I have never made one but I'll see if I can.  We had severe storms and tornadoes roll through the area last night so I missed this until now.  Sorry about that.

  • @Sneechy  For that CG character they simply generated it with a transparent background then used a few effects to mask it with a white plane, I think?  Are you talking about taking capture footage of a game and trying to isolate a character…
  • Okay, thanks.  I'm using the 1060 6 GB and was wondering about moving up.
  • @Triem23  What is the difference in a 1070 and 1070TI?  Did some poking around after reading this thread earlier but I am not versed enough to follow.
  • I plus one Andy001z's note about the scale, but the shadow looked good to me.  The sun seems to be coming from low on the left and other shadows are skewing to the right, but I agree with DafterThings about heat distortion and smoke though.
  • @Andersen01498 Let me check my Express version to see if Hitfilm tracking is available.  Okay, so Hitfilm tracking is available but I'm not sure about Mocha data being imported.  One would think that camera data is camera data but I don't know.  It'…
  • @SolidSnake2003   You should be able to use Hitfilm's tracker to do that.  That's what I used the one time I got it to stabilize but I'm gonna let @Andersen01498 take you through that because I suck at tracking, but I know it IS possible to…
  • @Andersen01498  I do have Hitfilm Pro 8.0 and Mocha Hitfilm, but tracking is the bane of my existence! ! !  I have successfully track (and stabilized)  footage one time and that was with step by step instructions from Triem23.  I've tried t…
  • @Andersen01498  I took a peek at your PNG sequence and you did an incredible job!  I wouldn't have a clue how to even start something like that.
  • @SolidSnake2003  No, I would not think it's bad to ask, but it might be a bit before someone with the knowledge to do it has a chance to think about giving it a whirl.  Especially the tutorial guys who stay covered up with their projects, a…
  • @ZachAlan_Productions  Looks really good.  I can't recall exactly what it looked like in the movie but that certainly is fine substitute if it's off a little bit.  Good job.
  • @CIKiller  it sounds to me like you need to look at the playback settings under  the OPTIONS tab at the top of the preview window.  I'm not 100% sure this was added to Express but it has been a feature of the new Pro so I'm betting it was a…
  • @AlDinelt  Hey, welcome to the Hitfilm world.  I'm tddavis over on the Lost in Space board and you were kind enough to loan me your Jupiter 2 model to play with.  I don't import the models directly into Hitfilm often; usually I render them …
  • @RingkunMori  You can remove the older version if you wish but it is not an absolute.  It is possible (Hard drive space permitting) to have multiple versions of Hitfilm installed at the same time.  This is a useful thing if you are trying t…
  • Away from the computer today and on my phone, wouldn't you know it?. I can hardly wait to get home so I can download and install this terrific-sounding update and play, play, play! @Triem23 Looks like the logo got an update too...at least on my pho…
  • Are you using the newest version of Hitfilm Pro?  There were some settings added to it for paused quality, playback quality and playback resolution in the preview under OPTIONS tab.  It sounds like this is what's going on.  But if you are not on Hit…
  • @DafterThings  I did this one time using legos for project and had enormous amounts of trouble just like you.  After all was said and done, what I finally decided was that I was lighting it the way I would a full size scene with the small w…
  • @Juda1  While the ball doesn't have that 3D effect to it, I think as a transitional item it works beautifully.  And knowing that you created it solely in Hitfilm makes it all the more impressive.  Overall, the video was an excellent job in …
  • I especially like the table top close movement.
  • @JacobSct  Well, damnation!  So brutally simple and brilliant.  I do not believe I have ever seen that trick talked about before on youtube.  Good job.  I sure never woukd have thought of it.
  • @JeffBeresford   looks very, very nice.  Totally deserving the music accompaniment.  I love your vintage photos for your project.  And I do hope you are thinking about doing some sort of step by step of your process.
  • @Triem23 I find the new one more interesting than the initial test as well.
  • @sciotti   And is it also possible to change single Frames/Pictures when imported in the Timeline? Yes, I think so, but it's a little fiddly.   Import the images as individual media instead of a sequence and drop them into the editor (…
  • @inScapeDigital is the handle that Javert uses in the Hitfilm notification system if I'm not mistaken.
  • @NicholasHawkins   Well, drat.  I had hoped that would be the issue.  One of the mods or other gurus may have much better ideas.  They should catch up to your thread soon.  Sorry I couldn't be of more help for you. You also might want to g…
  • @NicholasHawkins  I'm a user like you and not a tech guru, but I'm just guessing here that you might need to lower the resolution in your preview window from FULL down to HALF or even QUARTER.  This happens when Hitfilm is trying render som…
  • @Triem23  Sweet!  Watched it 3 times and I still have trouble deciding what is filmed and what's VFX beyond the graphic hologram. Very seamless.
  • @PCook676  Yes, you can install both Express and Pro at the same time but only one can run at any one time.
  • @Davlon  Yeah, I had the old reliable version.  Went to store and got the new one with the black bkg.  It is handy on selecting your font.  But either one is a handy tool to have.

  • @4KMAX  I can only tell you that I have no problems running Hitfilm Pro 7.1 with an 8 core AMD, 32 gb ram and an NVIDIA GT 1060 (6gb).  I would think tge 1080 woukd be better still, but I can't say what the best card would be. 
  • @Davlon  I am running Windows 10 but it is installed with Windows.  Is that the same one as the Store version?
