help with simple shots
Hi, I'm new into Hitfilm and editing videos. I'm struggling with getting some effects that I want in my videos. I feel like it's very simple stuff, I just don't know how to do it, so I came here hopping to get some help. All the videos will be about cooking.
The first shot, karate-chop, is me chopping an onion in half with my hand, the problem is how do I do the effect of the onion being chopped into two halfs in a flawless way.
The second shot is peeling an onion, which is in the file peeling. The question is how can I have the onion in one shot, pass the hand over and then have a peeled onion appear where the other one stood.
The last part of the shot is cutting the peeled onion. I would like to just touch it with the knife and then all the slices would be cut and slide like in a domino effect.
I would really appreciate some advise because I don't know how to approach this in a way to make the cuts seamless.
Thanks in advance for any help!
