  • Oops! About the last line of my above post: sorry, I realize only now I was focusing on a more complex project I'm currently getting my hands dirty with (sort of  ;-) ) and if your camera only has either a panning motion or a tilting one, then you s…
  • I'm not too sure I understand what you did. My bet would be, you set the "purpose" (in "STEP 2" of the tracking panel) to "stabilize" and checked either or both of the "X position" and "Y position". This tells HF that your tracking point (or the fir…
  • Have a look at Axel Wilkinson's tutoria, in the "Video tutorials" section, "By technique / Motion tracking". The part about stabilization starts at about 3:20 and should tell you all you need. Well, there's something else though. If the feature you…
  • If I understand, you would like the points of your mask to follow tracked data. I don't believe it's possible, not directly anyway. What you could maybe do, if your mask isn't too complicated, is to combine the "quad warp" and "set matte" effects a…
  • I used to use ShotCut for such transcoding (to DNxHD). It's maybe not as fast as a converter (I wouldn't know...), but the fact it's an editor makes it possible to easily convert clips from larger files.
  • ToddGroves Maybe it's because I'm on Express 2017? But it doesn't work. Of course I was trying on clips that have been shortened (for the ones I want to "trim out"). Regarding the adjacent clips I want to "trim onto", it shouldn't matter, but it so…
  • @CedricBonnier Thank you. Being able to "remove attributes" from a selection of clips is certainly close to what I would like . I'm looking forward to that feature being implemented on Express (I'm using HFE 2017).
  • ToddGroves a) "- pressing "Alt" while using the roll-edit tool would make L and J cuts even easier and faster." In fact, you can do this already without selecting the roll-edit tool. With the default select tool (arrow) already active, you simply…
  • Hi, my wishlist so far: - means to accurately trim on sound in the trimmer (moving and/or scalable waveform in the trimmer, with line indicatin where the playhead is?) -this for both audio and video media. - markers in the edit timeline. - fullsc…
  • Those thanks and praise should really go to Axel Wilkinson, but having aknowledged that, I'll shamelessly accept them  
  • I received this answer from Axel Wilkinson: "The key thing to watch for when recording separate audio is that both devices (audio and video) are started within 20 seconds of each other. The closer the start time of the two devices is, the better fo…
  • I have the same problem on Express: the result isn't good, and now it even tells me it can't merge the files. I just sent my question and files to the staff, will let you know what they tell me.
  • I haven't reached the limits of HF4E yet so I can wait a bit But I would love to see scopes, and I'll definitely have a use for the sync feature in a few months... That said, I'm still amazed at the power you get in Express for the price! O_O
  • To check whether the problem comes from what you use to transcode, here's an AVCHD file converted to .mov DNxHD and that works fine here: https://www.catupload.com/download/7a0033c2f296a87544121a083bc0d7ed.html (Note for future readers: this link …
  • When you write "add effect", wouldn't you in fact mean "add blend mode"? My guess is, you're trying to create a comp that will lie over another clip on the editor's timeline? Then the blend mode applies to the whole comp clip, to all the layers it'…
  • Ha ha Lovely! It's fun, well paced... I like how you matched the music to the "beat" of the video (esp. at 0:17, but afterwards as well). As Triem23 wrote, everything works well.
  • So the problem could be the way your clips are encoded. That could be a clue at last People who are knowledgeable about codecs (I'm not) will be able to help you from there I guess. The only thing I can tell you is, DNxHD works fine on my computer…
  • "Does your preview window change the same way mine does? It gets a massive black border around the frame inside." Yes, it's the same on mine. Whatever the size of the original clip and that of the project (for instance,n let's say the project is FH…
  • It's the same though!?  Click and drag where you cut. More info on the tutorials pages : Start Here > Editing > Editing essentials
  • I don't know anything about XML and such so please forgive my silly question. Since Hitfilm's project files can be opened with an XML editor, I thought they were XML?
  • That's very simple. If you're going to do that kind of things often though, I'd recommend you get the Starter Pack (for the price of a magazine!) that'll give you nice and usefull tools, among which one specialized for split screen, that will be bot…
  • @Triem23 & @Palacono thanks @Ypsilon I had some surprises with the set matte effect as well and quite frankly, I'm far from mastering it! I did that test to further discover how HF works and it happens the result looked good enough to share. H…
  • Palacono Veeeery nice! "Go back to that 3D hud tutorial to get a deeper look at that 'sneaky bit' (as Simon says) that looks like a powerful way of doing some 3D with 2D info" is close to the top of my long list of "things to discover and play with…
  • @CNK "Shouldn't a plane be able to do this Triem, like it affects physics normally, light is physics so I don't see why not. Perhaps I'm missing something?" (Not sure I got you right) Are you suggesting planes (like the video of a fire) should cas…
  • Here's a quick and dirty test I did, just threw the basic ideas in HF to see how it could look. https://youtu.be/UaWx7MyrZ0U I used a "green screen fire" from Youtube, a text layer and for the background, an image I had close to my mouse pointer …
  • Epitaph_DF "I would like to see your results Cervier but the video is private." Oh! Right! I didn't pay attention to Hitfilm's export settings. That should be solved now.   "I have got a shot all setup with 2 tracking points, the "nub" on the ro…
  • I had two ideas on how to fake 3D for the "bubble plane". One didn't work, the other gave what I'd consider acceptable results. Idea #1 I thought one (theoratical) way of faking rotation would be to use two double-point tracking: one with "horizon…
  • I don't think you can do it from HF, you'll need to do it from your Youtube user account. I don't know what the menu is in English, maybe "video manager" or something like that.
  • johnballantrae "Cervier - or Cromthor (I subscribed to your channel) - can you tell me what you did at 3:01 to zoom in" If I was able to help you, then I'm happy The "Cromthor" thing on YouTube isn't really a channel.. It could have been mistaken…
  • johnballantrae "I think my question is how do I view the audio track in the trimmer. I mean, how do I get it to show in the trimmer" As far as I know, you can't. Not on the trimmer. Then again, it's on the timeline you're going to do the sync-ing…
