  • As @Palacono indicated, that edge is normally hidden in the overscan area of old TVs.  It could be data, but more likely it's just chromatic aberration from being copied a time or two on old video decks.  I doubt that recapturing will get rid of it,…
  • @Davlon Using Express, I ran a quick test with the Starfield preset of the Fractal noise effect.  Added angle blur cranked up pretty high.  Messed with the Fractal Noise settings until I got semi-sparse, long streaks, then dropped Polar Warp onto it…
  • Here's what I like to think about: HitFilm comes from a small team, and has been around for just six years.  In that time, that small team has built a brand new editing and compositing package from the ground up with hundreds of features that in lo…
  • That's because timecode is based on time, not on speed.  It's going to show the elapsed time for any clip that has it, regardless of the speed of the clip. You could work around this pretty easily, though.  Drop your clip into a comp, and add the t…
  • The animation is very well done, but as @tonyg pointed out, the voices were definitely mixed/recorded waaaaay too low, and the rotating hands began to be distracting pretty quickly.  It felt like it was just thrown in to look cool, without being mot…
  •  @NormanPCN I have a hunch your speculation re: the null-to-black frame issue with AVI files is correct.  I remember encountering black frames in a project involving screen capture footage that I'd acquired from a Windows user.  Haven't thought abou…
  • @NormanPCN You are correct.  Sorry for the confusion.  I think it was a result of my variable brain rate. 
  • The 5GB file size might not necessarily be the issue. I use files that large all the time, but they've been transcoded to make it easier to edit in HitFilm, and there's very little delay when importing them.  It's more likely the combination of code…
  • I actually have the opposite happen sometimes.  I've read everything new in a given category, but somehow the category page still shows a blue dot for that category.  Doesn't happen often -- maybe once a month -- but the only way to clear the dot is…
  • Still don't see the blue dot by the wishlist thread. What exactly needs to be cleared for that to work?
  • Long shot: are your video card drivers up to date? That aside, I suggest contacting support to see what they can do.
  • @patooks Make a comp.  Drop your two clips into it.  Animate one to scale up and turn.  Animate the other to start already turned (the opposite way) and scaled up, and finish level at normal scale.  First keyframe of Clip A and last keyframe of Clip…
  • That reminds me. I produced some tutorials years ago (dig dig dig...2004? Wow...) all about lip sync.  They were originally sold as a 2 CD-ROM set, then I moved them to an educational streaming site when the distribution company stopped selling them…
  • I just use a mix of my ears, eyes, and the two-frame rule. If I can clearly see via the clip's/layer's waveform (assuming it's turned on, of course) where a sound occurs that I want to match, I'll use that to start.  Even if I can't, though, I'll s…
  • Thanks.  I tried setting up something similar matching your settings, and while it wasn't flatlined like yours appears to be, it did behave strangely, getting "stuck" in different patterns for an oddly long time.  It could be that yours is sticking …
  • Considering that no sound file works, it sounds like there might still be something missing in your setup of the effect that's preventing it from working.  Can you post a screenshot of your HitFilm window with the effect open in the Controls tab, si…
  • Have you tried other audio files? Perhaps the problem is something unique to that one. Along that line, I suggest installing MediaInfo, then dropping your problem audio file into it.  Copy the text analysis and paste it here.
  • Standard question: what are your system specs?  CPU, GPU, OS, RAM, hard drive? More specifically, what exactly is (or isn't) happening?  Are you saying that pressing Play does absolutely nothing?  Or does it play back, but maybe not smoothly?  More…
  • HitFilm doesn't currently have any morphing features, nor does it have paths.  The devs are open to requests, though.  Submit your ideas on this thread: https://hitfilm.com/forum/discussion/38770/the-hitfilm-wishlist-what-features-do-you-want#latest
  • While waiting for one of the mods to split this off into its own thread (where it should have been started in the first place), I'll ask for the standard stuff: full system specs (CPU, RAM, OS, hard drive) and HitFilm version.  I don't know Windows …
  • @colamanBS Toy Rifle is apparently having several general usage issues with HitFilm, and is tagging questions onto numerous threads throughout the forum. I don't believe it's a problem with your project files.
  • @Triem23 Woohoo!  I'm rich! *ahem* Glad the problem was solved quickly.
  • Your system does not meet the minimum specs to run HitFilm.  If you notice on this page, the oldest Mac OS that will reliably work is 10.10.  Will your system support an upgrade to a newer OS version?
  • So if I understand you correctly, you want to stop the main music at a certain point, but have a specific piece on the end continue echoing past the point where it stops. Is that correct? Long story short, your actual media needs to drop to silence…
  • So if that's the alternate ending, where's the original? That mystery aside, this is really well done!  A bit sad that the monster gets wiped out simply for snoring, but it's kind of twisted humor I suppose.  As cool as the gun effects are, one of …
  • I'll share the basics behind my version, but still won't have time to crank out a more detailed tutorial for a while (frankly, an unknown while; could easily be weeks or months). The arrow starts in an otherwise-empty comp, simply moving right to l…
  • @Stargazer54 @NormanPCN @Andy001z Thanks! Very nice job, Andy! I like how you used larger color blocks with smaller studs.  The lion is still pretty recognizable, too. 
  • @Palacono @JMcAllister @tddavis @Triem23 @HitfilmSensei @spydurhank  Thank you all!  
  • To follow up on the renaming tip from @Triem23, renaming entries in the media bin does not rename the original file.  It only changes the name inside of HitFilm.  That said, his comment about renaming the originals before starting the project is spo…
