Yes, yes, I DID put two cameras on my own wedding, as well as an external audio recorder for board feed. Sorted my camera footage on 3 and 4--dropped event markers and split the audio into mono tracks. Getting cameras 1 and 2 from videographer tomorrow, along with her audio, so I'll bounce everything through Pluraleyes for her to synch everything, then pass it back for the edit. (What? Can't EDIT my own wedding! I'd be sick of looking at it before watching it with by bride!)

  • @PhilTanny the Puppet tool will never become a morph tool--but, coding a Puppet tool is ALSO the first step towards a Morph tool, as well as Liquify. All three type of effects first tessellate an image then distort it using control points. The diff…
  • @Andy001z well, the short version is the tool is converting the bitmap layer into a 2d triangle-polygon structure. The "Edit" settings let the user adjust the tessellation of the image (increase/decrease polys as needed). Once control points are add…
  • @CedricBonnier never dealt with a M/S stereo file before? They don't come up that often in the video realm. Assuming you're unfamiliar, here's a good article on what it is and how it works. https://www.dpamicrophones.com/mic-university/principles-…
  • @LiamMcM1 don't make the team work that hard! ;-) Just updated the document--click the link in the first post for the updated version.
  • @RedLudo23 if you already have the tools and knowledge to convert the audio to normal stereo, try that and see if that solves the issue. Be sure to let us know here!
  • I think we can agree it's work in progress, as its workflow changed after the tutorial.  
  • @NormanPCN @Aladdin4d @CedricBonnier MediaInfo's report above gives audio as 2-channel, Front, Left/Right. Looks like the audio might be mid/side, not normal stereo. Could that be the issue? Luke, I tagged two of the most knowledgeable dudes on the…
  • @LiamMcM1 well, Flicker was in the old Starter pack. Now it's on of the lighting packs. They really shuffled the add-ons this year--I'm sure those were all long meetings... 
  • @LiamMcM1 if you upgrade to Pro your packs are still linked to your Express. Pro, of course, has everything in all packs, plus a few more features. 
  • When referring to "points" I was referring to point layers, not masking points. Yes, "comp" is shorthand for "composite shot." No video tutorials exist (yet) for the "roto plane" method I outlined above.  For tracking, and applying tracks to poin…
  • Just gets better and better! 
  • @St3v3C Hitfilm Express v8 is the first Express version where Win 8 is lowest  recommended OS. For Pro this was v6 last November. Up until last week you WERE on a supported OS. I don't think anyone's reported any real issues on Win 7. Also, when H…
  • @NormanPCN for the moment I'm using "Final" as the test because some of the multiple people "reporting" this issue are discussing lights, reflections and/or motion blur. But, yes, "Fastest" is the only one that turns off effects. That is why I've po…
  • @Stargazer54 if the portal is an embedded comp shot he could duplicate it, scale it up a few percent, mute it... Add a Grade layer above the BG and use the hidden layer to drive a Set Matte to choke a Heat Distortion or something. Very quick to set…
  • Nope, checking the Pro demo is recommended. You won't be able to use Mocha or Boris (licensing thing) or export anything, but you can certainly play around. 
  • No.  Here's how Hitfilm works: GPU is idle. CPU reads source frames from video and decompresses frame.  CPU passes data to GPU. CPU goes idle.  GPU generates VFX filters and compositing then renders final frane.  GPU passes back frame to CPU.…
    in Cpu usage Comment by Triem23 May 15
  • Out of curiosity, what are your system specs? CPU, GPU, OS RAM and storage?  Are your GPU drivers current? Next thing to try is viewer settings. There's an Options drop down, upper right corner of the Viewer Panel. Open that, look for Paused and P…
  • It's been done, but that type of thread always disappears several pages down in a week or so. :-D Nice of you to do it again. Hi, Duran, welcome to the Hitfilm forums. If you have questions, bring 'em in, we'll try to answer them. We all learn and …
    in Introduction Comment by Triem23 May 15
  • No worries. The new viewer quality feature is tripping up a lot of users. We've had one or two threads a day for the last week where that was the "issue." Glad you're up and running again.
  • THat is true!
  • How is your final comp set up? Let me assume that the portal itself is an embedded comp in a "final" comp and the background plate is below the portal comp. So, you're getting some minor dark edges at the edges of the portal. Demult and Luma Key ca…
  • @colamanBS glad you liked the metaphor. ;-) @LiamMcM1 while add-ons do move forward with Express updates, if one went back to, say, this thread: https://fxhome.com/forum/discussion/43783/comparing-hitfilm-express-2017-to-hfe-4-and-pro-2017-the-defi…
  • Embed your text in a comp shot before adding puppet. Text layers are a little odd since they are actually plane layers with masks applied in the shape of the text. With the Puppet Tool transparency needs to be baked in before adding the puppet. Thi…
  • @headshinsky this is unlikely to happen. Even according to webm's own developers webm is based on VP8 (which doesn't support transparency), and adding alpha channels to webm was tricky to do. Webm alpha channels are only supported in Chrome and requ…
  • You need to roto, but instead of masking the original layer you want to create a matte using another layer.  Create a white plane. Make it larger than the comp. Put it above the game footage, set its opacity to about 40%. Turn it off for now.  C…
  • Terry, what are your full specs? CPU, GPU, OS, RAM and storage?  You say your CPU doesn't have an integrated GPU? That would mean your CPU is either under an i3 (below minimum spec) or older than 2012. This could be the issue.  Hitfilm uses CPU fo…
  • @inScapeDigital thanks. I'll make certain I tag @DannyDev correctly in the future (and deleted Danny77 from autocorrect). @NormanPCN I also get the big circle. We're both Nvidia GPUs I think. I'm a 980m, I think you're a 1070? I think we're both Wi…
  • Oh boy, I'll have to look back at what I did if I can find the three year old project. I'll also need to re-watch Kraemer's tutorial. Long story short, Hitfilm's lightning had different parameters than Ae's you can get a similar look, but you can't…
  • @triforcefx gives good notes here, so this is more a pedantic correction.  A primary reason green is used to key is the physics of optics. Green happens to be in the middle of the visible light range. Both the human eye and a digital sensor can per…
