  • The ability to use Tracking on Composite shots. If you've ever needed to do it, you'll understand how exporting the shot then reimporting it, doing the tracking and then cut'n'pasting the data to the original shot - or a new Point -  is not really …
  • Not going to work. Well, it would, but FXHome would lose even more money. What happens when you stop paying after 2 months? Software becomes inactive? Then you wait 2 more months and want to use it again for a month so you start paying again and i…
  • Also note that the mouse wheel zooms in centred around where the pointer is. So you can point at the bottom left, zoom in with the wheel, zoom out again with the wheel, move mouse to top right and zoom into there.  Same applies with CTRL-Mousewheel …
  • @jsbarrett I wholeheartedly agree that if you've put in some effort you want to see the results, but there have been times I wished I'd had a freeze frame in normal footage (not a comp) where the next scene contains someone's head coming into frame …
  • @Triem23 That's not required. If your shots are too short it will extend the first or last frames to the length required by the transition. There was a bug in HF3 where it forgot to do that on a Proxied version which was fixed in HF4.
  • @Triem23 only if you know how that works. And I've tried it a little, and the lifetimes graphs etc. and creating floor planes for bouncing? Forget it. I can however draw a fairly convincing "wheee, boinkity, boink, boink, plop" path with a mouse,…
  • @NormanPCN yes it's to be easier, but that doesn't have to mean completely unrealistic. You might be moving too fast or slow for the scale speed of what you're animating, but nothing on earth - or off it - has to have a hiccup as it moves. Or speed …
  • From the proposed uses suggested so far: dogfights etc. are all going to have to follow the standard rules of acceleration, gravity, wind resistance etc. to look realistic, so isn't it more likely that you'll want to join together predefined turns, …
  • Already said this in your thread, but it warrants saying again: That. Was. Awesome.
  • Sexy Masks Mask generation from a raster source, to be usable in things like Neon Path. So, you create a mask with Set Matte or something and then you'd want to 'Maskify' it (technical term ) as if you'd just drawn around the edge - or edges - wit…
  • Josh, you've said "I'll" be working on stuff. Are you the actual coder, or are you directing the coding?
  • @CedricBonnier ah, that lovely phrase 'Nice to Have'. I fondly(?) remember many heated discussions in development meetings about what was essential and what could be pruned for 'resource management reasons'. Is that how Generate>Text didn't get…
  • Character spacing - keyframeable - in the new Generate>Text Effect. We've got it - unkeyframed - in the 'old' text method, but it's missing entirely from the new. An oversight, perhaps? Also the ability to apply all the Geometry Effects to the …
  • Here's a suggestion/question. While working on all the interesting tasks, could you also allocate some small portion of time on those that have been there a while and keep on being apologised for, but get no further, as well? Like recovery after a …
  • @NormanPCN The Boris Title Studio 'about' does work, but sometimes it can't decide it if wants to tell you. It's v11.0.1.1819 -2017-11-7
  • Boris Title Studio is v11; the latest.
  • I also thought it was great. I'd usually get pretty bored by someone else's holiday video, but watched it all and enjoyed it too.  I agree that quite a lot of the cuts were too short. I think you had an aerial shot that was less than a second long…
  • @JMcAllister I thought something very like that was also unexpected and reported it as a bug, so let's see.
  • @JMcAllister well, if I've got Playback set to Quarter because it can't play at anything higher and it still needs me to RAM preview to play smoothly, but it's at Full when paused so I can see what I'm doing, then I want it to do a rough'n'ready RAM…
  • If you're rotoscoping don't do it frame by frame. Divide the object up into sections, so head, arms, body, legs if a person. For a head, move 8 frames at a time and let Hitfilm interpolate the path between those changes. Maybe even 16 frames. Then,…
  • You can't delete anything when in text mode either. Select mode corrects that. Would be nice if it was either: 1) better at being aware of where the mouse was when you did something so it could apply a valid action, or 2) beeped or something to w…
  • No, you keep your 2017 Pro Plugins. Checkout the list of changes to see if you'd want the upgrade in the future. https://hitfilm.com/ignite-pro/whats-new/
  • For RAM Preview to take its Resolution and Quality settings from Playback, not Paused - as it currently does - or provide the option to choose. If RAM Previewing a slow section in the middle of a comp, the playback goes: Half Res, Full Res, Half Re…
  • @afromanga @Film_Empire So, for instance, you might have Paused Resolution at Full and Playback at Half, if your composite shot is fairly heavy and causes it to play a little jerkily at Full, but you want to be able to see the detail as you add thin…
  • @Film_Empire I add text on a plane so I can manipulate it independently, just like a Text layer. Would be nice to have the improved rendering method retro-fitted into the old Text method too though. Just because having two methods, one of which is…
  • @CedricBonnier Tried it again with Pro 6. I can't tell if it's better, although it may well be; it still does it pretty regularly. I made several masks around a person's body, head, arms etc., just as if I was in Mocha. Various speeds, including ve…
  • For me: Wishlist, Action Pro beta and new Hitfilm Pro blog posts are all bold and all slipping down with the others. I know I messed up by Dismissing Wishlist when trying to Unfavourite it, but didn't touch the others. It's all fine, I just read un…
  • Create a point, put it somewhere. Create another. Ditto. Put Attract To on one of them and Use Layer to the other. One will move to the other. Repel From is identical with a sign change on the Acceleration. E.g. Put both on and nothing happens. 
  • Hoping it will change. It's on the wishlist, because you either have to go really slowly so as to not accidentally drag and create a curved point, or you spend the same amount of time (or more) right clicking and making the odd one Linear. Frustrati…
