My first computer was a VIC-20. I used a Commodore PET at school. I then went through the C-64, and several Amigas before finally switching over to the PC. Here's the part that really dates me... I was born the year Star Trek, the original series, premiered.
It's interesting to think how things have changed. At the slight risk of you all thinking I'm some kind of ancient being, when I was 12 things were very different: no YouTube, no world wide web, certainly no mainstreaming of the internet, no HD resolutions at all outside of expensive film, no AVCHD or HDV or miniDV, no DSLRs, no hi8. I think I may have had a terrible 8mm tape camcorder back then, except there was no way to edit without access to the more expensive VHS VCR rigs, and even then they were inaccurate and horrendously linear in their workflow. Terminator 2 had just come out, Jurassic Park didn't yet exist, and Star Wars was still cool.In terms of indie filmmaking, I definitely prefer now.
I dont remember the commodore pet...??
If I recall, TimmyD was either 9 or 10 when he was poking around FXhome in the beginning. Definitely has 12 beat. I was 12 when I started out under a different account name, bought when I was 14, and am going on to 23 now.So yeah, plenty of people have you beat in plenty of different ways, champ.
So my point is that I was looking at hitfilm the same age as TimmyD so HA
HitFilm's only been out for 1 year, so you can't have waited quite that long. Always good to see people going the legit route rather than the pirated route, though. It's appreciated.
Is anybody else impressed at how good Simon is at replying to ridiculous comments and still sounding nice and intelligent.
IP.P.S You said you found it whilst you were 9 and then bought it two years later when you were 12. In case you haven't realized, 9+2=11 NOT 12. SHEESH.
