Hello,
sorry for my bad English.
I have been using Hitfilm Express for a short time and it offers great possibilities.
I would like to create this effect (see link)

If someone could help me choose the light flares, the settings would be great!
thank you in advance

    OK, the standard Wonder Woman shot would have a locked camera on a tripod. Linda Carter would spin, they'd stop the camera, she'd change, then they'd start the camera and she'd spin some more.

    If you're replicating this, then I'll assume you put your camera on a tripod and you have two shots of your actor spinning in two costumes.

    • Line up the two shots in a Composite Shot.
    • Add a Grade Layer over the top.
    • Move the playhead to the frame you want the light effect to begin.
    • Add the Light Flare effect to the Grade Layer.
    • Move the Light Flare effect to cover your actor. I suppose at this point you'll scroll through the Flare Type dropdown to see which one looks best to you.
    • Activate keyframing for the Scale of the flare.
    • Turn Scale down to 0.
    • Move to the frame where you want the flare to be it's biggest.
    • Turn Scale up until it's big enough.
    • Move to the frame where you want the flare to start fading. Add a Scale Keyfraem.
    • Move to the frame where you want the flare gone and set Scale to 0.
    • Look for the Light Flare's Color properties if you want the flare to be a different color. Color can also be keyframed if you want the flare to move from blur to red.

    Fair enough. If you create a thread another time and decide you want to move it to another subforum tag me with an "@" in front of the name @Triem23

    Or you can tag Stargazer54 (other mod) or even Staff (TheBenNorris) and we'll move the thread to a different subforum. I actually moved your merged threads to the "Hitfilm Techniques" subforum. Is that where you want it, or would you prefer "Filmmaking?" ?

    ?

    You might want to watch this. It goes over most of the controls in the flare. It will help you tune the look to get what you want.
