Hi everyone. I've seen a discussion about importing key-frames and some brilliant work-arounds people have implemented. Action Pro would give a method now to import CSV as key-frames. But not as individual and independent points.
I have some astronomical simulations and animations I do for education and science at an astronomy research institute. I have access to a database where I can grab an x,y,z coordinates (actually polar, and I have to convert).
Any idea if it's possible to use a CSV data file (let's just say 100 points) and import each as a point, wherein I can then parent a "star light" to each of them?
Honestly, if I could pull that off, that's something I would be willing to share. It exists in custom software here, and some other video software that cannot export those values into HitFilm (go figure).
That would be ingenious! I am using it as a background as opposed to fly-through. It would be freaking incredible to be able to pull in 1000+ objects as background stars (if anyone knows what GAIA is).
Otherwise, I create an artificial star system background either from a 2D image or particle simulator. I have a number of animations I'd love to do that for. If anyone has a way, I would post a sample created in HitFilm.
