  • Thanks guys! And yes Stargazer54, out of all the features of HitFilm, I simply love it's tracking capabilities the most. It turns my amateur films into something at least a little better...haha. By the way......they were my eyes on that statuette..…
  • ....and this is what it's all about. Brilliant! I remember making my own Super 8 Star Wars film back 1977 where we had to scratch the emulsion off the celluloid with a sharp knife to make laser beams.....haha. Both time, and Hitfilm have made things…
  • Hmmmmm......I got a little inspiration today for a possible fifth.....lol. However, it'll only be after I do a massive upgrade of equipment and software https://vimeo.com/227023348
  • Thanks for that! Yes....I really love that one too! I discovered the more hi-res the background is the better. And making the background "live" or a good video is ALWAYS better than just a photo! Looking forward to tinkering with upgraded software s…
  • Too kind Aladdin! Hitfilm software is the best "big boy toy" ever! Been wanting to do this kind of thing since 1977 (Star Wars). Great fun!
  • Loving it! Nothing like a good space/mystery adventure. Look forward to seeing some more!
  • Thanks Palacono! And you're very much right.......a few places I wasn't happy with the audio, but by that stage I said to myself "to Hell with it"....lol/ I took a week off work to finish the last part of the film, and the thought of going back fixi…
  • Mmmmmmmm...................yup.................just what I need
  • Yes Triem, Hitfilm 2 Ultimate. I think I'll upgrade now though. I'll only submit this new one by itself to festivals. Each subsequent one has been a learning experience, so when I look back now, I see more errors than ever before and say to myself "…
  • Thanks guys! And yes Bob, this is all very much just a fun hobby, tinkering with the HitFilm software. I found the iPad to be the most convenient way to shoot and edit. Having said that, I want to do a little more next time.....so time to upgrade ca…
  • Alrighty then....this is my latest effort. Fourth & last  installment. Might do a horror movie next time. But for now.....time to rest Enjoy if you can! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=utPxUoMrH3Q&t=31s
  • As for the light flares for engine glow......I'm sure there is a better way to do it, but I simply just change the scale of the flare as it moves either away or towards the camera. Usually two or three key frames does the trick......and is pretty se…

  • Awesome! Thanks Triem for those YouTube tutorials! Dang! My imagination is taking me places now......lol
  • I actually was/is in the same boat as you. Sets, locations, models etc.....what to do? At the end of the day, I was inclined to go with 3D models and green screen. And again like you......I didn't really have time to get creative with 3D rendering p…
  • Haha...thanks for that Aladdin4d. I'll seriously look into that LED paneling If nothing else..........it will help eliminate those annoying shadows I struggle with!!
  • You so got that right Andy001z! I actually have one of those kits. Green screen, lights, umbrellas, stands etc.......it's great! And yes......"space", that's the killer. When I need full body shots, I go to this office building which has a huge blue…
  • Hey guys...thanks for all this info Yes Triem, you are quite correct that I film that way. And WhiteCranePhoto........you are quite correct about my need to get better lighting equipment. As Triem pointed out.....99% of my projects are indoors with…
  • Many thanks for the Triem! Shall investigate them both shortly. Appreciated
  • Hey thanks for that! Cameras........definitely 4K and low light. Editors.....I actually have Sony Vegas somewhere, though probably 7 years old . I don't really have any problems editing with HitFilm, I think it's wonderful. But I'll have a look at …
  • Too kind Aladdin! Thanks
  • Thanks guys! And yes Triem, this episode is going off on a very different tangent. Stay tuned
  • Still a few months away from completing Episode IV. But thought I'd throw this trailer together using iMovie just for the heck of it . The hardest part is trying to make it look interesting without giving away spoilers.....lol. https://www.youtube.…
  • Excellent stuff! Escapism at it's best! Especially loved the aerial scene!  
  • A small preview of Episode IV (not necessarily edited in the final format of how it will look when finished). But continuing my tradition on honouring my favourite sci-fi classics. In this case The Empire Strikes Back. https://vimeo.com/206700879
  • Awww, thanks guys! Currently working on Ep. IV. Which will differ a lot from the previous entries.  Also going to concentrate on "subliminal effects" rather than the visual ones. Subliminal in that I shall try and make it seem like I'm using profess…
  • Hey...if you're referring to that little "digital display" thingy at 0:43 in the trailer, that wasn't mine at all....lol. That was a quickie green screen effect I saw on YouTube....and had to borrow it, cos at that time during the making of my movi…
  • Haha....you're right! I don't believe my little offering did much to "win" anything in an Indian Film Festival. However, being screened was enough to get me on IMDB. So that will do me for now Okay.......on to the next one
  • http://www.imdb.com/title/tt6262614/?ref_=fn_al_tt_3 Well, thanks to HitFilm, my little home movie made it to IMDB. Thanks guys!
  • Great movie! Well done! I've found the 3d models and particles don't slow my PC down that much until I start to add "motion blurs" and "shadows" etc. However, slow as it might be to render on slower machines (mine is average)......the results are w…
  • Thanks guys! It's "little stuff".....but thrilling. All thanks to Hitfilm
