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.

  • As I mentioned when replying to the comment you left on my blog, I can't share the project file for my version because the assets I used require a Pro account on ProductionCrate. I can't give that stuff away for free, and sharing the project without…
  • This may be a tad tricky (and I'm just spitballing the idea without testing due to time constraints), but one workaround would be to leave the bent text layer as 2D instead of 3D, and duplicate it. Put one layer above the earth layer, and one below …
  • @Palacono makes a good point. If your camera isn't moving, then you don't need to track anything. Just key out the green, and put your other content on layers below the main one.
  • @TxH003 "However, to basically, advise other users to deal with it because the matter does not impact me, is rather counter-productive to the said end-result." I'm sorry if "deal with it because the matter does not impact me" is what was inferred …
  • @Wilderbeast I'm guessing he means that you should click the triangle next to the Masks entry to view the masks on the layer, then click the triangle on the mask to dive into its contents, continuing until you can see the Transform properties. This …
  • @260szalssa What are your system specs? OS, CPU, GPU, RAM, and hard drive. With a bigger project, you may be hitting the limitations of your system, but it could also be a specific effect causing the problem. Does the export stop at the same point …
  • Side note: you can edit your posts so you don't have to re-post the same thing multiple times (guessing you did that to figure out how to get the image to show up).  To edit the first post in a thread, you have to go back to the thread list for a gi…

  • Haha! Very fun, and a great job with the comp.
  • Exactly my point. People putting in request after request for markers? I've learned to live with that.  But that's not what some people are doing, and the "how the hell can you edit" question above is a tame example.  IIRC, there have been posts whe…
  • FWIW, I was specifically addressing the "how the hell you can edit film without using marker?" question posed by @MacChen. I totally get that some people love them, and I've learned to mostly keep my mouth shut when the topic comes up, but acting li…
  • @7Heroica7 Yes, the @ thing tags users (provided they're spelled correctly, a problem I often have with my username). Glad that this worked for you!
  • Great work @ruxter! Even though you list the light models in the title, you might consider adding links in the video description for those interested in buying them.
  • My guess is that the particle sim is looking at your layer pre-effects. Some tools do that. One way to fix this is to put your greenscreened layer at the bottom of the layer stack, add a grade layer just above it, and set the grade layer as the sour…
  • More info is needed about your media.  If you don't already have MediaInfo installed, get it now, then drop your clip into it.  Change to the Text report, then copy the report and paste it in here. What software are you using to capture your game f…
  • This may sound strange, but people edit without markers all the time. I use Reaper for all of my audio editing, and it's got markers, and I almost never use them. I'm sure that some aspects of editing may become slightly easier when/if markers are a…
  • "Do I have to wait until I'm absolutely 100% done with my project and *know* I don't want any more changes before I attempt to make anything into a comp?  That seems counterintuitive." Not necessarily. It's actually pretty smart.  Working in passes…
  • "now that I have Hitfilm all set up on my new computer, can I completely delete it from my other?" Yes. "any idea why this thing isn’t just starting right up nice and smooth?" To answer that, it would help to know the specs of both old and new ma…
  • Well, the whole anniversary-release thing clearly didn't happen as I thought it would.  Haven't made a lick of progress on the tutorial. Partly due to work, partly due to (oddly enough) lack of motivation. Things just aren't clicking right now.  Whe…
  •  @TheDigitalMedia "I just pulled the plug on Davinci Resolve Studio 15" Um...I think you mean "pulled the trigger," not "pulled the plug."  To "pull the plug" means to shut something off, implying that you're going to stop using it, which clearly …
  • Thanks for sharing!  However, I gotta say that calling it "License Free Music" feels a bit odd to me.  It's almost in the same vein as "This page left intentionally blank," if you get my drift.
  • @kremzeek Unfortunately there isn't a way to revert a composite shot back into anything else.  Other than what's in the undo queue, there's no sense of "history" kept in a comp.  If you make a comp from a sliced piece of video in the main Editor tim…
  • @Triem23 "I believe I'm the oldest." I don't know about that. I may have you beat there, but if not, I'm closer than you probably think.
  • @260szalssa If you have an export problem with one project that doesn't occur with others, the problem could be any number of things.  Is that project larger or more complex than the others?
  • On a different note, is there a particular reason you're not using the latest version of HitFilm Express (v 8)?
  • @readabook2017 One thing you didn't mention (and your screenshot doesn't clearly show) is where the bulge effect is applied. Is it applied in the composite shot, or directly in the Editor timeline? While I'm here, here are a truckload of other quest…
  • The free version can use Fade to Color without any issues. The image you shared isn't showing up. You'll need to host your image on an external server (your own or an image hosting site like imgur.com) before you can share it here. To reiterate wha…
  • @TopsStudios I don't like to do 1-10 rankings because those are so subjective.  If there are areas to improve, I prefer to talk about those in specific terms.  Do you have interesting visuals? I think so.  Could they be better? Perhaps, bu…
  • +1 to what @Triem23 said. Nice work overall! 
  • I remember seeing some of this a while back. You definitely have some solid skills, and an interesting visual style.  I look forward to seeing more!
