Hi Aladdin4d - Apologies for the late reply - I've only just seen your message. Anyway, no problem at all, Yeremyah can be a real pain in the ass with his attention-seeking postings and his personal attacks.

  • Thanks, Kirstie. That's the answer I was hoping for. Other software companies out there with a similar licensing model - such as Cakewalk (makers of Sonar, the digital audio workstation), seem to think it's OK to force lapsed customers to pay the …
  • The Fotga follow focus system looks very impressive. Obviously, bear in mind that when shooting HD video it can be quite difficult, when using the small built-in monitor on the camera, to discern whether or not the required item is in pin-sharp foc…
  • I have the integration working with Movie Studio 13 and HitFilm 4 Pro, but I don't own Vegas Pro so I can't help with anything that's too specific to Vegas Pro 13. However, here are three things you could try that might help in testing and troublesh…
  • I have a fairly low spec HP Laptop that I bought for £340 ($500): i5-4288 2.60Ghz, Intel Graphics 5100, 8MB RAM, 5200 rpm Hard Disk. Editing 1080p mp4 footage from my Canon DSLR in HitFilm is pretty much impossible due to bad stuttering in the vie…
  • @AndrewCameron - Have you tried simply renaming the .mov files from your iPhone to have an .mp4 extension? Cineform is an excellent codec for editing. It is not reliant on QuickTime as it can be contained in an .avi file. It's available for free - …
  • In the UK, burning money is not in itself a crime, but don't deface it or the Queen will not be amused. (The Queen is never amused about anything). In 1994, The KLF, a pop group that had a number 1 hit with the Doctor Who theme burnt £1 million ($…
  • For reference, Avid (the company that produces Media Composer and ProTools) has posted a Knowledge Base article relevant to this topic... http://avid.force.com/pkb/articles/how_to/QuickTime-Support-and-Security-on-Windows Note that under the headi…
  • If you have lot's of .mov files from a camera and you want to change the extension to .mp4 to remove the QuickTime dependency, @NormanPCN posted a batch file that does the job super fast... https://hitfilm.com/forum/discussion/40059/timeline-playba…
  • @Brain132 - If you can do without QuickTime, due to the security risk, uninstalling it is a no-brainer. As a second best, just uninstall the QuickTime player (quicktimeplayer.exe) and leave the codecs installed - the vulnerabilities only apply to th…

  • It's us that should be thanking you for all the fish! You've been a real inspiration on my HitFilm learning journey, thank you so much. Enjoy your new horizons!
  • Aladdin4d - It was me who suggested a 'T' icon.  That was a mistake as I forgot that the Compositor viewer uses an  'A' icon. Whatever letter is on the icon, it should be consistent across both the Editor and the Compositor viewers. Sorry for the co…
  • Well said, @Palacono and @CedricBonnier Forums in general can be awkward spaces to feel comfortable in, at least for me. For example, I dropped out of this thread a few days ago simply because I was in the minority regarding the opinions expressed.…
  • * Full screen the video view In Premiere you have a simple shortcut to make an arbitrary view go maximized (and back). I frequently use this to watch parts of my editing in fullscreen preview. In Hitfilm there seems to be no such option? -----------…
  • Ideally, new users should read the manual and watch tutorial videos. Unfortunately, a lot of folks expect software to work intuitively, at least for getting basic tasks accomplished. In general, I find the usability of HitFilm to be of a very high …
  • I agree with Yeremyah on this. I’ve been using non-linear video editing applications for over 20 years and HitFilm is the first one I’ve come across where you can’t add text in an obvious way to the editor timeline. (You can create text in a Comp ti…
  • @Palacono – Thanks for posting your instructions for integrating HitFilm with Sony Movie Studio 13. Now that I’ve got the integration working I’m really impressed at how well these two applications work together. I can confirm that the fix also work…
  • Correction... my driver version is: 10.18.14.4294
  • @Flying Banana78 I'm currently running Windows 8.1, 64bit. My Intel HD graphics chipset is not exactly the same as yours... Intel Iris Graphics 5100 driver version: 0.18.14.4294 date: 25/09/2015
  • I had a similar problem moving from HF3 to HF4 regarding OpenGL using Intel HD graphics (HF3: viewer displays fine / HF4: viewer remains blank). I initially thought my Intel graphics drivers were up-to-date because I updated them via the HP suppor…
  • Viewer Panel: Add a window control icon that toggles between normal size and full-screen size. I want to be able to quickly assess the sequence I'm working on from the viewpoint of an audience member, i.e., full screen, without the distraction of …
  • Add modifier key (such as CTRL) to allow 0.1 incremental adjustments to Control values. (Majahr) For me, this is a top priority. Having to enter small increments by typing numeric values on the keyboard is extremely tedious. As an alternative …
  • I agree that there should definitely be a Normalize option in HitFilm. In the meantime, here is a workaround that works for me... 1. Install Audacity (it's free audio editing/processing software) 2. Install the FFmpeg pack for Audacity. The FFmpeg …
  • Hi Yeremyah. The absence of a text tool in the editor view had me puzzled also. I never worked out how to do it, so thanks for demonstrating a good technique.
  • Thanks for your assistance, Ady. I managed to summon up enough perseverance to have another go at installing the latest Intel GPU drivers. After looking for solutions on the web, I followed the instructions on this web page: https://forums.beamdog…
  • My 9 month old HP laptop with Intel Iris 5100 graphics seems to be engineered by HP to prevent display driver updates sourced direct from Intel. From an Intel support page: "A customized computer manufacturer driver is installed on your computer. …
  • I have the same issue (or something very similar) using the Hitfilm Pro 4 demo. Video will display in the trimmer normally but when it gets added to the editor or compositor timeline, the viewer window remains black. Also, I have not been able to …
