I have never made one but I'll see if I can.  We had severe storms and tornadoes roll through the area last night so I missed this until now.  Sorry about that.

  • @maneo11   Story of my life.  Glad you got it worked out.  
  • Not a problem.  I see it come up quite often or I would still be scratching my head about it.
  • @JMcAllister    I admit it.  I've been a "conspriacithist" since the late 70s.
  • @joenha  I'm going to guess that the new preview/playback settings might have changed when you reinstalled.  Hitfilm now has setting that control the quality of the playback, when paused, etc. and in some cases it mutes effects in the previ…
  •  Ah, of course, it totally escaped me.
  • @rosickness12  The easiest way that I know of is unlink your scale x and y and change to minus whatever value the x is to flip horizontally and the y alone.  But if it's upside down and reversed skip unlink the scale and set both to a negat…
  • @jsbarrett  I agree with your gut 100 %.  I have long suspected that there is concerted effort by a competing software manufacturer to take every opportunity to try and run Hitfilm down, and the sad part is if they put half the effort into …
  • @Stargazer54  Thanks, much appreciated.  It needs a few tweaks for sure and a better image to generate the "particles".  My drawing skills are as weak as my tracking and particle systems.  If Tony hadn't made it such an easy recipe to follo…
  • Doh!  It  never occurred to me from the showing on last frame it was when paused.  I feel so...noobie.
  • @itsme_timd  Watching the video, it looks like they are keyframing the color changes.  Have you perhaps, activated the key frame (the blue circle beside the effect) at the end of the clip?  If you just want to change it for the whole clip d…
  • @Hitfilmer128619  I'm not sure that it would give the results you want, but it certainly would be an interesting experiment.  One thing I thought that might help is to angle the light so that instead of bouncing off the wall so much it boun…
  • @Triem23  Yes, it was the tutorial from Tony Cee.  I realized my wording was less than clear so I edited it to make it more apparent.  I am thinking of trying Jay's method this weekend.
  • https://youtu.be/oeZOJVeCak8   Saw a tutorial by Tony Cee in another thread created by @AlDinelt about 2001 style effects and thought I'd step outside my usual box and give it a go.  It's not the most of the mostest, but it was a fun little exerci…
  • @MarvinVenusian   Could you possibly duplicate your layer and apply a diffuse blur to the entire copy then use the masking tool and feathering edges to hide the areas?  Those masks woukd be adjustable with the path key frame.
  • @Hitfilmer128619  Okay, I tried but I'm afraid I didn't do very much good.  Here is a export of what I managed to do and also a screen cap of the settings I played with.  I previously tried Curves but didn't have good luck there.  Hope this…
  • @Hitfilmer128619  Image looks pretty good to me, but I am assuming you are talking about the highlight on the right side of your forehead?  That should be able to be fixed fairly well.  I'll see what setting I can some up with, but keep in …
  • @ThatGuyBrian  Looks good!  Is that your model?  If so, it is really nicely detailed.  Even if not, you did a fantastic job dialing in the material settings.
  • @ColamanBS  I believe if you hold down Ctrl (on a PC) when you drag a clip from the media bin to the time line it leaves the audio behind.
  • @saltyylemon  Without seeing an image of exactly what black bars you mean, I can only guess you mena the letterboxing at the top and bottom.  This would be handled by changing the size of your project to only be large enough for the area wi…
  • @DafterThings  FWIW I took that course and it was very interesting and fun.  It's the only time I have ever had a play with stop motion which you will ace that exercise hands down if you sign up for the course.
  • @Triem23  Thanks for the clarification.  I would have totally bollocksed that up   Time to have a go at trying to move a CG figure of my 2nd oldest grandson from about 14 years ago now!
  • @jsbarrett  Hey, thanks for that image.  IT helped me to understand what I wasn't following about rigidity maps.  I copy and archived those instructions and image for future use.  I do have one follow up question; does the rigidity map need…
  • I had the same issue when I was playing with on a human model figure.  I had zero luck figuring it out.  Great photo btw!  It gives that sculpture an eerie vibe. And I thought the legs movement looked good.
  • Just dropping in an additional benefit, you can still save your project and later, after you have decided that PRO may be the best option for you, you can reload it and render then.
  • Congratulations.  I only have seen the part from before Christmas but it was super effective.  I'll have to check out the whole thing when I back on the computer. Edit: @TimStannard  Still super effective, and more complete.  Very good wor…
  • @Sneechy  Most likely roto.  I made a mistake though.  I thought that segment where the figure was on black background then they used a Set Matte effect to fade in the white part was taking place in the game and was just captured by someone…
  • @Sneechy  For that CG character they simply generated it with a transparent background then used a few effects to mask it with a white plane, I think?  Are you talking about taking capture footage of a game and trying to isolate a character…
  • Okay, thanks.  I'm using the 1060 6 GB and was wondering about moving up.
  • @Triem23  What is the difference in a 1070 and 1070TI?  Did some poking around after reading this thread earlier but I am not versed enough to follow.
  • I plus one Andy001z's note about the scale, but the shadow looked good to me.  The sun seems to be coming from low on the left and other shadows are skewing to the right, but I agree with DafterThings about heat distortion and smoke though.
