  • @juda1 play the videos at 0.75 speed. I always play Triem's at 1.5 because he talks slowly and clearly, so can stand being sped up.
  • @NormanPCN if Hitfilm is doing the hokey on Export and then the cokey on Import of the same file, it would be interesting to see what happens after a few round trips on a linear gradient. I'd expect notches in the histogram after the first time aro…
  • Vegas Movie Studio. I have both it and Vegas Pro, but realistically, VMS does 90% of what you'd need Vegas Pro to do. Get the Platinum version, the Suite isn't worth it (I have it) for the random stuff they throw in and the Basic is too 'lite' for v…
  •  @Triem23 yes, but they're both bodges that can't be applied at Track level because...no Track level (or Project level) effects. It would be useful to be able to have a Studio-to-RGB  or vice-versa filter applied on the Export page (the equivalent…
  • @CedricBonnier Vegas has a couple of easy to drop on  Studio-to-RGB or RGB-to-Studio track, or project level, effects and it's pretty obvious if your stuff is out of range and you've gone the wrong way, so you swap them over. Doesn't mean you don'…
  • That's actually what I did and its not pretty or easy to do or explain. Hence: Not really.
  •  OK, well keeping your loyal subscribers informed is a good thing. Telling people you have no real direction for future videos might have been what turned off subscribers that came along thinking they knew what your channel was about. All over You…
  • Oh, I though you were going to tell us you'd found a way. Short answer: not really.
  • @Rogyrue You again?  Justin has done a guest tutorial for the Hitfilm channel, so he's growing just fine. Just search YouTube for "Hitfilm Lego style Transitions" and you'll find it. No need for me to post the link again, because you can also fi…
  • It depends if you are trying to create a loop, or have something act as a loop. Creation is as tddavis outlined above. Acting as a loop requires some work on your part, as there is no automatic loop option. Create a composite and duplicate your lo…
  • I only watched the first 30 seconds, so this response might be nonsense, unless you explained that you had more detailed plans after I stopped watching. After all, the start of a video signposts what will follow, right? I suspect you'll find that n…
  • Sounds like you're using the files direct from the GoPro, so they'll be fairly slow to manipulate. Transcoding helps in every way, as I recently noted here: Transcode for faster *Export* times
  • Single stepping through the video on YouTube: the gun mechanism moved back for exactly one frame. Twice. Your choices would be either: a) Not bother, because hardly anyone would notice, or b) Capture that frame, draw on it in an image program (Ph…
  • What plugins are you interested in? Do you already have some plugins you'd like to be able to use in Hitfilm? What version of Hitfilm (Express or Pro,  2017 or 2018?) are you considering applying them to?
  •  Just post the link from YouTube, or wherever you want to host it, directly in the text. The forum software will replace that with the video when you refresh the page after you post your reply.
  • It's a mocha problem. Sometimes it puts the points behind the camera, even with a good solve. The best you can do is add more planes and/or change those you used to solve, twiddle with all the settings until it gets it the right way around. Best …
  • +1,379.002 to Viewer (and everywhere else, including Trimmer): Keyboard shortcut to "Scale to Fit" view. Preferred Key on PC: the top left one with [¬`¦] on it, as it's easy to hit and nothing else uses it, but the option for people to choose what…
  • Oh, the actual fall in front of the building? Same as the sky replacement method. Once you have the actor falling against an empty sky - you cut him out with the Luminance Key -  just place the image of the building and the new sky behind him inst…
  •  @CedricBonnier don't know if you'd read my post above or not, but I've edited it to clarify some of 'Stage 2', even thought it's all just wishlist stuff.
  • If that's all you are doing, then you can do it in either. incidentally, you could also add that filter in many other supported editing programs, such as Vegas Movie Studio, using the free Ignite Plugins.
  • I might give Cineform another go (I had other issues with noise from the 'wavelets' in the past), but I'm getting good speed/quality results with .MP4.  I'm loathe to change for (possibly) minimal benefits, while the file size is small enough to kee…
  • @CedricBonnier Hmmm... you have a 'point'.  Maybe the Value Graph confuses things, let's set that aside for a minute. Well, the current keyframe 'shape' doesn't really represent the centre, does it? It represents a destination 'Path Point' for al…
  • Nice loop. You could maybe have also 2.5d'd the image of ML to grow slightly faster than the background, as it looks like it would have been fairly simple to clone around any bits where you'd see behind him as he grew.
  • Oh, very nice. Considering the amount of detail in the leaves that it would be 'tempting' for the codec to remove/blur,  - and it is in the treetops that there is the most difference - they're all pretty impressively minimally different. On a sim…
  • I see a path leading into some trees and a sky behind it. Obviously don't know what settings you use for your transcode, but if I'm losing even that much (TBH, I played around with Curves and couldn't see anything on mine; but if I have to try to…
  • Well, I could. But I'm not going to because the whole point is: I'm going to use the Speed trancoded version anyway, so don't care if it's slightly changed from the original. Just like anyone else who transcodes. If it's changed so little, then t…
  • I'd like to +1 non-linear temporal interpolation of the Mask Path points. Make them like all the other types of keyframe markers, so change the shape it is now from "Not Constant; just looks like it" to the Linear Diamond shape, add all the others…
  • @BobDiMario Ah yes, I've used the Difference method to confirm Hitfilm was drifting off when loading in a Handbraked 23.976 fps file and calling it 24fps compared to an original 23.976 fps file. I just tried the original .MP4 file and the speed tra…
  • Not as good, but... you can also use the Hue & RGB Effect to chop out the black, if the edges aren't soft- because then it struggles with Anti Alaising. Depends on the contents of the lower 3rd.
