pro (for) 2018 (or version 6) if you're counting like me,  you won't be able to purchase 4 Pro or even 5 Pro.  I am pretty sure the licensing as been frozen on those but I am not Hi…
  • @acestu  I hate that for you.  I still cannot think of anything that installing any new program or Hitfilm would have done to cause the problem.  I can only guess that it must have just been a coincidence it happened right after.  Hope the …
  • @acestu  When you are booting up to you see anything that would let you boot into your BIOS menu?  A Logo of the motherboard or anything at all before it goes blank?  If not, maybe you have an old video card you could put in to see what tha…
  • @catseye2500  Looks nice, and so glad you posted it too.  I needed a reminding.  I made a little holiday clip last year using a snowglobe hanging like an ornament for a possible Hitfilm playlist of Holiday greetings that didn't get off the …
  • @HitfilmSensei  I only have the demo of Action Pro at the moment.  I'm upgrading in stages even though it will run a shade more it spreads it out better for me here at Christmas time.   And I have no need for Ignite anyway.  Also, I'm still…
  • @LDYFilming  You might try using the Mosaic effect which is under the Distort folder.  Turn the setting down to 100 on the both Horiz & Vert and then tweak them from there to get a look like you want. I tried this in 4 Express so it sho…
  • @acestu  It really sounds like your video card/onboard video? has died.  Do you know if does indeed use a dedicated video card or if it's built into the motherboard?  If it's a name brand system the make and model number might help to track…
  • @HitfilmSensei  That looks really super good.
  •  @Hitfilmer18240  My workaround from years ago doing the high school and community theater shows of my daughters was to  use two separate cameras from totally different locations and have one with a manual iris set up to do the wide shots a…
  • @HYDRANT2  Have you looked at the free effects from these pages: http://vfx.productioncrate.com/search.html?query=free http://www.rodypolis.com/free-pre-keyed-fire-stock-footage.html
  • @acestu Honestly, I have no clue but I really am concerned that even in Safe Mode you had no picture.  To me, that tends to point to a failure of the video card which I know of no reason that would have been caused by trying to run Hitfilm.  If you …
  • @theK  I'm afraid I must agree with inScapeDigital's assessment. Those effects would be your only hope.  Fortunately, they are keyframable for when you zoom in.   That is the live stage video problem I have mentioned in a couple of other t…
  • @BlackArtsStudio  The guys like HitfilmSensei know far better than me and I don't make tutorials because of that, but I have played with Active Presenter a little bit and found it easy to use and there's a free version.  Just to throw that …
  • @LiquidKhaos  For me personally,  I had decided I wasn't going to upgrade this year until it was released and added a feature that I had longed for (the Puppet Tool) and a few other items like cloning but mostly it was the Puppets that got …
  • @craftycurate several users in this thread: http://hitfilm.com/forum/discussion/45475/windows-7-support#latest Have reported windows 7 working with the new Hitfilm version even though not officially supported.  There may be hope yet.
  • @Stargazer54  Not sure.  I'd guess moving at 7x the speed of sound a preemptive EMP would be the only one cause once that puppy is fired it's over for the target. 
  •  @JazzyLevFilms  Eh, it's not all that bad of an attempt.  Reminds me of hypervoxels in an old version of Lightwave, and I have seen worse in video games. Not a guru or even a guru apprentice, but have you looked for free fire assets at Pro…
  • @GrayMotion  I'm not certain, but I thought he was meaning compositing like an actor into a cockpit or suit helmet and making it have the same overall contrast.  Something that SyFy originals get wrong 99.999999999999% of the time.   The mo…
  • Justice League Whew, boy!  Where do I start?  It was a huge disappointment to say the least.  Anytime a trailer has 16 scenes that are nowhere to be seen in the theater I can't help but feel I have been baited and switched.  I cannot figure out how…
  • @MikeSoda  To amplify. Yes, as NormanPCN says those settings only apply to the Preview window and can really help the lags in the preview when checking out your timing and such when you have a lot of stuff going on in a clip by lowering to …
