  •  I moved all Hitfilm caches etc. to a RAM drive (restarted it so they would work) and ran a tracking test. It was exactly the same speed, both playing from RAM drive and from the HDD Went into Resource Manager and watched what was happening as I …
  • @CedricBonnier OK. I'll check that out..... Hmmm...still like a keypress as double click doesn't always work. Actually spent about a minute thinking it didn't work at all, then it started working, then it stopped again, then it started again and no…
  •  Just so it's where someone might make a note of it, or +1 or -1 it... Regarding the new Mask selection/movement implementation: Add a keyboard shortcut that will: a) Select all the points of the mask - as if a box was dragged around them all (ne…
  • @DannyDev You watched the video? I'm in the wrong mode? OK, so as I finally understand it: to move the whole shape (which is what happens more than moving points when I roto) I have two choices: 1) Turn on Keyframes for Position, Scale and Rotate…
  • @DannyDev  "Nothing has been removed. I say again. NOTHING HAS BEEN REMOVED." Does SHOUTING make you any more correct? In HFE2017 when you turn on keyframing on Path it creates a keyframe. Then you scrub forward and make any change and w…
  • @Triem23 But you could already, always do all that... Just to check: I just did it and created a little arrow with a mask on a plane in HFE2017, cut'n'pasted the tracking path directly from a tracking point on a video clip, moved the anchor point …
  • @CedricBonnier Re: your point about rotation: no, you didn't need to use the Transform>Rotation in the controls panel to rotate a mask shape in HF2017 or earlier; you just hold down ALT when you select a mask box corner and rotate it with that. S…
  •  @CedricBonnier It appears as if the position component has just been removed from Path 'keyframes'. Is there anything else? What can we now do that we couldn't before with this new method? We were told before that Path 'markers' weren't 'proper…
  • Not required, although you will need to reactivate Hitfilm and Plugins after the swap. I just upgraded my CPU and had the same issue. It reverts to demo mode but thinks it's activated. So just deactivate it, reactivate it and all is well. Had to d…
  • Nice progression. To explain my comment about the split: 2D things split; paper, paintings, etc. so it tended to suggest to me that it was forming from something flat rather than in 3D space. But, you're right in that: when we see it against a movi…
  • This isn't a new request, it's a few years old but as each new release fails to address it, it seems it needs re-adding to the list. For the Matte Cleaner Effect to have all of the effective ranges (but especially the Smooth parameter) expanded by …
  • It's a weird, and annoying omission, because if you use Mocha for tracking, it'll quite happily track a composite shot. If you use any kind of lens correction for GoPro camera footage you can't use the tracking data after you've corrected it, nor ca…
  •  Yep, it's broken in HFE8.
  • If @Triem23 can't get that fixed, then no chance anyone else will. I've been told things would be one way that are flatly contradicted by the actual release, including those options to select Quality and Resolution as buttons on the viewer surround.…
  • It's always done that. The mask is part of the text layer, so when it moves the mask moves with it. See lots of tutorials on how to do text 'reveals' on YouTube, where you use a second Layer for the mask and the Set Matte effect to use it with the…
  • Looks great. My only notes would be: it starts as a narrow slit, then becomes almost perfectly round, then closes as a slightly distorted circle, none of which are quite like the original. I prefer the more distorted closing shape and think that s…
  • @Triem23 Yep, Vegas is a bit of a mess - look in the registry and you'll still see lots of Sony key names used for Vegas 14 and 15 - but I've still got plugins bundled with Vegas 11 that work fine in 15. Only NewBlue stopped at 12 and that was becau…
  • @Triem23 If that's even slightly the reason: that's not an equal trade IMO. All versions of Vegas Movie Studio and Pro retain all my Presets and most (except where bundles are locked to a specific release) of my Plugins work with all of them as well…
  • @Triem23 I'm sure you're right. The other thing though is: there is now only one version of Hitfilm, so 8 overwrote 7 when it was installed. As the parenting of 2D layers to a 3D layer changed from 2017 to 2018 (the wrong way I still think, but I lo…
  • What's slightly baffled me (doesn't take much... )is that after only a few incremental "updates" - which were still within the 12 months period since Hitfilm "2018" first came out with the '12 months of updates' model - we're now on an entirely new…
  • Are you saving the clip in Hitfilm? You can keep Hitfilm open, you just need to save it for Vegas to know to update it.
  • For both the Speed Effect and the Rate/Duration option to have toggles for Frame Blending on/off. By all means default to what they are now for backwards compatibility, but provide the option to choose to select the opposite.
  • Speed Effect always blends  frames: No option to turn off. Rate/Duration never blends  frames: No option to turn on. Obviously I always want the opposite of what is available in each method. If I'm using keyframes I don't always (pretty much never)…
  • The DJI/Ryze Tello would be a reasonable start. It's fairly easy to use, stable and fairly cheap and produces EIS 720p video, which is adequate quality, although only back to the phone it was recorded on, so can have dropouts and the bitrate is quit…
  •  No, slow yaw should not take you too far out. You can currently do a full 360 spin on the spot in about 1 second. Way too fast. Unless you're racing you don't need that.  It's why the Mavic has Tripod Mode. Try that too. How long would it take to …
  • You need to turn down the EXP on your Yaw control and be aware really early when you are drifting off track, so you can slowly correct with the Yaw in time. Make your Yaw EXP control so slow it feels almost useless. It'll still be too fast. Same app…
  • TBH, I didn't (consciously) notice the choice of music, although it may also have been a factor. I usually watch tutorial videos on x2 or x1.5 and only back up and slow down when required, so sped up music sounds a) more upbeat and b) easier to igno…
  • I thought the tutorial, results and idea were all brilliant, but the presentation wasn't up to your usual 'jokey' standard. It seemed a little downbeat in a few places and I couldn't really hear the smile in your voice. "I wasn't happy..." "Altho…
  • I thought it was just excellent in every way. Only really minor (microscopic even) notes I'd have were dialogue : "Yesterday, I successfully landed the ship". With the slight rising inflection the emphasis seems (to my ears) to be on the ship and …
  • Why not have Hitfilm indicate which media was used with a little dot in the corner of the thumbnail? Why not have thumbnails in the format that you'll find in 99.999% of other editing programs, rather than taking up a lot of space with nothing usefu…
