Why doesn't HitFilm update New shape data from mocha?
I was messing about with this old BMW advert, and once I'd got the first car coming in @10s, I decided to bring in the second for the wipe @15s and that's when I ran into problems trying to add the second layer, as well as tidy up the first one.
How do I get Hitfilm to realise I just made a change/improvement to the shape data, or added a new layer etc. after I exported the file from Mocha Hitfilm?
I've tried Right Click and reloading all the assets in Hitfilm and it makes no difference.
I've tried closing everything and just reopening the Hitfilm project file.
I've tried exiting Hitfilm, leaving mocha open, saving there again (in case Hitfilm was blocking the file in some way) then reopening Hitfilm and reloading the project. Still no change. Just the original shape data I first saved out.
I can import the composite file with the new shape data into a second composite and then cut'n'paste the layers back into the original composite, after deleting the originals, then delete the spare composite, but then I have to remake any changes to the layers again. I've also got duplicated assets that I don't need in the Media slot and trying to tidy them up inevitably deletes the wrong thing, as it's not clear what's what with all the duplicated names.
So, how do I get Hitfilm to simply 'refresh' the new mocha shape data form the file I exported?
Also, how best to open mocha Hitfilm to do this, as it can only be opened from within Hitfilm?
Currently, I do 'New solve with Mocha Hitfilm', but once there, I reload the most recent project file, which works, but seems clunky.
One last thing: even though I've deleted all but one composite, on Export, I'm presented with a list of all the ones I created and deleted, all with the same names.
