New activity?  You mean like yoga or pilates?  So confused what should be done with this space. I guess it's kinda like a user's "wall" on Facebook.  I can share random commentary about stuff I'm doing (which, sadly, I mostly can't).  Others can write here as well, but it's not private.  Interesting.

  • Licensing issues aside, auto-playing any audio on a web site is strongly discouraged, and has been for quite a while, long before this article from 2012 was written listing the key reasons (though frankly #4 probably isn't much of a concern any more…
  • Definitely big on fun! 
  • @The_Blupper I'm aware of the type of proxies that the OP mentions, but I still don't see what that has to do with grouping videos together in HitFilm.  When people typically ask about grouping videos, they want to connect several items on the timel…
  •  @Itsallanact If I understand you correctly, you're working on several projects in HitFilm, but only one is exhibiting this behavior.  Is that right?  If so, that sounds like a corrupted project file, but only the devs will (might) have any idea how…
  • @ChrisSilovsky I haven't had that experience.  Can you reliably repeat the steps that trigger this type of crash?  If so, definitely send your findings to HitFilm via a support ticket (the "Ask our team" link at the bottom of the support page that @…
  • @Triem23 This thread should be merged with the one in the Techniques and Questions category. @JeffreyHand Please don't post the same question into multiple categories. It just creates forum clutter when people start giving different answers in diff…
  • @Jacob_Sct I'm not sure what this has to do with proxies, but HitFilm does not currently provide a way to link/group multiple timeline elements across various tracks in the Editor timeline.  
  • @JacobBrooks HitFilm doesn't necessarily need a different color to track.  It just needs an area of detail with enough contrast that it can follow its movement between frames.  Search YouTube for "HitFilm tracking" and you'll find lots of tutorials …
  • I really didn't expect (or hope) for this thread to turn into an Apple bashing session.  It's unfortunate that some have had bad experiences with the Mac platform, but that doesn't apply to everyone.  My experience since switching from Windows to …
  • Ah. I saw that tip from @Triem23 above, and somehow thought that your latest test incorporated that.
  • @KynieMylle In addition to the tip above, one reason for a "disk I/O error" is a full hard drive.  You said that there's no more room on your C drive, so that could be the problem.  Unless you're choosing the destination folder when you export, my g…
  • "What did you think of the shots, camera angles, light and colours?" All good IMO.  I definitely liked the difference in lighting in the Farmers Anon. piece compared to the rest.  The way you used color and contrast to emphasize the emotional traum…
  • It looks a little better, but you still have the issue of the model moving through the particle texture, rather than the particles moving with the model.  I've got very little experience with both (models and Atomic Particles), and no time to experi…
  • Another test.  The basic light meter look can be done in base Express as well (my initial test was done in Express 2017, I think), but this one is fully automatic based on the sound file, which requires certain features only available in Pro, or via…
  • Fun stuff! Like @JMcAllister , I also got the impression initially that the coffee and fire sketches were connected, but figured out part way through that they were separate.  While cutting between different story lines in a single film can work in …
  • @JorgeValdivia Assuming that you're using the latest version of HitFilm Express (8.1), check your playback and paused quality settings in the viewer's Options menu.  If it's on "Fastest," you won't see the results of many effects.
  • +1 to the suggestion to smooth out the camera keyframes.  Do the same for your Puppet point keyframes and it'll feel even better.
  • This recently came up in the Pro support forum as well. Check there for some tips: https://fxhome.com/forum/discussion/47145/custom-ttf-fonts-missing-in-hitfilm-pro#latest  
  • ProductionCrate has got some elements that might work on their Earthquake FX page. Admittedly they're only available to members with a Pro account, but with the amount of stuff on their site, the Pro account is well worth it if you need those kinds …
  • I've had this occur a few times myself, but not in a predictable way.  Sometimes I can type right away, other times not.  If you manage to find a repeatable set of steps, be sure to submit a support ticket with the details.
  • @thedragonfilmmaker88 Because the model is moving with the help of a point, you could parent the Parallax effect's source texture layer to the same point.  That way the texture moves with the model.  However, this will only work for situations where…
  • @GrayMotion I don't get the impression that Apple is immediately dropping OpenGL with Mojave.  It's just moving to "deprecated" status.  It'll still be there so that software written for it won't flat-out fail, but Metal will be preferred, and devel…
  • Playing around with an idea for a "liquid" lower third in HitFilm Express.  It started fairly simple, but then grew and improved as I kept playing. https://youtu.be/Zl_MImOMT8E
  • Awesome! Glad to know it was an easy fix!
  • Hmmm.  Double-check your project and comp settings, and ensure that they're also set to the square pixel aspect.  If they're all square, then something must be amiss somewhere else. The next thing I would scrutinize would be the dimensions of vario…
  • First off, thanks for such a thorough description of the problem.  While the info from VLC is somewhat useful, a slightly more useful report can be obtained from the MediaInfo application.  If you would, please install that, drop one of your source …
  • @FX_Noob As @tddavis pointed out, CTRL-Z is what you want (Command-Z on Mac).  That's pretty much the universal hotkey combo for Undo, just as CTRL/Command-S is for Save.

  • Unless the footage you're importing was not recorded with a 1.0 (square pixel) aspect ratio, you shouldn't need to change any of the aspect ratio settings in HitFilm, which all default to square.  If you didn't change those settings yourself, then c…
  • @HitFilmer128619 By "jacked up and distorted" (a fairly generic description, and not very helpful for troubleshooting) are you referring to the proportions of the video? It does feel a tad squashed horizontally.  My hunch is that somewhere -- your p…
  • That looks like a bug to me, though you might want to check that you have the latest drivers for your graphics card.  If your drivers are up-to-date and this still occurs, I recommend submitting a support ticket.
