  • Yea, moving 3D data from one app to another seems to be a major issue, at least in my nube experience.   Probably the single biggest reason  I don't spend more time in  3D. If  you can get your minion in to a T-pose that might help.   Facing forwar…
  • @tddavis, personally I'm not yet interested enough in 3D to dive in to Blender.  At the moment I'm looking for simple nube  tools which match my level of interest, thus this thread. I have been eyeing iClone  because I own another product (CrazyTal…
  • @tddavis, well, just about anything is easier than Blender.    If you can get your minions in to Mixamo you'll be all set.  The characters I create in MakeHuman and Fuse are accepted, but many of the characters I download off the Net aren't accepte…
  • Here's a Mac (and Windows) app that can be used to perform detailed edits to 2D images of faces. FaceFilter 3 https://www.reallusion.com/facefilter/default.aspx Sales Pitch Summary:  "FaceFilter3 is a versatile photo retouching and beautifying to…
  • Thanks for the intro to Motion guys.  I'd heard of it, but didn't really get what it's about until today.  Yea, it looks pretty awesome for a quite reasonable price. Thanks for contributing. 
  • In other news, here's a great photo morphing/warping app I've been using for a couple of years. https://creaceed.com/morphage Great for turning a still photo in to a video.  Basic keyframing.  Good company. A discontinued version of this software…
  • I'm investigating video browsers and would welcome your input.  What do you use to browse your media library? Here's what I've found so far: ------------------------ https://www.fileloupe.com/ Reasonable price, nice interface, developer responsi…
  • Triem's interpolation video wins the sound track of the day award!  Hey, where's the totally in the groove emoticon?? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YGOzMxxx9v4 PS:  It's impossible to learn anything from this video because you won't be able to s…
  • HitfilmSensei, that's a good example, thanks.
  • I hear ya.  Well, one great solution is this forum.  All my questions have been addressed successfully above, as they typically are.  So even if a particular issue is Hitfilm's fault, it's not a big deal once one knows what's going on and can work …
  • You'd want the extension handles visible at all times?  If yes, maybe that would work if the handles weren't right on the top of the mask point.  If they were off to the side of the mask point then we could use them or ignore them as needed. I thou…
  • Yep, I see now for sure, PixlPants had the answer.  So simple once you see it.  Thanks again.
  • In playing with mask points some more, I now see the usefulness of extension handles and the ability to turn them on/off via right click. Imho, we shouldn't be able to turn on extension handles by dragging.  That's the problem I think.  The whole p…
  • @CedricBonnier said, "Pan around the video: try the hand tool in the Viewer or simply use the right button of the mouse (which automatically switches to hand tool for convenience)." This simple feature is proving extremely useful, thanks for the ti…
  • JMcAllister, sure, you bet, a film festival website would be an example.  The OP is referring to websites, that's what I'm responding to.  
  • I should have known that the person with the best screen name would have the right answer. "If the Layer tab had a masking tool selected previously it keeps that with the tracker." PixlPants.  I didn't get your post at first, but now I see.   Will…
  • I've concluded it's a bug. 1) It's either a bug in that it doesn't actually work, or... 2) It's a bug in that it's too obscure to be defined as a finished interface, in regards to this one particular little thing. It's not that big a deal, it jus…
  • Thanks Palacono, my zooming is hereby upgraded. Hmm...  Tracking mystery remains.   Here's a blow by blow. VIDEO #1:  I'm in composite.  Two layers.  I track something in the bottom layer and then tell the top layer to follow the track.  All this …
  • @CedricBonnier, thanks for panning tip, very easy.  I was trying to use the arrow thingy.  Andy001z, Triem's series a good reminder.  I wasn't ready for them when I first arrived here, but probably am now.  That'll keep me busy for awhile. I'm wor…
  • Over twenty years of Net experience tells me that very few people will able to understand some new concept in theory, even if they bother to try, which is rare.  As the comments above might suggest, net users seem to be burning out on the new concep…
  • Very interesting, thanks for sharing.  You gave me a number of ideas for techniques I should be exploring, and persuaded me I need to spend much more time in the User Gallery of the forum. As for feedback, the best I can suggest is the reminder tha…
  • I hear ya Norm, yea, that makes sense.   I probably should spend more time watching the portfolios of other users to get a better idea of what is possible.  And then I could ask, how did you do that?
  • That's great JS, look forward to it, thanks.
  • Thanks Norman.  Ok, what I'm learning is that I don't know enough yet to engage in these comparisons.  No problem, will keep listening and learning and my understanding will grow over time.
  • Puppet tool must be a new feature in Hitfilm, right?  Searched google and youtube, can't seem to find much of anything about it. If Hitfilm's puppet tool is about like AE puppet tool or better, somebody needs to get bragging about it, cause it look…
  • Here's a video about After Effect's puppet tool.   Does the Hitfilm puppet tool work about like this?  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aXxh6OsamhY Can anyone point to a video of the Hitfilm puppet tool in action?  
  • Hi CNK, Well, yes, sales is a lot of work.  Please note I'm not making any kind of complaint or pressing any kind of demand.  I'm very happy with Express just as it is, and I don't even have the latest version. But presumably the point of giving …
  • Aladdin4d.  I didn't even know about fiver, so that's useful info in itself.  One positive point is that maybe I wouldn't need to create a sales site if I can find more opportunities like fiver.  I've created so many sites over so many years, just …
  • PS:  Developer says Moviestorm "will work on all MacOS apart from the latest High Sierra."
  • I feel your pain.  Blender is not for the faint of heart.  I spent some time banging my head on it last year and finally bailed, life is too short for interfaces like Blender.  Just yesterday I came across a Blender clone which claims to have a muc…
