what we need is a 3D 3ds or obj file creator from Hitfilm. where we can extrude text or graphic element import 3d elements etc and then save as a 3DS FILE. at this point i am using 3 different applications just to create 3d text or logos, then reset textures etc again and so forth. its no good working with 3d layers you have to have the 3d file. like walking into your bathroom with a toothbrush but to leave to go to your bed room you CAN ONLY to take a 2D photo of the toothbrush. WHATS THE POINT???? you cannot brush your teeth with a photo!!

  • Very nice clean images and good composition and sequence structure .  if i may make a suggestion:  with your visual talents and abilities do something a lot deeper and meaningful about Tesla himself  = "Today's scientists have substituted mathemati…
  • try this...one trick is immeadiatly after a keyframe create another keyframe. or simply create a mask as a graphic and track it useing mocca multiply mask in the composite = set mat in Hitfilm    
  • It’s called masking.   So anything can be a mask like a color or a shape etc.  for example I can use smoke so the smoke would not be appropriate for this subject matter but as I am busy with some clips here is an example of masking. So on your pi…
  • NICE ....I have to save up bucks.....doing extra work installing cables to speed things up. soon very soon. https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/originals/03/74/31/037431e12e73b930b86be12b56f5619e.jpg  
  • keep in mind that anything can be used as a transition. for example the lumins values of one clip to another or like this a sperate image with a mask = https://youtu.be/u-_FQVYncsM so you have to mask and do the work in Hitfilm the same as Boris a…
  • LOL. @Triem23 I also use Gimp on my one PC the new awesombump needs 4 for your graphics card but the older awesombumps work
  • Look you have a video clip that has a mask text on it that is composited color dodge. thats all. so in the tutorial you dont need all those pre-renders etc. add a video clip to your time line and duplicate it. add a text layer and make invisable.  …
  • add a layer on top of your video layer the color of your spotlight then add a round mask to that. animate the mask and composite color dodge. set opacity for look and feel. color dodge will interact with the color on your image but keep dark's dark…
  • @Triem23 hey I am also learning a lot from all you good folks at Hitfilm thanks for the heads up sent a zip to inscapedigital
  • so i have a logo png with an alpha channel . i duplicate that and hard light the top composite on the bottom image with a mask. the mask simply moves across the image. add light streak and displacement fx . use the image as a displacement for the l…
  • or in learning Hitfilm moves.... ..two steps forward and three steps back ...smile bro its called doing the hitfilm cha cha.... enjoy
  • from what i understand you getting mixed up with cam move composite and cam move layer the camera zooms on the entire composite and timeline not the media layer. you need to convert your movie two to a composite shot to retain the cam move for that…
  • @Triem 23  yes i get your point the same thing using luminous values of an image to displace light can give the appearance of 3D  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-8-sbPBCreI
  • I have one of those, look the wheels are no good. ok for a drinks trolley maybe.  you need bigger wheels  that are air filled so you going to need to spend some bucks on those.  once you have done that you still need one man on the dolly and one man…
  • so you you have a 3D planar surface that needs a backlight?  as i understand express does not have the ability to use 3D text or an extruded plane surface. is this right?  
  • in our industry its as reel as real can be
  • I get to shoot a lot of stage productions from Lion King, big Broadway productions, ice shows that travel the world to music shows like Janet Jackson. doing EPK's, interviews and media production calls etc.   set your camera up center of viewing an…
  •  please folks...always safety reboot !!!   with steel toe cap boots, nothing hurts more than dinging that pinky toe. or trying to extract a overheated processor from your melting socks 
  • a bit heavy  it takes a while getting into hitfilm head-space.  it would be awesome if we had audio interaction on some of the other fx like glow for example.  that would be ideal .  
  • You have atomic particle with audio interaction which can help you   so set up a color band and your text add the atomic particle to the band and only set the displacement x add a grade layer with text as a matte  then add glow etc https://www.yo…
  • ok i get your point...still i am very impressed with Hitfilm ...wow amazing workflow.
  • ok but the parameters ARE there IN hitfilm but wrong  in other words it should be 0 but it is setup back to front proof right here https://youtu.be/8L5n6lmq-VU in other words it should be set up at 0 same size and moving back negative smaller in …
  • no takers? the issue is say i have an surface object that is reflecting background. the surface is set up in zero z space. it is reflecting a reflection map BUT.  in this case a flame which i want reflected on the surface = where / how do i set up…
  • the difference is in real life EVERYTHING stays vertical and horizontal if you are filming from a helicopter and the pilot turns left the horizon stays there, it does not move.  YOU move around the horizon.  your film footage shows the opposite ...y…
  • well i would in my camera motion select alignment toward target position. so make sure your camera reset. to start of with so in your keyframe you are only concerned/focused on your target so simply rotate and move camera  via the rotate icon and …
  • YES!  remove prop and add prop = love it, BUT without change camera angle button is a bit useless don't you think?  What if the prop is really big like a planet? 
  • @Triem23 that clears it up for me. that's exactly what I wanted to know. Hitfilm is such a good product and at a price that is affordable even for the guy that produces content occasionally. i want to support Hitfilm in every way possible.....my way…
  • you need to understand by what is meant by free from the viewpoint of the copyright holder.  it can be different between different parties. for example I bought a very large library in one shot that wasn't cheap but i have a lifetime use for any all…
  • your project size sets the size format.  to keep your image in its original aspect ratio or format hold the shift to resize the image in proportion because all elements must stay in their original proportion.  so if you want to make an inset you sim…
  • @ Todd . ABSOLUTELY. at present if the audio is setting the timing cut or transition you have to move up and down layers between keys to line up keys with audio each time ...if the marker is visible no problem all visual much quicker. so Label on ma…
