  • You would still need to point track, then you would parent the text to that tracked point. After you parent it you can go to the text layer and adjust the anchor point to the position you are wanting it to be at. That offsets the text but it will no…
  • @RhiannonClintKorea , Anyong Yes definitely you could track the movement but since it is a building and there is camera movement there will be paralax involved which won't allow the text to move realistically with the building. So if you have Hitfi…
  • @tddavis I about spewed coffee all over my keyboard reading that cause. That credits scene popped in my head and all I could do is imagine some alien going by after picking up a stray broadcast from Voyager of "Heavy Metal" then seeing this Tesla ma…
  • @GrayMotion glad you enjoyed the share. I know I got excited when I got the notification from Andrew Price's YouTube notifications. I enjoyed it quite a bit and look forward to more of his interview series that he is going to be doing.
  • A lot of times if I am trying to follow a tutorial on YouTube I will maximize the screen and follow along step by step pausing after each step and then alt+tab to switch to my Hitfilm screen and then do what I just seen for that step. I tend to do t…
  • @JMcAllister there is time stamp links in the description if you see a topic of interest. Figured I would share it for those that hadn't seen it yet and are interested in doing more with there work as Kramer started off as just a basic tinkerer then…
  • @Stargazer54 yeah that is it. No idea why it didn't take my link when I tried posting it as a link. Instead just copy and pasted the address to the link and it works now. *scratches my head* Thanks for pointing that out and bringing that to my atte…
  • I agree that the jitter was a bit excessive and not sure but in some areas the framerate seemed a bit off, not sure if that was intended or YouTubes fault. Almost seemed like when I would use inconsistent framerate footage, you kind of get a wavy/ch…
  • Last time I owned Lightwave was with my video toaster purchase for the Amiga 2000 which was back in Seaquest and Babylon 5 days. Then I gave up on 3d work till just recently and found that I remembered nothing from the old lightwave to the new versi…
  • There is also this version that was created to make the UI a little easier to use and figure out. I haven't used it but see more people starting to use it that is just getting started with 3d. I have used Blender long enough now to not really think …
  • @BobDiMarzio holy spaghetti warehouse batman!   @tddavis LOL on the tribbles, yeah there is also some hard light too that is seen. Normally I would try to shoot on an overcast day for natural diffusion. I do that when creating my own textures for b…
  • @spydurhank Thank you, initially I just set out to record some footage of the park but then movie mode kicked in when I got home and thought "Hey this would make for a good eerie scene" And so I played around with it. LOL
  • Well I figured I will just use this thread as a post all and this one was done a while back just using the day for night and a little additional grading along with the film jitter. Pretty interesting considering the sun was so bright and not a cloud…
  • @tddavis Yeah I should invest in an external for that reason, when I first started tinkering around with this type of stuff a couple years ago I never thought that I would fill a 1tb drive as quickly as it has. Even thought about digging out one of …
  • @jsbarrett Thanks for the critique and input on that little barrel test. For the lighting it was just one ambient light. For some reason lighting in Hitfilm is kind of boggling me compared to the way it is done in Blender so that contributed to the …
  • Well it has been a while and since my lonely little laptop can't run hitfilm anymore I haven't been messing with it much anymore. I do now have a newer laptop that is capable of running HitfilmPro so I did some more Blender/Hitfilm learning and deci…
  • @Aidanmac I have used plenty of rendered animations from blender to hitfilm. What are you setting your export video settings to in Blender? Not sure if it is any different for express as I was using 3 and 4 pro at the time and Blender 2.76.   https…
  • @Andy001z yes ManuelBastioni is pretty awesome, they are rigged and ready to go. You can customize between human or non human and you can even go further and modify the mesh as well afterwards to sculpt some additional details you want on the charac…
  • http://www.edp24.co.uk/business/from-hollywood-to-youtube-shift-in-focus-for-norwich-special-effects-firm-fxhome-which-has-featured-in-hit-movies-such-as-salt-and-the-hangover-part-2-1-4851023   Found that with a simple search.
  • @Andy001z  No problem, I had to share. Too good to pass up. Glad someone else found it useful.
  • n/m I was allowed to test drive it and it does run Hitfilm 2017 Pro so I guess it's sold. Being I have been itching for a while since Hitfilm 4 stopped working on my old laptop. So mark this one done/solved/or irrelevant.
  • @NormanPCN and @tddavis thank you, I was digging around all over and couldn't find it. I always did suck at Easter egg hunts. :P Glad to see that it helped and best of luck @TriFlixFilms 
  • @TriFlixFilms yes you could do that with a plane prop providing it was a true individual object. And shows up during import to Hitfilm as an individual object. From there you could adjust the pivot points of the object and then set up parents and su…
  • Actually there was a user in the forum that made a post of his AT-AT that did just that. Used animation points and had to keyframe each point and it did look good. Just only downside is the amount of time involved. It is almost like doing a stop mot…
  • @tddavis Not a problem hope it helps. 
  • @tddavis Ok here is the screen shots of the two settings windows https://1drv.ms/i/s!AkvCTSy8re42lVGvEYDfWHyTRERY https://1drv.ms/i/s!AkvCTSy8re42lVJFjn0SsGTSyhlo  
  • @tddavis  I had same issues with that same dynamic paint tutorial with an ocean impact I tried doing in Blender as well. Closest I came was creating an additional fluid simulation just under the surface of the ocean and in turn that would allow for …
  • Also just to note that fbx is only available in HF 2017, HF 4 Pro only has the alembic option. Noticed that when I tried following the AT-AT tutorial on my laptop which has HF 4 Pro and I couldn't import the fbx file but when I went to the desktop P…
  • Not sure but with the last windows update, everything is working fine now and I didn't choose to update to the creators edition it was just there. So either I got their final polished update this last time or everything kind of fell into place and s…
  • @GKDantas @Stargazer54 that's awesome I seen Newtek isn't dead by any means but last I seen they were geared towards more of the video broadcast avenue of media production. And if it comes down to breaking out the ole Amiga I just hope we can get a …
