@GrayMotion Cool! Thanks for the comet info. Way.... back in the day I was really into amateur astronomy. Hope this apparition puts on a nice show.
Atlas comet.....This really looks to be a huge event in the sky. I saw Haleys is 97 which was awesome itself...but this thing is really really big and bright bright green. Right now the gas around the comet is almost a turquoise green and around 1/2 the size of our Sun.It is almost visible to the naked eye and getting bigger by the day. Keep a look out between the Big Dipper and Venus. Should be extremely easy to photograph or video without a telescope. Warming up my p900 and "hoping" my star tracker mount shows so I can get long exposure with my DSLR. https://earthsky.org/space/how-to-see-bright-comet-c-2019-y4-atlas
@GrayMotion I'm almost certain that Halley's came through in 1986 on it's 76 years cycle. The Hale -Bopp came through in 1997 You know I saw thatAtlas was going to be May before it was really visible so I haven't even gone out to look. I'll have to do that tonight.
@GrayMotion I clicked on the link you provided and scrolled down to the video some guy shot in his backyard.
Holy crap! How in the world did he track that thing?? Regular clock drive on a telescope would keep the same star field in view but it looks like he was able make small adjustment to keep the comet centered. Would like to know what kind of rig he was using.
It is always good to be reminded of "your own" ultimate excpectations...and some real good workflows and (wishfully/hoping built with Hitfilm and E3D in mind~dream) mouth watering stuff at 43:50
Ok I am not going to lie I watched that THX about 5 times My brain and eyes and ears feel much better now. And yes Kramer is on another level. Awesome stuff there.
Greg, how about we just beg @JoshDaviesCEO to make Nebula3D the next Hitfilm-compatible AE plug-in? @JavertValbarr might drool, too? ;-)
@GrayMotion To rip off George Takei's catchphrase, Oh my! I want that plug in. I spun my wheels for so long trying to make an erstaz sandstorm and that looks lifelike. + 1 million to @Triem23 idea to beg Josh.
I'm revisiting some of the techniques I learnt 3-4 years ago? concerning engine plumes and heat displacement. Since that time I am in need of a refresher course on the technique..got some jet plume distortion in the pipeline.
So oh great ones of the forum. A few years back Simon Jones did a tutorial on jet plumes under a flying saucer. For the life of me I cannot find the video. Could someone throw a rock at me and point me to the classic instructional please.Thank you kindly.EDIT: Ah.. he.double.toothpicks! Paint me "dense"...6 years ago! My bad forum. Particle displacement for jet engines.
@GrayMotion That one tutorial likes to hide from me all the time. I always have trouble locating it
Instead of a support category I pose this here:
I'm getting a new 27" iMac (last of the Mohicans). Although I use more than Hitfilm I still want the best out of Hitfilm that I can muster.
Question: Will a Radeon Pro 5700 XT preform decent with Hitfilm Pro? (might be a silly question)
Yeah, it should. The Radeon Pro 5700XT is a solid card. It's roughly equivalent to the Nvidia 2060. I just got a new machine with a 2060 and it's been nice to work with 4k video that actually plays in real time.

@GrayMotion I'm not even a gamer player but that does look quite interesting. I thought it was a WWII thing until Jigsaw popped up and got my attention 😂I think the last game I played might have been Abe's OddWorld way back at the turn of the millennium.
God! I'm running a GTX 970 on mine and crying. :) I'm looking at buying a new rig in a few months and looking at a RTX 3070 or 3080.
@EvilDaystar I was waiting for and saving for the Nvidia 3xxx series to build a desktop. Then my laptop and my wife's laptop both kind died, so... the laptop with the 2060 was always intended as a "cheap" stopgap before doing the desktop. At least it happened during back to school sales, and I got a great power-price ration. Normally I never look at Nvidia xx60's. It's 80's or bust. But the 2060 is a lot faster/smoother than the 980m.
As promised I told you I'd show you were to get all the Mixamo animations. The link is 4 years old but still working
@spydurhank A heads up - Auto Rig Pro does work with Filmer. If you re-call I showed you a rigged character that came out of Character Creator a few weeks ago
Awesome, just watched the demo in your link... Como se dice.., whoa dude. That addon is pretty damned slick. Thanks for the link. :)
@GrayMotion OMG that AutoRigging plug-in looks outrageously awesome. It looks Tooo easy.
@GrayMotion well... That's useful!
Obviously Auto Rig Pro is not Hitfilm related but I thought it was pretty darn cool and as @Stargazer54 said- "Tooo easy". The cool thing is it's just not for human anatomy. You can rig almost anything!
I have something in the works to show my appreciation to a few very very good "friends" here on the forums so stay tuned for that but to go a bit beyond I also have been informed of a few free animations from ActorCore:
Also there is an Auto Set for Unreal and Unity as well as an Auto Rig Pro preset for mapping animation to those software(s)
I am out of my wheel house here (Mike and others already know this stuff) but for those who don't (like me):
I've been studying how to create smooth transitions between Mocap's. Not perfect by no means but working on it. Forgive me 😏
@GrayMotion Looks great to me. I see no glitches between motions at all! Looks like a dancer!
Heheh...thanks gents! It's not Franks Iron Man and I need much more practice but it's fun . I'm loving the texture clarity and the cloth and hair physics 👍
@GrayMotion I was so impressed with the landscape part I downloaded the model and it looks great in HItfilm preview but how did you get the wind motion? I looked at Behaviors which I have yet to play with but didn't see anything like wind jump out at me. I did get a nice camera push in at Ant-Man level though...😃
@tddavis Dust particles sim does give the illusion of wind doesn't it? I got lucky - took me about 45 minutes of fooling with the camera move. The end result was an illusion
@GrayMotion Holy crap! That's pretty awesome. The only thing that gives it away as "animation" is her facial expression remains the same. If you can lick that you could certainly fool the casual observer that was a real woman dancing. Absolutely amazing. I can't even get over how available the tools are now to simulate human characters. Back in the day that was the Holy Grail - now it is almost plug and play.
