  • "widely used Windows OS and probably will be for some time, especially amongst the creative community." If Windows 7 is still the most widely used OS amongst creators, it won't be for very long. The 800 pound gorilla that hasn't really been talked …
  • @Aelanna Just tested with files as close as I could get to yours and can confirm they will work as long as you get the Premium Formats Pack. If you don't want to do that then you can transcode using one of the methods outlined in @Triem23 's excelle…
  • @HitFilmer247530 My guess is Action Pro is built using the Orion VR SDK. Unfortunately I don't think Orion is available for Mac right now so I have no idea how to fix it. This is one for @JoshDaviesCEO because I'm sure he has it running on a Mac of …
  • @Aelanna  https://sourceforge.net/projects/mediainfo/ Instructions for using it are @ 19:33 of the video @jsbarrett posted
  • Videoguys.com has the Vegas Pro 15 upgrade from any previous version for $179.00 right now with and there's an additional 5% off coupon code. Ideally you want that AND the latest HitFilm Pro with Studio AND a better video card. That's a lot! You mig…
  • @Aelanna I'm pretty sure GBPVR recordings used MPEG 2 Audio and that requires a licensing fee so support for that isn't included in HitFilm Express but you can add it with the Premium Formats Pack available in the HitFilm Store. A MediaInfo…
  • @luxgud FXHOME has already refused multiple buyout attempts because of that exact reasoning. "FXHome has been the subject of more than a few buyout attempts from several of the world's biggest technology companies. Aside from providing software too…
  • @Aleanna What DVR software created the files?
  • @BlackArtStudios Are you asking for something more than auto hiding the taskbar? There are utilities that will let you hide or unhide the taskbar with a hotkey too. Taskbar Control is one and Taskbar Hider is another. Auto hide should be enabled eve…
  • @markmajoris First the obligatory make sure you have the latest version of HitFilm and the latest Nvidia drivers. There was a problem that was affecting some users.  https://hitfilm.com/forum/discussion/44621/using-hitfilm-express-pro-2017-on-machi…
  • @Grisby You're going to want to use Veedub64.exe instead of the default VirtualDub.exe. The default is 32 bit and you'll probably get a memory error. Veedub64.exe is the 64 bit version and won't have that problem. 
  • @PhilTanny 4. Make sure you have "Tracker" selected for the layer you want to track AND that the preview window is set to the "Layer" tab instead of "Viewer"  
  • @dplester The answer to that is going to depend on what the original footage is like and what else you want to do when you ingest clips. If your clips are really harsh and/or you want to extract audio tracks you probably want to use something else o…
  •  Dumbed down million dollar camera? I think they call that a GoPro these days.......... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bDoh8zQDT38&t=125s
  • @ambergart HitFilm's performance with a lot of MP4 media "as is", isn't very good. Transcoding to something edit friendly can make a world of difference even on systems like yours without a discrete GPU. Here is a thread that demos the difference be…
  • Start with this. It's long but excellent and will make your life much easier in the long run. Cineform gives you  the best performance but large files and NormanAVC gives you good performance with smaller files. In the long run a discrete GPU is rea…
  • @JoshDaviesCEO Subtle hint - I just ordered a Steam controller over the weekend. 
  • For anybody wanting to experiment with a Leap Motion controller this is a cheap way to get one.  https://www.ebay.com/itm/734246-001-HP-Wired-LeapMotion-Keyboard/162077804685?epid=1939071571&hash=item25bc97088d:g:I0cAAOSwdjdaB9F~ Clunky yes bu…
  • @PhilTanny Yep!
  • @PhilTanny Checking out Fiverr, it looks like there are a couple of people doing pretty much your idea. https://www.fiverr.com/search/gigs?utf8=✓&source=guest-homepage&locale=en&search_in=everywhere&query=talking+hea…
  • @NormanPCN to continue - a listening volume in the trimmer which probably  leads to having to do things twice once the clip is added to the timeline and audio assigned to a track and/or bus. If it's just volume control as opposed to a level control …
  • @NormanPCN There isn't an editor with a volume control in the trimmer that I know of. @jsbarrett touched on the major reason why. To expand on it, audio in the trimmer hasn't been assigned to tracks and/or busses yet making it pretty pointless to ma…
  •  Right now everybody is playing with squiggly lines because hey, that's what it can do right out of the box but I think there's a lot more that can be done. Imagine using a good sized graphics tablet instead of a touchpad or mouse. Now you can trace…
  • @PhilTanny I think there is some potential to your idea, particularly for those that aren't into character animation or simply don't have the time or money to invest in it for something they might want once or twice a year (like me). The important q…
  • @StormyKnight - Mocha https://youtu.be/NoVEeoVX-gA Or basically what @JMcAllister suggested. Do a track, add a white plane and copy/paste the tracking data to the transform controls of the layer (there'a reason for this instead of using a point). …
  • @Anderson01498 In this case if you change the extension to MOV, it'll work and your professor will probably never notice. If you really want to play it safe, a simple FFMpeg command, ffmpeg -i "%~1" -c:v copy -c:a copy "%~p1%~n1.mov", in bat file, w…
  • Essential Hitfilm 04 - How to Edit Audio in Hitfilm https://youtu.be/76Z-k2I0UzE Audacity is the most common free audio editor and if you add the FFMpeg import plugin it can open the audio from video clips then export it as a wav. If you want to e…
  • You might want to try a font manager. There are a lot more out there other than what's on that list too. A lot of them have the ability to share uninstalled fonts in way that other applications can use them. Unfortunately that doesn't work with HitF…
  • @jsbarrett Obviously you were waiting for the movie....... http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0311289/?ref_=nv_sr_1
  •  The NormanAVC settings for Handbrake will work just fine for a Mac too. https://hitfilm.com/forum/discussion/42415/transcoding-to-fast-decode-avc-for-timeline-performance
