  • @Andy001z That is not really what I mean. I mean that one track only plays when the other one is. @Triem23 Yeah, I think I might have to do this manually, with keyframes on the volume. I forgot about ducking... I wonder if there is a way to kind of…
  • @tddavis Unfortunately, none of those images are facing backwards, which is what I'm looking for (into the cockpit). Those will be very good for other angles though. Those are high quality!
  • Ok, that's fine! I'll just keep searching.
  • @tddavis Oh, cool! Do you remember the website you found those images on?
  • @tddavis - Thanks anyway! Those will definitely be very helpful for different angles and shots of the cockpit during this scene, as well great reference for trying to model one myself. We'll see how that goes.....  Alright! The finished product: …
  • Here is the image I managed to find (without retouching): Most notably, it needs a seat. After some digging, I found that the original trilogy used "Terry Hunter bucket seats." A quick google search gave me this: Also, I found a very good referenc…
  •  @Triem23 - That was what I was going to do, but it would definitely help if they were more accurate to the movie (since there will be a scene with just an empty cockpit, after the person ejects). @tddavis Oh man, the first two links are frustratin…
  • OHHH!! Sweet, thanks!! 
  • @jsbarret - Thanks so much! This works perfectly, and it's exactly what I was looking for. I'll have to watch that lego tutorial again.
  • @DannyDev Sweet! Thanks a ton!
  • OK, thanks for the help. I think I'll just open this specific project in express and export from there.
  • Thanks all! I don't think I'm going to change the two Excaliburs. The sword coming down to meet it was supposed to just be a different sword, but then I forgot and used the same 3d model. It took a really long time to render, though, so I think I'll…
  • @tddavis - Thanks! I forgot to  mention that I haven't done any sound effects yet, but there will be sort of a scrape sound when excalibur is drawn from the stone.
  • Hey everyone! I am thinking about starting a new "studio", called Excalibur Entertainment. I've been trying to make a good intro for a while, and this is what I've come up with: https://youtu.be/G3PzhfRbV60 What do you think?
  • I did a little test to see what I could come up with. This is the bonfire effect layered on top of fractal noise: https://youtu.be/jPic5VWeFZg
  • @jsbarret - Thanks! That's a neat tip for the whip pans. I'll test that out some time this week.
  • Hi everyone! It's been a while, but over break I've been fiddling around with Hitfilm Pro, thanks to the Hitfilm Festive Giveaway. I thought I'd post some quick tests. This was one of my first tests playing around with the particle simulator. It's …
  • Thanks everyone! For me, it seems to only occur when I am working in 3d - whether that is 3d models or particles. What @HitfilmSensei said about switching tabs seems to be working.
  • Never mind  - I can drop this composite shot into another blank one, and it previews correctly.
  • @jsbarret - That is definitely true of you are making a moon terrain, or an alien planet. However, for the book cover, they need to all be the same size, since this is a dried up lake, where convicted boys have to dig holes exactly 5 feet wide and 5…
  • @jsbarret - Thanks for the feedback! I wish I had had more time to work on 438, because I agree with all the things you said. I was up late working on this the day before the contest ended, so it was kind of last minute. For the car shot, I thought …
  • @jsbarret and @Stargazer54 - Thanks! It was a fun project. I've been entering a few contests. The most recent one was the Film Riot one minute shortfilm competition. Here is my entry to that: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KbefErHipPE It was ann…
  • @inScapeDigital - Yeah, I tried that, but it just goes back to 0%. Thanks for the help!
  • Hi guys - I was bored during the weekend, and saw some silly putty, so I decided to whip this out in a couple of hours: https://youtu.be/28Oh66SuQOM What do you think?
  • @Andy001z - Exactly! I actually just finished a rebel cockpit shot: https://youtu.be/CLMHTNRBtFw
  • @Triem23 - Both. School is going to take up a lot of time that I would be working on videos. Since I am really trying to crack down on FOTR, I won't be posting videos because I will be working on the actual movie. @Andy001z - Thanks! It took a whil…
  • Hi everyone! I've been trying to do some serious work on FOTR - I'm nowhere near even halfway done. I've been working on cockpit shots and 3d characters. Here is a test shot I just finished. I animated it in Maya and composited it in Hitfilm. Let me…
  • Hi guys! Since I wont be posting very much, I thought I'd show some of my older work. Here are a few videos that I have done in the past half year or so. First, here is a dream sequence for a shortfilm that I never got around to finishing: https:/…
  • Wow, thanks everyone! I forgot to mention that this was shot on an iPad, so a bunch of the footage doesn't look great. Also, @NormanPCN - I was originally going to have voiceovers, like "They're growing stronger," but as you said, no one really had…
  • @jsbarret - Thanks a lot! All right everyone, I am really excited. As you guys may know, Fall of the Resistance is my Star Wars fan film. When finished, it will probably be about half the length of a feature. After a few months of work, I finally f…
