  • I also use BBFlashback Recorder since quite a long time.
  • This now works with the latest build 261 of Vegas Pro 15 which was published last Friday. Es funktioniert in Vegas Pro 15, wenn das aktuelle Build 261, das letzten Freitag veröffentlicht wurde, installiert ist.
  • "Even if  Handbrake doesn’t allow bitrate selections and double pass coding for variable bitrate."  Actually  there is an option for 2-pass encoding and you can enter your desired (average) bitrate when using the simple mode. In advanced mode you h…
  • The keying workaround is what I mentioned in my first post. It certainly works (as this is exactly what a secondary color corrector actually does under the hood), but it's far from straight and fast and it'd make things quite complicated in more com…
  • Secondary Color Correction Plug-in I'd love to see a secondary color correction plug-in in HitFilm/Ignite.  Select a certain color by dragging a pipette and color correct only this selected color and - as an option - invert the mask and color corre…
  • Tweak for "Day For Night" FX. Please add an option to completely remove the horizon gradient. Setting the "Horizon" slider to 0 will still leave a small band of the horizon gradient.
  • Ah, good hint. I forgot there's wishlist. Adding it …
  •  Thanks, then at least I know I didn't oversee an fx like this or a setting.
  • So am I right, there's no secondary color correction yet in HitFilm/Ignite?
  • If we dig deeper into it, there is a "video_full_range_flag" which could be set to 0 or to 1. When importing video, Vegas Pro ignores this flag, set or not.  So chances are HitFilm either reads and interprets this flag and it may be false interpret…
  • Yes, that's it. Switch your project to 8 bit and you'll see the text without further processing. In your linear float point project you could also use the Levels FX with preset "Computer-RGB to Studio-RGB" to recover. "I have my Preview window set…
  • "Vegas was weird though, Colour Curves didn't recover the words, but Brightness and Contrast did." If you mean my demo file "levels.mp4" - there is no need for a certain recover process in Vegas Pro. Just import. But use the internal preview window…
  • I see what you mean. Thanks for the input.
  • I oversaw Aladdin4d refers to US standards. I can only speak for EBU ones. So I edited this post.
  • Sorry to repeat. But it's no more true since quite a long time that levels above 235 are illegal for broadcast use, at least for the EBU area. There may be some stations or some persons which/who would still reject video with levels above but there …
  • Yes, true of course.
  • Yes, I think that's it. And I second what Norman said: "We can always expand levels in our software but we can never get clipped levels back." The way it works now causes doubled trouble for Vegas Pro usesers if they would like to do their color co…
  •  Yes, same here. There is text information in the frame but because of the clipping which happens in HitFilm this information is gone and no way to get it back. At least I didn't find a way to recover. Using a 32 bit float point project and trying t…
  • I'd like to show a different approach. Maybe you could download this small test file which is H.264 720p25 (MainConcept AVC, zipped for download purpose). Unzip and import this file into HitFilm Pro and tell me what text you could read in the frame?
  • "As of Vegas 13 the above linked chart is accurate." I know this chart, but I would not take it as base for any in-depth considerations about proper level handling. In Vegas Pro if you output/render signals of 16 - 235 to MainConcept MP4, it will …
  • HitFilm Pro 2017. Though I even would love to have such kind of secondary color correction as Ignite plug-in for the use in Vegas Pro (testing ColorFast in Vegas Pro, too).  Of course Vegas Pro has it's own "Color Corrector Secondary". But the ver…
  • I think this is good help for now. Thanks a lot.
  • Similar problems appears when doing a HitFilm roundtrip from Vegas Pro. Using full level video in Vegas Pro, it will be back clipped when having processed via HitFilm.
  • Common misunderstanding which is based on false interpretation of Rec. 709. Luma of 235 is defined to be reference white in 8 bit video. Peak level is a different pair of shoes and nowadays almost all broadcasting stations in EBU allow for peak leve…
  • I saw the reports in a german video forum and in the Magix forum for Vegas Creative Software. By the way — there was another post after my first one here which is gone now. And my post was edited and the foreign post was added to mine, but I did no…
  • If you use Vegas Pro 14 and already installed HitFilm after your last Vegas Pro installation, try a clean reinstill of HitFilm.  There should be no special handling to make HitFilm Pro 2017 work with Vegas Pro 14. If it still doesn't work, in the V…
  • Interesting facts, thanks.
  • So what about XDCAM EX then? Though it might be outdated meanwhile, it is MP4 containing MPEG-2 video and PCM audio.
  • "Also, one big feature request: Something I am missing from Premiere straight away is Trim to Cursor. On the Pr timeline I use the keyboard shortcut Q to trim from the in point of the clip to the cursor position and W to trim from the outpoint (whic…
  • O.k. - here is a screenshot which shows HitFilm Pro 2017 (4k DCI 2160p @ 25 fps) with scopes panel on after I tried importing a JPEG file:
