Axel's hitfilm 3 tunnel particle texture source


I know I am missing something!

In Dr Who tunnel there is a folder symbol in the particle emitters appearance section with a bunch of png's listed as the textures... Can't seem to achieve that with either built- in or use layer.

What am I missing Axel!?

    That tripped me up, too. 

    Answer: that is a Hitfilm 1 tutorial. In Hitfilm 2, 3 and 4, 2D Particle Textures have a different system outlined in this Axel Tutorial. 

    It's more complex to set up than a simple folder browser, but ends up being a lot more flexible and powerful. Using video clips as textures opens up things like mass cloning or really fantastic smoke/dust.

     Hi Triem23,

    Thanks for your reply. Now I see that it has been changed to a far more powerful system Yay Hitfilm

    Sometime hard to identify which version things apply to...

    Well. Things change, but if Simon and Axel redid their old tutorials for Hitfilm 4, there'd be no NEW tutorials! 

    My first ever post on this forum was that exact question about texture folders, and @MichaelJames was the one who set me straight.
