Hi. I was wondering if anybody knew a good way to create a beleivablenightcrawler teleport effect in hit film 3 express.
This video could help. Most of the effects can be applied in Hitfilm
There's this VideoCopilot tutorial that has a lot of good ideas.
The key here is the Polar Warp effect. Make a wobbly horizontal thing, use polar warp to bend it. It's doable in Express, but getting the proper depth is going to require several layers.
I've started this in HF3PRO... years and years of tweaking and still can't take the similar effect. I did this tutorial also in AE... 25 minutes going with the tutorial. Another few mins for tweaking and I'm ready to go... I think HF needs more better tutorials in advanced VFX. The tutorials we see are for beginners and for the price of HF4 I will go with the Adobe products.
I did a tutorial on teleportation and a shockwave for HF, maybe it will be of any use for you.
