  • Let's start with your source footage.  What software did you use to capture it, and what are the audio capture settings you used?  Something with the captured audio might not play well with HitFilm. To help diagnose this, install MediaInfo (if you …
  • @Triem23 @spydurhank Thanks! It's been just over three weeks since I've been on the forum, mainly because I've been extremely busy with my primary line of work.  It always picks up during the holidays, but this year has been one for the record book…
  • If HitFilm is crashing when it opens, contact Support.  We forum mortals can't help much.  Sorry.
  • Um...there is a search engine, and it's definitely basic.  Click the magnifying glass on the bottom menu bar.
  • Gotcha. 
  • http://hitfilm.com/hitfilm-pro/whats-new/  
  • That's a level of destructive discussion that's beyond anything I've ever seen.  I've only heard the term used to separate apps like Audacity from ProTools, where Audacity is frequently described as destructive and ProTools isn't.  What you describe…
  • @GrayMotion No worries. Just clarifying. 
  • @HitfilmSensei So that's two plugs for rate stretch (forgot to thank @Palacono for that tip as well).  Still no more info on the alleged CPU drain. Hmmm...
  • Just tried the 0.0 speed in the new Pro.  Still nothing.  More evidence that it's a platform difference (if I'm remembering correctly that you're on Windows?)
  • Hmmm...well, in Express 2017 on the Mac, the 0.0 speed doesn't do anything.  Maybe it's one of those minor platform differences. Still my ultimate question is this: is there truly a CPU hit by using this technique?  I haven't seen one, but if there…
  • @Aladdin4d I don't feel that you're accurately using the term "destructive" in this context.  Programs like Audacity are truly destructive because they literally modify the original audio data.  Once you apply Echo, for example, that echo is baked i…
  • There's also this thread specifically about Vegas integration: https://hitfilm.com/forum/discussion/45525/hitfilm-pro-version-6-in-vegas-pro-15#latest
  • As far as I know the demo should play audio just fine.  To me no sound sounds (no pun intended) like a possible problem with your media.  HitFilm can be picky about some things.  Have you tried lots of different types of files?  Both video and audio…
  • @GrayMotion I never said I got it to install. I just said the download wasn't prevented, which the OP said was the problem ("it won't let me download it").  I've already got those codecs on my system (no idea how, but they're all there!), so I didn'…
  • Sorry for the thread resurrection, but I'd like some input from as many as are willing to revisit this topic. I recently scripted a new Quick Tip video concept talking about how it's possible to use Speed/Duration as an alternate way of generating …
  • @CedricBonnier hit it.  I had that happen the other day.  Downloaded a PNG with transparency.  Looked great in image preview, but transparency wasn't there in HitFilm.  Opening in GIMP, I found its color mode was Indexed.  Changing to RGB and resavi…
  • @Triem23 Actually @Lyrehc is correct.  It should be 2.16.  Because the video is slowing down, he wants to increase the pitch to compensate so that it sounds "normal."   Which means that my original formula needs an update to make the resulting valu…
  • @kingkamagod Read the post three above yours.
  • I'm not sure I agree with the idea of adding a monologue.  Part of what makes this work so well (for me) is that it's pure visual storytelling.  Sometimes things are unclear with visuals alone, and a narration track helps to demystify those unclear …
  • @Aelanna Very possibly.  Before getting to the ins and outs of that, though, it might be good to know the specific reasons your files won't work. To help with that, install MediaInfo (if you haven't already) and drop one of the problem files into it…
  • @Triem23 Clearly the screen shot told you a different tale than it told me.  IMO there was a lot of detail missing from the post that would have made the discussion more clear right out of the gate if it were there. I felt like I was filling in gaps…
  • Quick tip: you can just put a YouTube link (not actually linked, but just the text of the URL) onto its own line and the forum will automatically embed the video into your post (you'll have to refresh the page after posting to see it).  Much easier …
  • @Triem23 My bad.  I misinterpreted what @assensy was saying.  It sounded to me like he/she brought a PNG image into a comp, and that PNG was larger than the comp dimensions, so some parts of it were out of view -- beyond the edge of the com…
  •  @Andy001z Your URL somehow got messed up, merging with a forum URL.  I'm posting it again for clarity: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLSMETuURtTXCzW7Q_ZIy4QzEnyUG8totf
  •  This topic came up not long ago here in the forums: https://hitfilm.com/forum/discussion/comment/103138/
  • Yes yes yes!  Congrats Javert!  Your effects are great as always, but I especially love the humorous approach you took to the ending.  Perfect music choice, and excellent comedic timing.
  • Glad to hear you got it working!
