  • hey wow psionic, thought the name was familiar. I remember usign your dwarf model back in my dark basic days now will totally be using it on hitfilm!
  • I don't have any links on hand, but I do have experience with painstakingly trying to match up shots with limited space. Originally, I'd have a virtual set and figure out my shot background, and then try and align the actor on camera with it before …
  • thanks for the replies. yeah they will be counter strike maps mostly, so no real need for extra detail. I'm sure if my machine starts to struggle I can get the models chopped into pieces and just use the rooms/sections that I need for the composite.…
  • Hi gary, what is the footage like that you are trying to track? is it full of movement and lots of colour changes? or is it very dark? I've noticed that outside shots can be iffy due to trees moving, it needs solid object points to track better. I'…
  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=THHZobJRiPk This is one I did in PFHoe, the fraps'd footage was shot in 75fps, which meant pfhoe read it as 25 and when it exported it came out to a 25fps camera track in Hitfilm. Not sure why it won't do the same for …
  • latest video was this, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=THHZobJRiPk edit: redone the video with me sitting on the roost. Was going to throw more people in it down the bottom but too much effort to film myself in the backyard from that angle. Going to …
  • Hi merix, I've gotten this problem too. It seems pfhoe only exports with a frame rate of 30 for files shot with my phone camera (that does between 15 - 29.97 frames)which is annoying as it won't correctly track the shots. (also I have to convert the…
  • you cut off your finger.. and you're worried that the knife didn't line up?!?!?!?! edit: also, how many left hands do you have?
  • Nuwanda I had this when playing around with a few diff. programs. It's to do with the .ma file, when exporting it for adobe after effects (as listed in one tracking program) it came up with the proper tracks (but jittered a lot)but when exporting to…
  • Playing around with some old footage on my new pc (woo 64bit and new graphics card and more ram woohooo!) It's been great working with the new pc as even 1080p footage playback runs at full framerate. (specs are i5 2400 with 8gb ram and xfx hd6850) …
  • I knew I should have tried adding lights! :P Nah the tentacle one was great, really interesting effect. There were a few really well done entries too, though most seem to be wizard battles from the harry potter tutorial Now people need to post abou…
  • I'm using my old pd150 with an sg blade adaptor for lenses. It's a solid camera in both performance and literally. The damn thing is too heavy for my tripod (which is a cheap flimsy one) and it's too heavy for a shoulder mount for extensive shooting…
  • thanks simon! yeah seems to work nicely comparatively. I think I'll grab a copy next pay (thanks for the extension till end of august!)
  • yeah that's really good! would be a great trick for rolling opening credits across a river at night.
  • Here is my competition entry, I was going to put in some more lights but even the ambient light seemed to turn my crosses into solid blocks, and I'm too tired to work it out :P EDIT here is the much quicker version with MUCH MUCH better sound work.…
  • thanks for the tip, I tried putting it into another composition, but it still got the black box effect. I cut n pasted the layers, still did the same thing. Ended up just doing the whole shot in the one composite. This isn't a problem it's just I wa…
  • hehe thanks prospero, yeah the throwaway clip I was using for my special effect shot was one on a muslin backdrop in my old studio. I only had a few par cans set up at that time so it was 3 lights for him and the green screen, was done shoddily for …
  • YEah I keep fiddling with it to make it quicker, i've sped it up so it goes in under one second, but still looks a little slow. Anyway another video to show the particle effects i put in http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cv1iGl1akUQ
  • Working on my entry in the HitFilm special effect comp. Really excited about it actually, not just because I came up with a really neat idea that I wanted to try out or because my neat idea turns out to be relatively simple using HitFilm (hooray!)bu…
  • ahh i see. yes I was putting the flare in like the tutorial showed, using the grade layer but a plane would make more sense. thanks for the heads up.
  • new missile test! after watching the 3d rain tute from HitFilm I decided to test out using that technique to create foreground/backgrounds from the same image and use masking to make missile effects covered 9as opposed to masking the effect or keyfr…
  • I have a sony pd150 with the sg blade 35mm lens adaptor mount. I've had the camera for a few years and was sick of the lens on it so I got the adaptor and I love being able ot do more with the depth of field. However the camera is old, still semi pr…
  • not exactly sure what you're describing (will re-watch a new dr who when i get home) but I'm assuming the effect you're after can be done with some basic rotoscoping, maybe just use the neon glow grade and mask the outline that you want to have puls…
  • watched the tutorial at the start of my shift, will be nabbing it when I get home. Also went into your particle tutorial, keep up the good work!
  • the thing was a horror film and a freaking great one. This, this looks like it's the same idea just replayed. I mean I get that it tells us the story before snake bliskin arrived, but was it really necessary to bring it back? I'd have preferred a wh…
  • 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 wh…
  • ok I know i promised a punisher film, but I have NO FRIENDS! well I do but they all work during the week and I work weekends, so I couldn't get enough people on the same day x( But I did get my mp5k and 1911's delivered today so I decided to do my o…
  • 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 …
  • I thought i replied but musn't have come through, I used it again yesterday to make a smoke effect, ran perfectly fine. e8400 3ghz processor and only 4gb ram with radeon hd4850.
  • thanks I also made a snappier 6 second version after complaints that it took too long, which is fair enough at 11 seconds for a 30 second spec fx clip i can understand :P
