  • @Palacono "In HFE2017 when you turn on keyframing on Path it creates a keyframe. Then you scrub forward and make any change and what happens? It creates a new keyframe. HF8 does not. " It does. I just tried it. You're in the wrong tool mode. If yo…
  • @Triem23 To clarify, yes the proxy/pre render format is a propriety lossless high performance format developed for HF. Cineform is an excellent format but we had no support for it back when proxies/pre renders were developed.
  • @Palacono " there was no need to remove the position scale and rotation components from Path." Nothing has been removed. I say again. NOTHING HAS BEEN REMOVED. Path points have a position and two bezier handles. Masks have a position, scale and r…
  • @Palacono "The latest "Motion Graphics" updates? Give me a break. What on earth is going on with the Layout Transform Controls? Whatever you do there is overlayed (well... parented) to the layer, but it's not keyframable, so what possible use is it…
  • @HitFilmer128619 8 minutes is not normal. Your machine is supported but it's on the absolute borderline of HitFilm's minimum requirements. The intel HD 4000 is an integrated GPU but is very underpowered. You have 4GB of RAM, at least 2GB of whic…

  • @Triem23 Just to further clarify Cedric's reply, caching (as referred to in the Options panel tab) in HF is limited to: audio conformance files (HF requires all audio streams to be converted to the project bit rate before they can be used) wave…
  • @Andy001z "You know I am going to say it, but do you really need a notebook/laptop , you WILL get more for your money with a desktop pc" I'm not sure this is true anymore due to the price of GPUs being driven up by crypto mining.
  • This is coming up so often that I think we need a pinned FAQ/topic explaining it.
  • @Jfrog The vast majority of Express users do not purchase packs and do not upgrade to Pro so the additional license costs would have to be burdened by Pro users. Also, the fees increase with the user base; more users, higher fees.

  • @Jfrog "it is sad to take financial decision base on the fact that the Hitfilm express community don't want to pay for it. " HitFilm Express may be free to end uses but it's neither free to develop nor license; the licensing costs of the technolog…

  • @fatpug124 Error 28 indicates a file issue, possibly permissions or lack of disk space. This error is emitted before any export settings are supplied - it cannot create the mpeg container on disk. Is there an .mp4 file with the same name on the e…
  • @Audiocave2  Even resizing UI panels stops playback which is unique and (if I may politely suggest) extremely annoying when working real time.  It's a major impediment to workflow. The reason for this is that code responsible for playback only 'kn…
  • @Triem23 Slight correction, the only iterations of HF that were ever produced over a two year cycle were HF2 and HF3, both of which were major updates: this included the Mac version and a major rewrite of the UI. Every version since then has been …
  • @Simiancro When you purchase a license for HF Pro, you're entitled to 12 months of free updates, none of which you are required to install. This is actually is much, much better deal for the end user as you will now have access to updates througho…
  •  @NormanPCN This feature was added in HitFilm 3. I have no control over the documentation I'm afraid.
  •  @Triem23 @MSo Slight clarification.  Relink simply points an existing media asset to another file on disk. It's only really intended for replacing files like-for-like (e.g. an .mp4 with another .mp4). But there's another feature, replace, that …
  • Playback is stopped to prevent invalidation of the source media/project data by the user while it is in use. There are some exceptions, such as when using the audio mixer controls, but only because we had to engineer in specific use cases. I agree …
  • @DIY_Film_Guy Right click on the task (or tasks) that you want to re order and use the Force Start action in the contextual menu. The task(s) will be moved to the top of the pending queue and automatically started.
  • @Palacono "Interesting.... just checked in HF6 and DannyDev (or someone else) did what he threatened to do in that thread: removed the one performance enhancing "option" we had available.  This was a bug. We looked into it here specifically when y…
  • We've noticed in the office that Macs consistently out perform newer Windows PCs, despite running on much older hardware (sometimes, very, very old hardware). I can only assume that it is a combination of higher quality components and more tightly …
  • @FXhomer200696 "Doesn't Hit Film 2017 come with 12 months of free updates?" HitFilm Pro 2017, released in November 2016, had 7 free updates, the last of which was in July 2017. At no point did we say that there would be 12 months of three updates …
  • 'bad allocation' is out of memory. Try reducing the resolution and/or bit depth of your project.
  • Is this an effect in a live action scene? If not, could you use a normal size chain, painted to create a rust effect, in a scene with a mini back yard and tiny dog house?
  • This should be fixed in the update we pushed today.
  • Sorry I can't comment on when updates will be released for the reasons Triem has already given.
  • Bug confirmed. Will be fixed in an update - thanks for the report.
  • Have you tried the Paste Attributes feature? Select the layer containing the keyframes, then from the right click menu, choose Copy. Then select the other layers that you want to copy the keyframes too. From the right click menu choose Paste Attri…
  • @JMcAllister  Action Pro is written in an entirely different language and uses a different framework. Traditionally, Wine, like most virtualisation layers, lacked access to the GPU which HitFilm depends on, which was a problem back when H…
  • Unfortunately this sounds like a problem with the BCC plugin which is beyond our control. I suggest raising a support ticket anyway.
  • @mabian No features have been dropped/removed in the latest version of HF Pro. If third party plugins are not showing up then either (a) your copy of HF has not been activated or (b) there is an issue with your installation.
