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.

  •  @vicpul  The forum won't let you insert an image directly.  You have to host your image on a cloud site or pic hosting site and then copy and paste a link in your message for others to retrieve it like with the YouTube links.  Hope this he…
  • @PhilTanny  I'm not one hundred percent certain, but your serial for Express 2017 should be in your account information under the Menu button in the top right of the page in front of you.  Mine shows an Activation button also and that tells…
  • Ryang83jkd   Very nice effect in turning live action into 2D style animation look.  Reminds me that if Ralph Bakshi had Hitfilm back in the day what he could have created.  You did a superb job capturing his Lord of Rings and Wizards feel.  And I ag…
  •  @DanelMartinez  If you are talking about doing this effect live action, then I would light the actor from below with a fairly bright light source right next to a floor fan point upward to get the hair and clothes movement all against a gre…
  • @jsbarrett  Hey, congrats on the tutorial with ProductionCrate!  Very informative and useful to many I am sure.
  • @Worpolax  The easiest way that I know of would be create a composite shot and "slice" your video at the moment you desire and export a PNG of that last frame and import it back into Hitfilm and place it after your video and set the duratio…
  • @D1a1v1e11  Good job.  You are far better at Blender than I am.  You really have the texturing and lighting thing down pat.  Your prop chain on the wrists looks very convincing as well.   And about your note at the end in the next to last …
  • @D1a1v1e1 Found this discussion that has workaround talked about but that I have never tried. https://hitfilm.com/forum/discussion/45650/exporting-camera-from-hitfilm-to-blender.  Also, you can use Blender to track video in the image edi…
  • @D1a1v1e11   First, my condolences on your loss. It's always hard to lose a loved one.  But second, I don't know if you're involved with using Blender or not but here is a tutorial I ran across from this kid I have been taking Udemy courses…
  • @Triem23   Damn, I always forget to look up add a video link...  
  • @paulose  You want to use the razor blade looking icon to the left of the timeline window and left of the composite area.  It allows you to put the timecode marker at a specific section (the start of a bad spot) and then left click on it to…
  • @PROFMAXIMVS   I would think it will vary depending on exactly what your video consists of i.e. live action footage, CG generated effects, etc.  But basically you want to try and have the first frame and the last frame of the loop be identi…

  • @Triem23  Oops, I totally misunderstood that then...  Sorry to have led @louis921222 astray like I did.
  • @louis921222  Okay, you are in a composite shot, correct?  I think you have a camera added (by a 3D layer most likely) if you didn't add one yourself.  That makes both my background options lose the check marks and turns the viewer black.  …
  • @louis921222  Top right corner above the viewer area is the word: OPTIONS and a little triangle.  Click that and halfway down click on checkerboard background.  This should change the check mark from background color to checkerboard, and ch…
  • @mallardbread   Sounds like there is something messed up with the MP4 information and it needs recoding.  There are several programs that will do what uploading and downloading is doing right in your computer.  I like Xmedia Recode, but a n…
  • @crispalamino  Did a quick google and there are several videos for pop ups books for AE.  In the past, some of the AE stuff has been able to be directly translated to Hitfilm just by changing the name of the tools they used to what Hitfilm …
  • @crispalomino  I don't know how to do what you're asking in Hitfilm but I suspect that it would be far easier in Blender or other modeling program, but the Puppet Tool would definitely be a good way to go in Hitfilm.  Myself, I have never h…
  • @Xx_Cedric_xX  This is with Pro but the process is identical for any version of Hitfilm. And if you're in the Editor mode it works the same there as well except you start at a default of 5 minutes there and it will increase the length when …
  • @YucukluSumurta  I was going to suggest with duplicating the layer and masking out all but the slide carriage on the top layer. Since it will only move for a few frames at best, the eye should only register the motion not that the slide is …
  • I meant the file sizes and that sort of stuff.  You never know when you might run into a limitations that swoops in out of the blue on specs. If Hitfilm doesn't like the files from the new SD it's format maybe something unusual.  I had a cheapie USB…
  • @Triem23 for the WIN!!!  Never even thought of looking for one at those shops.
  •  My mistake.
  • @Starwarsfan78  It would be a big help if you could post some info on the files like format and size, dimensions, etc.  Also, if you could download and install MediaInfo and then post a text report copy here it would great improve our chanc…
  • @D1a1v1e11  What @BobDiMarzio is taking about is taking a piece of say, 3/4"  or 1" PVC tubing and cutting it into small sections which would be determined by how big you want the links to actually be and using a heat gun (plumbers use them…
  • @Triem23  Wow!  Another useful thing I did not know about.  Thanks for that info.  I've always just tweaked the built in but sometimes it wasn't really what I needed and knowing this will come in handy.
  • @BobDiMarzio  Well, now, that's mighty interesting.  I had no idea you could do that.  It could be very useful under the right conditions.  
  • @NicholasBonnie  Look in the Temporal effects folder; there should be one called Speed (I think.  I'm on a phone and can't double check right now.)  It should have a setting that you can animate with keyframe to reduce the speed in a variab…
  • @Hitfilmer195100  I had quite forgotten to check on these and so glad you posted to remind me.  Here are a couple of screen caps of the presets I created by stacking Hitfilm effects. https://www.dropbox.com/s/0r2ylmjr29d02ch/8mm Preset eff…
  • @BobDiMarzio  You can say the again!  I think mine are part Tribble at the rate they reproduce around here
