Avene's Everyday thread
From today, May the 1st, 2015, I'm starting an everyday project. Inspired by a talk I saw that Beeple did, I figured I should really do that too. Basically, create something new everyday and post it online.
Now, since I've never used HitFilm as much as I should have in the past, I decided it would be best to dedicate everyday of at least this first month, to learning it. Here's my first video from today. I do all my own music too.
More details on my blog here too - http://avene.org/avene-bottle-beats-everyday-1/
I was really lazy with this one. Just a singe shot of a bottle with Atomic particles over the top, some sun flare, fake motion, and a masked our copy of the bottle that moves forward and back. No motion tracking or any of that fancy stuff.. which I still need to learn properly.
My biggest problem with HitFilm though is the lack of export options. Since I always render my videos to a master format from Sony Vegas, which is normally a Cineform avi file or sometimes MXF, the sole MP4 and Uncompressed AVI options in HitFilm are actually pretty useless to me. So I rendered out the footage as a .png sequence, which I later loaded into Vegas, and added a few extra edits to the music there. Although only used Hitfilm plugins including the motion trails plugins. I only have Vegas 12, so can't access HitFilm Pro from there.
So that's it.. Posting here as another way of keeping myself accountable to make sure I continue working on these projects everyday.
By the way, my wife is doing this too, so I'll try and get her to post her work here too.
