Did you ever get it installed? I'm having the same issue on my computer. And I've tried EVERYTHING and nothing is allowing the installer to get past the DirectX.
My friend sent me a picture of her on a Segway. I wanted to animate her riding it at the Great Pyramids of Giza, Kilimanjaro, Petra, Jordan and other various dusty places. It's easy enough for me to make her move across the screen, but how do I create a dust trail? I am using Hitfilm Express.
