  • First. Don't use constant bitrate. Nothing told you to use CBR and Hitfilm defaults to VBR. VBR is better and that is why Hitfilm defaults to it. As for motion blur. It does not look like you have any motion. Stuff moving in the frame is not "motio…
  • Is it burry on the Youtube result? Burry on your export? If yes here, then what were your export settings. Blurry in the viewer? All of the above? Youtube compresses the hell out of footage. At time index 48s that is around a fade transition…
  • Almost nobody RTFM, and they don't read FAQs or stickies either. One thing you can do is make sure your sticky/faq is complete enough and always answer questions by pointing to the sticky/faq. Don't keep typing the same thing over and over. I've tro…
  • We need to know what the contents of your problem files are. MP4 or MOV means nothing. A full text report from the free MediaInfo utility software can be posted here. In general on Mac don't worry about MOV verses MP4. The Quicktime/video subsystem…
  • @iFang This comment from this thread. January 2017 I'll add a link to some ffmpeg Windows scripts that can be used to do easy transcoding to DNxHD, DNxHR and Prores. The ZIP has a contained readme text file. https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B0Ns3…
  • @iFang "Is there any open source software that will convert a MP4 h.264 file to MOV ProRes or Cineform?" ??? Yes. Seriously, read this thread.  
  • @Triem23 Untrue. Hitfilm does not have Quicktime support built-in. By that I mean supporting any installable Quicktime codec or other native Quicktime codecs. What Hitfilm does support is AVC in MOV files and Prores in MOV files. Nothing else. Any…
  • http://fxhome.com/reference-manuals/hitfilm-pro#options.htm
  •  "Does this mean that Hitfilm is less efficient than other programs?" Pretty much yes. Depends on what your compare against and doing exactly what. Blanket statement without specifics are not terribly useful. For example, on specifics, Vegas on Nvi…

  • You have to do the full download process to have the current version of Express activated in your account. You can check your account right now to see if Express 8 is in there. By full DL process I mean; click the download link, click the social med…
  • "This is confirmed as I played back a project in 60 fps in a prior version with no stuttering between cuts, now watching the same project at 60 fps with version 8, and the playback is completely riddled with stuttering." Exact same project? If not …
  • Not an original idea. Speaking directly to Cineform RAW.  Heck Prores itself was not an original idea. Speaking directly to DNx. Of course Avid had DNx proprietary and Apple responded in kind. Since it is Mother Apple, many will flock to it, even …
  • This thread has a bunch of transitions that provided in template form. This can save some time and/or be illustrative about how you create such things. https://fxhome.com/forum/discussion/43879/i-made-some-transitions-free-to-use To be blunt, thin…
  • It does not have to be Final for effects to show/function. Effects just have to be enabled. Final enables other things which can be really slow. Like motion blur. If you have not changed the Options, then Fastest is the only quality setting that di…
  • This has happened to someone from time to time. It is normally a glitch in the Boris licensing setup that a re-install of Hitfilm often fixes. Why not do an uninstall and then a reinstall. If you are adventurous... you can check these after the uni…
  • Hitfilm is unable to fully load the CPU or GPU in most circumstances during export due to how it's pipeline operates. Some encoders are single threaded as well. Sadly is appears Cineform export/encode is single threaded from a quick look in version…

  • Using the Pro demo to test some effects to see if they can get you want you are looking for is the way to go. The Pro demo cannot render/export at all so no cheating. Looking at 100% in the viewer at a final/full quality setting should let you evalu…
  • @JMcAllister Ahh, so the dialog is modeless. Strange. I never actually tried to unfocus the dialog. I've just mentally treated the dialog as model.
  • Looks to be working on my machine. Windows 10, i7 4770k, 16GB, GTX 1080 driver 397.64
  • So it seems to be a bit of a Norman machine thing. For me still the same with driver 397.64 (current). At first glance, Extrude seems to be fine so long as it is before Bend in the geometry list. After Bend, Extrude seems to be Mute.
  • The error dialog is just an indication of an exception that was trapped. An exception that was not expected or one that cannot be handled without issue. That you can continue is simply an indication of the trapped exception. They are still running a…
  • I am with @Triem23 that Cineform Medium is worth evaluating. Even if targeting high quality distribution like Blu-ray. To repeat, camera source must always be taken into account. Otherwise Cineform High should be good. If my media comes over a netw…
  • Ignite Express has nothing to do with Hitfilm Express. Hitfilm Express does not use Ignite Express. Hitfilm Express already has all the effects in Ignite Express. Ignite Express is for use in editor software other than Hitfilm.
  • "File size isn't a huge issue since the storage is temporary and I'm in the process of setting up a NAS, so quality is my priority here." File size can very much be an issue. Not so much in size of space but bitrate of delivery for decode. Remember…
  • Yup, that master transcode thread has info and should link to all the others. Such as VirtualDub and my fast decode AVC.
  • Use Cineform. DNxHD will require you to install and use Quicktime and it is not as fast as Cineform in Hitfilm as well. Unfortunately ffmpeg does not have a Cineform encoder. Virtualdub might be the best choice here. Of course if Hitfilm can read y…
  • FxHome could clear about what does and does not need Quicktime. Prores in Quicktime MOV files is natively supported for import. Cineform is natively supported in Windows AVI and Quicktime MOV. Import and Export. AVC/H.264 is natively supported in…
  • You do not have to configure anything. Just  run Hitfilm. It will just as many cores as it is able to when it is able to.
  • Your action cam 59.94 fps media will not be slowed down when you place it on a 24 fps timeline. What Hitfilm does is throw away some of the extra frames to match the  slower frame rate. It only uses 24 of the original 59.94 frames per second. This p…
  • The media from a phone is 99.99% probably variable frame rate (VFR). While Hitfilm tries to support VFR, it's implementation has issues. Most editors don't even try to support VFR. The issue in Hitfilms VFR implementation is such that repeated frame…
