New activity?  You mean like yoga or pilates?  So confused what should be done with this space. I guess it's kinda like a user's "wall" on Facebook.  I can share random commentary about stuff I'm doing (which, sadly, I mostly can't).  Others can write here as well, but it's not private.  Interesting.

  • At the beginning, it looks like the ship is starting to move through the clouds.  After about a second, though, it just feels like it's just moving in a layer above the clouds, not going through them.
  • Sorry.  Should've posted this link with my last post: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yqhl0mRuTng Yes, it's an extra step, but it's well worth it in the long run.

  • Playback in HitFilm is not always going to be completely smooth, but the export will be.  Playback smoothness depends on how your footage is encoded, and also the specs of your machine. What are your machine specs (OS, RAM, CPU, GPU, hard drive)? …
  • @MaxTG Sounds like a mismatch between your project resolution and your export settings.  The export resolution is higher than that of the project, so it's adding borders to compensate.  You might need to make a custom export preset to match…
  • So you're bailing because HitFilm doesn't have markers? SMH...
  • First off, you'll likely need to transcode your footage. Many cameras that shoot high speed (or even normal speed) encode with a variable frame rate.  The HitFilm crew has done a lot to make VFR more reliable to work with, but it's still best to tra…
  • @OadeFred Remember that this is the weekend.  The support page clearly points out that response times may be longer over the weekend because nobody is in the office. That aside, users here may be able to help in a limited capacity if you list your …
  • @orgli It would have been better to start a new thread instead of reviving an old one.  If a mod wants to split this out, that's their call.  In the meantime, I'll move on to the questions: Which version of HitFilm Express are you running?  What ve…
  • @HitFilmer128619 You can update by following any of the social media links that the HitFilm crew has been posting since yesterday, or by going to your Account page on this site.  Scroll down to the Software category, and the most recent version will…
  • Already put more than one of those new widgets to use in my latest project. So slick! Thank you!
  • I had this happen to me a few times as well after installing the latest update. However, I'd ignored the installation instructions that say to completely uninstall the old Pro before installing the new one.  After a complete uninstall, reboot, and i…
  • @Davlon When editing your original post, you pointed out that "The talent's computer fan is raising the noise floor of the track. But should this cause audio pops?"  Naturally it will.  A raised noise floor means you have a higher level of ambient n…
  • Looks really clean to me! Nice work!
  • Nice! Looking forward do it!
  • @JMcAllister Of course it's all outlined in one of Mike's videos that I haven't watched. I've never had a need to do that myself, and therefore never tried. Lesson learned!
  • Is the camera going to be tilting up to reveal these extra shelves, or just lifting straight up and passing them all along the way?  If it's the latter, just shoot a close-up of some shelves with the camera moving straight up.  It can be fast or slo…
  • HitFilm's audio mixing tools are rudimentary at best.  If you need to pre-mix audio for a project, I strongly suggest doing it outside of HitFilm in dedicated audio software.  Reaper is my tool of choice, but Audacity will do the job as well. Unfor…
  • @CrimsonLust @Nicki83930 Are you transcoding your footage before editing? I used to have crashes galore before I learned about transcoding. Now they almost never happen. I strongly recommend watching this to learn more about the whys and hows of tra…
  • +1 to what @Triem23 said above.  I would also add just a couple more comments: The subtitles/comments you include are tough to read at times. I nearly missed the one about adding inks because it came and went so quickly.  The type is also pretty sm…
  • +1 to what @Triem23 said.  Nice work for a first piece!
  • That genuinely moved me.  I can't really add anything to what's been said above.  Just beautiful!
  • I'm guessing you want something like this: The basic effect is fairly easy to do, and can all be done in Express or Pro. First make your text layer (obviously).  Onto that text layer add the Mosaic effect.  To keep this easy to match with later …
  • HitFilm requires Quicktime to be installed before you can import .mov files. My understanding for this behavior (and if I'm wrong, please correct me) is that it comes down to licensing fees.  Rather than pay Apple to license Quicktime and embed the …
  • @Palacono Your video link isn't working for some reason. @dutfap IMO masks are not the best when the layer is animated and the mask needs to remain steady.  You essentially have to counter-animate the mask, which is a pain.  For text reveals like w…
  • You mention that this is an an ad you're trying to loop.  Are you trying to make a video that you can play at something like a convention or trade show, where the ad will be looping endlessly on a TV?  If so, that's something to figure out with your…
  • I'm always up for a programming challenge, and after poking through the project format, I think I may be able to come up with something that might work for a basic EDL.  It's waaaaaay down on my priority list, though, but I'll tack it on the end and…
  • Very cool!  The slider movement, while subtle, adds a nice level of complexity to the situation.  Very clean work!
  • "However, the effect "reseed" its self each frame. Making the animation look uncontrollably shaky. Is there a way to add a delay to the fractal?" @NicholasHawkins If you keyframed the fractal seed property to change over time, then you'll most defi…
  • @umakantm What are the specs for your machine?
