  • I just played with camera and object rigs and I found out you can easily add some "organic" camera or object shake/lean if you parent the rig to the exported animation. Very very useful tool, and I really enjoy tinkering with that. You can easily cr…
  • I don't know, if it was before but I think it would be a good feature to change some values of the composite shot outside from a composite shot. I mean, you insert comp "A" to your comp "B" and you can change the color of the glow effect or a text i…
  • I don't think we can create an open library with character animations. I don't think anyone can with alembic. But, maybe, I hope so there is a way to make some gizmos and background items like an animated button, a hud, a starship cockpit or somethi…
  • @spydurhank I installed it on Steam and it's working perfectly.
  • Blender 3D 2.78 with Alembic support is officially released. You can find it at www.blender.org
  • Blender 3D 2.78 RC is out with Alembic support. Didn't test it yet, but it sounds amazing. Source: https://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Dev:Ref/Release_Notes/2.78
  • I tend to use 1 point 2D tracking for small objects when it's positions the only thing I'm after, 2 points 2D tracking for stabilizing the footage or catch a solid object rotation data too, and Mocha for background tracking, and 3D camera solving. T…

  • Pencilandinc There is a link for a windows test build too.
  • It depends on the layer types. If you don't have grade layers in the list, you can create a composite shot for that 20 layers, and change the opacity of the composite shot. It works most of the time. If haven't any layers under your 20, you can safe…
  • Tape especially duct tape is useless! Never ever use it or you bring yourself trouble! If you use it for something make sure you use only one type of tape! Never ever mix two types of tapes! Just kidding I have at least 5 different types of duct t…
  •   @Palacono  Your idea is similar indeed, but the significant difference is that - as I understand it well - you want to insert media (image, video, audio) in the embedded comp. For me it's enough to change a few parameter (text, size, color, etc) o…
  • I had a recent project when i had to create so many composite shots to add a footage som subtitles, nameplates, etc. Now I had to create a composite shot for every single text because it's an animated effect. I have a long shot - 67 sec - which has …
  • Amazing! I want to shoot a whole movie on a roof of a skyscraper now Or a jumping scene with a helikopter Matrix I style. Or a Spiderman "roadmovie"[sic+haha]. Or...or...or...or a Batman logo above a dark city and a Superman flyby Amazing! So many…
  • SimonKJones I know this tutorial, many thanks for it. This trick is handy after an opening crawl when the camera tilt down and the action begins
  • @Triem23 My problem is with 3D unrolled is when you want to add something in a fix position, like an image of a galaxy in the x-wing fly-by scene, you have to put the galaxy's image way to far and have to scale up the image to achieve than with 3D u…
  • @Triem23 Nice trick, thank you to mention it! When I mentioned the green screen footage I have the Lord of the Rings forced perspective effect in mind without a motion capture camera rig (way over my budget ). Maybe we can cheat this effect for sma…
  • Interesting new update. I really like the new target control feature. It makes easy to follow objects or align a green screen footage. I have a question in mind and without a PC now I can't answer it myself. Is it possible this way to set a green sc…
  • I played many Star Wars games but the best one was the Tie Fighter from '94. It had a solid and very starwarsy[sic] atmosphere, and - even if it's a simulator - it had a very solid role playing element too. No lego games or rts or pod racer game has…
  • A full course with Hitfilm? I have been waiting a long time for this Thank you in advance!
  • Channel Name:  C. R. Messen Link: https://www.youtube.com/user/crmessen Genre: mostly Gaming Hitfilm Version: all Description:   It's my personal "gaming" channel with mostly Minecraft videos. It's a hungarian channel, so I'm sorry, but there a…
  • jinchoung  I like the first one. May I add some minor tweak to it? Is there a way or is it doable to add an option to parent a layer to the text so it'll move like the credit? I think it'll allow to add images and so much more to it, like adding a g…
  • I'm using it on Windows 10 with no problems at all. As a matter of fact it's working more stable on W10 than W8.1. I think it's because of my hardware. It's an Acer Aspire V3-571G. I changed the built in HD for an SSD of course
  • It depends on the type of the video. I mean, if it's a let's play video series and You don't want to add any effects just cut the raw video then it is not the best choice for You. If it's a review or a machinima perhaps You may need the power of Hit…
  • It's difficult without knowing the shot. If it hasn't much red apart from the actor's skin, you can manipulate the red channel on her to create a blueish[sic] skin and a little bit of glow and blur to highlight the change. If it's a complex shot the…
  • I usually use the notorious ffmpeg to convert. For example with this I can convert a 1080p PPM "video" to DNxHD. ffmpeg -i input.ppm  -r 30 -vcodec dnxhd -b 185Mb -mbd rd -an output.mov and for x264 ffmpeg -i input.ppm -r 30 -c:v libx264 -preset …
  • This kind of problem was happened to me too. I had an asteroid model and it was unnaturally dark even if I placed next to a very bright light source. First I tried to add a neutral (grey) color instead of the textures. There were no difference. Aft…
  • Great one! I love it One thing to mention, try to use the new animation value graph for the camera rig. Sharp turns and stops are undermine the effect a bit.
  • Minor import function from .blend files. Like selected (not everything) objects, empties and selected camera data. Nothing fancy. If it's just populate a composite shot with the selected 3D objects/empties and camera, I'll be more than happy Withou…
  • Basically it's an xml, but it's an overstatement that I'm working on it But it's a hierarchical structure, so You can identify the comps and you can delete them one-by-one. This way you have a chance (not much, but a chance) to find the problem. T…
  • I have the blender camera exporter script in my mind. A saw this thread ages ago, and my brain associated to this. https://hitfilm.com/forum/discussion/4602/updated-blender-hitfilm-script/p1 Edit: I love Blender and I really hope Hitfilm will hav…
