  • Try using VNC instead. There are free/open source server and client options available like TightVNC that you can try.
  • Try Audacity. Import your audio then choose Plot Spectrum from the Analyze menu.
  • Yeah, as you noted, the Merge Audio/Video feature wasn't designed to handle that workflow. A couple of workarounds: 1. You could combine the video clips on a timeline and export to a new video file. Then bring that video back in for the merge. Not …
  • The synchronisation offset (time in seconds) is stored in the HFP project file but not exposed anywhere in the user interface. The project file is an XML document. You could open the HFP in a text editor and search for the "MergedAudioOffset" elemen…
  • Try re-downloading the installer in case it didn't download properly the first time. If you still get the same error from a second download, you can ask the installer to create a log file (a text file) with lots of information that should help pinp…
  • If you can't import GoPro AVI files into HitFilm then please install GoPro Studio (free download from gopro.com) and try again. If you still can't import them after installing GoPro Studio then please contact Support.
  • If there's a precise dB reduction you want to apply to a lot of your clips, a preset might be a good candidate for you. To create the preset, first put the Channel Levels effect onto one clip, set the desired dB adjustment (e.g., to -6), then right…
  • Do you have the Selection/Pointer tool active in the Viewer? Press V to activate it. If you have another tool active (like Hand, Mask) then you won't be able to change a layer's size or its position.
  • You can try the demo version for free and then see whether the new features and improvements are useful for you:  http://hitfilm.com/pro/demo
  •  Wine-inspired musings are the best kind.
  • Yes, the HitFilm application on both computers needs to be able to access those media files. The HitFilm project file (hfp) stores paths (references) to the media files on your computer -- it doesn't store a copy of the files themselves as part of t…
  • The proxy video codec was custom-built for HitFilm and is lossless, so you don't need to worry about generation loss with your exports. The codec was designed to achieve the best lossless compression it can while still allowing real-time playback. S…
  • It's a convention that many NLEs follow. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SMPTE_timecode#Drop_frame_timecode
  • The separator depends on the timeline frame rate, not your computer locale. Semi-colons indicate a drop-frame rate (23.976, 29.97, 59.94) whereas colon separators are used for everything else.
  • Move your mouse and position it over the border between 2 panels and the mouse pointer cursor should change to a resize cursor. Now click and drag and you can resize the panels to make one bigger and one smaller.
  • This looks like a problem with Movie Studio / Vegas misinterpreting the video stream. MediaInfo, mocha, Premiere, and HitFilm itself all import the High-profile H.264 mp4 exported by HitFilm as progressive.
  • You can choose to export audio only in an AVI container.  Just untick the Video checkbox.  That will give you an AVI with an uncompressed 16-bit stereo PCM audio stream, which other NLEs should import fine.  If necessary you can use tools like Audac…
  • HitFilm's H.264 encoder is multi-threaded and will make use of all cores and hyper-threading if available. The reason the CPU Usage doesn't reach (or get close to) 100% is because HitFilm does all of its timeline rendering on the GPU.  No matter ho…
  • The timeline will find the nearest sample (frame) for its sampling rate that corresponds to the available samples in the source media. So in your example, those extra samples from your 120 fps source are ignored or skipped.  Both timelines use the …
  • The only benefit to clearing the media cache will be to free up disk space.
  • Can you upload one of the videos that's not working?  Or even better, just a very small portion of it.
  • You can slice the clip on the Editor timeline (using the Slice Tool, shortcut C) into the small part that you want to animate, and then right-click that small, new clip and choose "Make Composite Shot".  Hopefully that's what you're wanting to do.
  • Try installing the free gfxCardStatus utility (http://gfx.io). The menu bar icon will switch from "d" (Discrete) to "i" (Integrated) if your MacBook Pro is switching the GPU to save power.  Perhaps this is causing the issue. You can use the utility …
  • Try lowering the video key frame interval to 1 and increasing the bit rate.  Doing so will increase the quality but also the file size so you may need to experiment a few times to find the quality/size ratio you're happy with.
  • Are you sure that you're exporting the Editor timeline?  Look at the "Timeline" drop-down field -- perhaps it's set to your composite shot instead.
  • It downmixes the 5.1 channels to stereo.
  • After Vegas creates the .hfp file it then imports that .hfp into its media bin, and then replaces the original event on the Vegas timeline with an event of that new .hfp. If all goes well then the swap should not be noticeable in the preview, becaus…
  • When you "Add HitFilm effect" to an event on the Vegas timeline, Vegas creates a new HitFilm project file (.hfp file) at the same location as the source media for that event.  Then Vegas starts HitFilm and opens that new project. Perhaps something i…
  • Have you had any crashes when using any other GPU-intensive applications or games, without HitFilm running at the same time? Also, do you have enough power going to the card?  The EVGA site states that a minimum of 600W is required, since the card d…
  • Yes, you can have both HitFilm 1 and 2 installed on the same computer.  You can even run them simultaneously. Most .hfp files from HF1 will open in HF2 without any problems, so I suggest you give it a go. The important thing to note is that if you s…
