I have never made one but I'll see if I can.  We had severe storms and tornadoes roll through the area last night so I missed this until now.  Sorry about that.

  • @Juda1  Thanks for the detailed description.  When I get back to my computer and off my phone I'll be sure and print that out.  It will help tons.
  • @Juda1  That looks really great.  I would never have known if not for the discussion.  I will have to thoroughly go over your posts to see if I can pull it off myself and hope for a tutorial.   Hint, hint...
  • @thenaturalhomeschool  I have really good luck using this program XMEDIA Recode to convert files.  Handbrake is another. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.xmedia-recode.de/en/download.html&ve…
  • @Behind_The_Lens Here is a link I found in another thread about it.  Also, FilmSensei did a tutorial on doing it without BCC. https://hitfilm.com/forum/discussion/comment/78860/

  • @EverythingBoating  On a quick guess, do you have a camera installed for a composite shot?  If so, are you looking at the camera view when you can see all the project?  It sounds to me like the camera might be zoomed in and you are seeing t…
  • @MrEpicgamer67  I'm on my phone at the moment so I can't look it up, but one of the key effects called color difference or chroma lets you select the color with an eye dropper tool.  By the way, ordering the transparent would probably have …
  • @Hitfilmer128619  A while back there was a thread about Blockbuster trailers and on the first page down toward the bottom I posted a link to some foghorn sounds I found for one of the users.  Also, some creepy piano sounds. Here is the thr…
  • @rutxer  Wow!  Very nice indeed.  I can only +1 every thing @Triem23 said above and add your drone footage is beautiful.
  • @Triem23  Aw, you beat me to it.  I found the same ones and came back to paste.  I will add my one caveat I thought of: If you plan to have physical interaction (say clones clasping hands to pull the one up) I would save myself the headache…
  • @Mercesoul  I'm not sure this is the correct way to do this but it works for me: Up on the top toolbar where it shows the Hitfilm name  and  the FILE, the icon of old floppy disc, Icons for UNDO and REDO then the last is a box-like grid of…
  • @Jonnie45   Some interesting suggestions on the asteroids field.  Also, in light your suggestion and of the Tesla in Space conversation and reading I did on why it looks fake, I am now curious if the lack of "atmospheric occlusion" (as Elon…
  • @Anthony_VFX_CGI  I think a green box big enough to dance in woukd be easier to gimbal spin than a whole room and if the actor dances in place on the horizontal plane it could be made to look like he's traveling across a larger room with ke…
  • @GrayMotion  In nutshell, you nailed it.  This article I went and found cause you got me curious does a good job: http://www.livescience.com/61690-why-spacex-roadster-looks-fake.html I never would have thought about that, but it makes tot…
  • @Triem23  Oh, wow!  That brings back the good ol' days.  I knew that image was stuck in my brain for a reason, and that's why it brought my mind to Heavy Metal.  I haven't seen that in years.  I tried to find a copy once and never could.  I…
  • When I saw that on the news today, my first thought was of the animated movie Heavy Metal and how that would have fit right in with it.
  • @brucesearlcom  You're welcome and think nothing of it.  My keys are white plastic so I took a chance there.  I played around with the brightness and contrast afterwards and found that it would introduce some of the yellow tint back in but …
  • @brucesearlcom  I think I would start by tweaking the white balance settings and see if that doesn't help a bit.  I know in photo work you can add a complimentary color to  a photo to get rid of coloration haze like that.  I'm pretty sure H…
  • @FilthyFrenchFry  Triem23 here on the board has  probably the most comprehensive playlist of Essential tutorials that are very detailed on almost all facets of Hitfilm. You may have tried his or not I'm leaving a link just in case you haven…
  • @gabrielgus  It is impossible to activate any other version of Hitfilm and Express other than the current ones (Hitfilm Pro ver 6 and Express 2017.)  The capability to generate activations on early ones doesn't exist any longer.  People tha…
  • @jsbarrett  I thought it lost the grittiness of sand too.  I have retweaked it to add some back into the surface.   I've got a render going on adding the smoke and I hope particles from a tutorial @GrayMotion shared with me.  It is a cycles…
  • @JMcAllister  Ah, man.  I thought I had nailed it... that refrain just kept running through my head.  I actually don't think I have heard the one from Sgt. Pepper, but then I probably have and just never knew the title of it.  
  • Sure, I sent you a private post with my info.
  • @Triem23  Oh, man.  That puts me to shame...of course all you guys do...on modeling and compositing.    I only ever got to watch that show on a grainy UHF antenna rig and it was great.  I was so disappointed when it got cancelled.
  • Thanks, guys, and thank you @JMcAllister now that song is stuck in my head trying desperately to recall the name of of it!  I can hear the tune in my brain but the lyrics escape me except for that part.   Hey Jude!!  I cheated and googled.
  • @liquidlegs I think it would be easier to add the audio to the editor time line with the entire song after you have placed all your clips and composites in order there.  Then you can fine tune the timings, but I have never done that so I might be mi…
  • @geraldKIING   You can't post photos or videos directly to the forum.  You have upload video to youtube and make it public, I believe, and post the link in your post here as you did with the Insidious clip.  I think you can send a private l…
  • Okay, tamed the beast some. https://www.dropbox.com/s/a2g4ii3vyx84nbn/new sand shader from lesson 3 final.png?dl=0 This is just a single frame cause I didn't want to bore you guys with another video clip.  I'm working on render the entire scene ag…
  • @vicpul  This thread should help. http://hitfilm.com/forum/discussion/42357/how-to-post-an-image-screenshot#latest
  •   I used the same texture on the rocks and it seems to be better suited to them then the up close foreground dunes.  I glad the consensus agrees and it wasn't just my view of it.  I'll have a play with the settings and see if I truly understood the …
  • So, I've been learning more and more about Blender and I have made some progress in texturing just today.  This is a little clip I made with 2 stills and a mask path key frame to show the difference in my old J2 Desert crash with a new PBR texture. …
