Yes, yes, I DID put two cameras on my own wedding, as well as an external audio recorder for board feed. Sorted my camera footage on 3 and 4--dropped event markers and split the audio into mono tracks. Getting cameras 1 and 2 from videographer tomorrow, along with her audio, so I'll bounce everything through Pluraleyes for her to synch everything, then pass it back for the edit. (What? Can't EDIT my own wedding! I'd be sick of looking at it before watching it with by bride!)

  • Well, figured that tut would help use Hitfilm to make image sequences and bring track data back into Hitfilm. Besides the notes on file names and folders is generic for most software.  Glad you figured it out!
  • NormanPCN can give the full explanation here, but, long story short you have expected performance.  CPU does file read/write and video encode/decode. GPU does rendering. There's a passing of data back and forth that means one or the other usually h…
  • Juda, you can use any and all versions you have concurrently. I have Hitfilm's 2 Ultimate, 3, 4, 2017, and 6 Pro and Express 2017 on one machine. No problems. 
  • A fantastic power user note for those who hadn't encountered it before.   FYI, all the little text slides in Hit-U vids are, well, slide transitions. 
  • @Chanta1e @JepikVideo I suggest you both download MediaInfo and generate a "Tree" report of both your source and exported video then paste that here. This will help us figure out what's going on. https://mediaarea.net/en/MediaInfo/Download Jepik,…
  • I think this tutorial covers the technique. You should be able to turn the planes off and use set matte instead to reveal your text.  This would prevent the flash (which is odd), but also eliminate the black background if, in the future, you want t…

  • Llast notes: I think Depth Matte/Map is intended to go in a grade layer (hence Why I said on a duplicate of the objects). Also note that Layer Properties for a 3D layer or particle/model layer have an "include in Depth Map toggle. 
  • You haven't said what the issue is.  That said, AVCHD media is very slow in Hitfilm. Transcoding AVCHD is usually recommended. The beginning of this video discusses codecs and WHY AVCHD is slow. The rest discusses multiple transcode options, inclu…
  • There's also TIFF image sequences, but those are huge.  I'd agree with Norman that Cineform is the way to go. It's not lossless like PNG, but h.265 is lossy, and Cineform will retain more than enough quality. Additionally if you happen to have audi…
  • That's not creepy at all... Yes it is... 
  • @LiamMcM1 Here's what you need to know about image sequences.  First, an image sequence goes into its own folder with nothing else.  Second, an image sequence should be a single shot converted to stills. Or, for stop motion, starts as stills.  Th…
  • If you just want Atomic to affect the logo put Atomic directly on the logo layer instead of a grade. To clarify grades a bit--a grade is a "render" of everything below it. This means effects on a grade layer affect every layer below (this is by des…
  • @Thomekk yeah, that's a fantastic tutorial for anyone doing 2D mograph, and also is great for creating UI elements for HUDs and crosshairs! 
  • I've not used them extensively. Both appear to be used on duplicates of elements of a shot (either buried under a grade layer, or in an embedded composite shot) and generate either hard black and white maps (Matte) or grayscale (Map). The result is…
  • Intel HD3000?  *whispers* Wow, you're under min specs! Be nice to your computer if it's actually running Hitfilm without crashing a lot! It's doing a fantastic job.  *normal voice* Yeah, Hitfilm Pro can go to 8k, but that takes a really beefy card…
  • You should be able to just animate the color of the fractal noise unless I misunderstood what you were asking. 
  • I have a mostly-finished tutorial on Hitfilm Optimization and migration in progress. I need to recheck the notes to see if this is in it. While you're cleaning up, create new folders somewhere for proxies and cache. Move all existing proxies to th…
  • Poke around. I don't know the exact file directory, but, somewhere in a subfolder of your prior Hitfilm installation are all your custom presets. Copy/paste to the corrosponding directory for Hitfilm v6. 
  • @whakan it depends on where you got the fonts from. I have some OTF fonts that are problematic with Hitfilm and a couple other programs I use. I open the offending font in a font editor and it inevitably turns out the font itself was incorrectly bui…
  • @LiamMcM1 You're welcome (on both questions). You just happened to post a couple minutes before I logged in to see if anything new was going on. ;-)
  • The glow isn't lighting the girl..  Basically, you need to add a grade layer, roto some quick masks where here skin and shirt would be lit, feather a bit, then use yoyr grading tools of choice to brighten and tint the areas. 
  • @LiamMcM1 yes. You'll track your footage, export the .ma file then export into Express using the Import Camera Data option in the drop-down next to the Import button.
  • @LiamMcM1 I've never been spammed by Autodesk.
  • Title is fine. Looks good.  So. An Ae shape layer isn't that much of a big deal. Shapes could have been easily created in Hitfilm with a masked plane. Using a paint program is a valid option as well, but, for future reference, don't overlook maskin…
  • 4k video requires a GPI with 2GB of VRAM. If your GPU does not meet this standard, Hitfilm will hide the presets and not let you create a project/comp beyond what your GPU can handle.  So--what are your system specs? CPU, GPU, OS, RAM and storage? 
  • I can't think of Hitfilm specific fractal noise fire tutorials, but Ae ones should work.  Fractal noise controls are basically the same between software, glows are generic. Main thing is to use Heat Distortion instead of Turbulent Displacement. Con…
  • Hitfilm should recognize the transcoded files, no problem if... The transcoded file is the same length (so don't trim as you transcode), has the same filename and is in the same folder. Have Hitfilm closed when you make the swap, just to keep it cle…
  • Can you list your system specs? CPU, GPU, OS, RAM and storage. 
  • CTRL+Clicking on a position value in a layer's Transform properties inverts the position value. This is a great little hidden gem for all kinds of animation. Any possibility of adding a similar modifier to other Transform fields, like Rotation and …
  • Ok--I've been away from my computer for 5 weeks (I was out of the country), and my comp has been locked up doing a lot of prep work before I can get into editing the 9000+ media files I came back with. I wasn't able to double check. Sorry that didn'…
