My Actor came up with that line "Cookie loving Stormtrooper" Glad you liked it!
So I did use Element 3D for the corridor shots and all the 3d models, including all space, first time, and it was fun!
I am glad I didn't forget to add the sparks because it added a nice touch like you said
full version to come hopefully by the end of the week or sooner!
@HIS_Films Great job! Has anyone else noticed the resemblance of your lead actor to current photos of Jake Lloyd who played kid Darth Vader in Phantom Menace, or is it just my old man eyes?
Hey tddavis Glad you liked it! Now that you mention it, he kind of does
I liked your entry by the way for the contest, the reflections on the space craft were nice!
@HIS_Films Thanks, but it was weak at best, and like I told GrayMotion those reflections were stumbled upon by accident.
You know now that I've thought about that phrase "cookie-loving Stormtrooper" I can't help but picture my 345 lbs stuffed into white plastic armor with the black undergarment sticking out between the plates all over! Maybe even a pot-bellied stomach plate for more room. Or a blue furry wookie-like muppet that likes to munch on cookies in the armor.
Lol that would be funny!
Random question how do I tag someone? Like you did to me "@HIS_Films" it is probably so simple, I just do not know how to do this
@HIS_Films Exactly like you tagged yourself. Type the @ sign in front of someone's user handle and when it posts it will turn blue and into a link to their user page info plus the automated system will put a red box at the bottom (Over Profile if I'm not mistaken) when they log in next. It puts a red box over Inbox when they get a Private Message. I had to ask when I first started using the forum, too.
Wait! I did not know I did that oops sorry thanks
@HIS_Films Hey, no apology necessary. It would only affect you but I imagine the system doesn't send notifications from a user to themselves anyway. I just meant as an example of how it's done. And you've got it now.
@Hudson982 Glad you liked the clips running a little behind on the full version for sure to come out next week some time
Well here is the full version of Yoda's Missing cookies! I know there are a couple of mistakes, like in the first space shot the misty cloud stuff was not tracked well the rendering was really slow there, a lot of info Enjoy!
Nice! Dark Lord Oreo! hahahaha!
("...and, of course, Jar-Jar Binks," just said so dismissively...)
Nice to see and expanded and final version.
Only notes are the edit at 1:40 isn't working, (but you probably don't have a different angle or take) and remember that a second copy of a greenscreen video with a VERY rough matte can be used to fix keying issues. There are a few holes in Darth Oreo that can be quickly patched with a super fast roto.
But I do enjoy this short even more in the expanded version.
Thanks Triem! Glad you liked it more!
Thanks for the tips I was not thinking, when I shot those two shots, that they were like at the same angle, I need to think next time
I never thought of that, by doubling up the greenscreen footage than doing a rough mask under, that is smart, that is going to help a lot! We can just say that Darth Oreo hase some kind of special sith powers, or something were you can see through him...sometimes
Late to the party. I think the expanded version is definitely fun, but I've got a few quibbles:
@jsbarrett Hey, glad you liked it
Thanks, your comment has been helpful
So I attempted my First Vlog and here it is! Please give tips, the music at the end got a little loud, so that is my fault, but I am not saying anything important at that point
If you did want to vote, just check in the description on youtube, thanks
do not no why the thumbnail is not showing?
Don't worry about that---that's an occasional glitch in the wonderful forum software. ;-)
Nice! Both the music and sound effects were too loud, so it was tough to follow at times, but not bad for a first effort.
@Triem23 Ok, no problem thanks
@jsbarrett Glad you liked it! Sorry about the audio I struggle
@His_Films try using ShotCut. It's got an audio Normalise function. I found it's also better than Handbrake at exporting clips that play nicely in Hitfilm. Handbrake keeps on turning CFR footage into VFR for me, but Shotcut doesn't. Load, Export, done.Tutorials are slim, and pretty awful, but watch them all and you'll get a sense of what it can do and you can just use it as a "fixer upper" program before you start working in Hitfilm.
@Palacono Thanks I will watch it and check it out thanks for the help, i need it
Here is my First entry for Production crate's monthly contest!
Theme: Edit this Footage! So they give you footage of a recording of themselves and you have to edit it, and that is what we did!
Brilliant. And as usual, the music and FX: stellar! My only note would be: The first hand hitting the keyboard replaced by a finger pressing a mouse, which then allow you to have a hand hitting the keyboard delete button (closeup of the word delete as it is pressed) rather than the quite subtle mouse click.
@Palacono Great! Glad you liked it! Thanks
You make a great point! That would make a whole lot of sense to switch those movements, oh well, I will keep that in mind
Very clever, and great production quality! Aside from what @Palacono said, two things jumped out to me as CBBs (Could Be Better):
@jsbarrett Hey! Thanks for the tips! They are helpful Glad you liked it! I will keep in mind what you said Another to come out later today.
Looks good, would of been nice to have seen the source footage after to compare all that lovely work you did.
oh and I came to this thread thinking you had DELETED something, and wondered what. The subject tag in the header caught my interest.
