I'm joining many of you on the HitFilm journey as even though I work for FXHOME (which is utterly amazing) I also hadn't had any experience in post production up until this point.
It's through using HitFilm at work and helping you guys out with it that I've become really intrigued.
I'm hoping to have the time to experiment with HitFilm 2 Ultimate more and more as time goes on, so I thought I'd put the experiments up as I go. The best thing about this community is that you're all so generous with your feedback and knowledge, so it would be great if you could teach ME a little bit about how to make my own stuff better.
This one I did in a couple of days, stealing odd moments - it's based on Creative Dojo's tutorial (found here
) which is much better than mine, but is still a great watch if you want to learn a few things. I took mine in a different direction, as you can see and tried to keep it to 8 seconds.
I'm still not happy with it - this was my first attempt at using emitter maps and so adding the particles on top seemed like a fun and sparkly thing to do, but it doesn't quite work. The light in the text also comes in too soon and lingers for too long afterward, making the last 4 seconds boring. I'd appreciate feedback! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jdcx5hD8oZQ&feature=youtu.be
