Star Trek Test Shot
My name is Otis Frampton. I'm a comic book writer/artist and animator. I'm also one of the two artists on the YouTube Series "How It Should Have Ended."

I just discovered HitFilm on Saturday after looking around for an alternative to After Effects. Great app and even greater community. Glad to have found it all!
I'm thinking of using HitFilm for an animated short I'm working on and also for some live action short films in the coming year that will be VFX heavy, so I've been giving the app a test drive over the last few days. This morning I started playing around with effects and decided to see if I could create a cool looking Star Trek shot with the Enterprise encountering a vortex in space.
Check it out!
I created the shot in HitFilm using two still images I found on the web (the space background and the Enterprise) and the built-in effects for the vortex.
I exported that and brought it into Final Cut Pro X for some color correction, an added camera shake and the letterbox. I probably could have done all of that in HitFilm or downloaded Ignite, but I'm very familar with Final Cut for post-work, so I decided to save time and do it that way.
I'm really loving this program. Even more than After Effects, which isn't very intuitive and can be overwhelming.
Can't wait to create and show more!
