  • @SimonKJones They're on a soundstage, so quite a bit of the destruction was practical. They have a behind the scenes video somewhere on their youtube channel.
  • Have you considered making this yourself? This sounds really easy to do with HitFilm, as what you described is not very complex. Like this really shouldn't take more than half an hour to an hour at most. I also think you'll be able to make it more …
  • They actually made the "before" pics look worse for their video. Also, I don't like that they deliberately changed the whole color of things ( turned what's clearly supposed to be dry, yellow grass to a bright green). http://furiousfanboys.com/2015…
  • I know you can link atomic particles to an audio layer and have the amplitude of the sound waves affect different settings. I'm not sure it's accurate enough for what you're looking for, though. Try playing around with some of the settings and see i…
  • Used Lightworks for a long time. It's actually what made me get HitFilm. Lightworks was absolutely horrible. Completely unstable, workflow was terrible, keybindings unintuitive, updates poorly implemented. And yeah, there really weren't any good fea…
  • When you say stars, I assume you mean 5-pointed stars rather than big balls of fire. The way I would do this is to start with a still image of a star. Drop 10-12 of these into your comp shot. Grab the clips you want to superimpose over each one and …
  • Update: It doesn't look like anything was done in-camera. They filmed it with a DSLR on a rotating platform. I've also found a vfx breakdown for a part of it. It looks like you can do it with 3D tracking.   Behind the Scenes: https://www.youtube.…
  • @fatninja I'm not looking at the interface right now, but if memory serves, there should be an "active" or "visible" check box (or something like that) in the mask properties of that layer. You can keyframe it so it only appears for that one frame.
  • Audio and Video tracks are seperate in HitFilm. You can just play the video and record your narration while watching it (with, say, Audacity). Then drop the audio file into your timeline under the appropriate video clip. You would film the news desk…
  • So here's the thing... I just started exporting again after restarting HitFilm. Same everything, except I changed the H.264 level from 5 to 4.2.. It now estimates 2 hours total. I'm not sure if it was because of the GPU switch or the level switch (o…
  • @Triem23 Wow I never thought of that. How does that affect the quality of the final product?
  • Thanks for all the replies, guys. I'll try to address everything mentioned. It's been exporting for 12:45 now and estimates about 2 hours left. @rgbii & @davide445 & @robin I am on a laptop. It's a 780m. I went to the NVIDIA control panel …
  • @Triem23 Today at 9:26:54 is the most accurate we've ever had.
  • @Aladdin4d My friend has a tshirt that says your #3.
  • If they're both installed on the same drive, it should work. Make sure you have the most up-to-date version of Red Giant Link. (https://www.redgiant.com/store/universe/) The download button will appear after you sign in. If this still does not work…
  • I agree with @NullUnit. If you have a Youtube account, you automatically have a Google account, which means you can use Google Drive (which is just like dropbox). Just have your sister email you the video as an attachment and it will walk her throug…
  • Are there any other free OpenFX things we can use in Hitfilm? I tried Googling some, but didn't find anything.
  • Yeah it keeps saying it doesn't detect any host applications. HitFilm 3 Pro is currently installed on my drive (C: is my boot drive and has no space for programs) and Link automatically installs on my C: drive in Program Files (x86). I can't find a…
  • Jeez I always forget about the simple workarounds. Thanks, Robin.
