The most Ridiculous Road Trip Ever! Hey everyone, this video was meant to experiment with new techniques that I want to use in Finger Pistols for the horse chase scene with the train, I model a car to use for this experiment, the idea was to create a moving background to simulate that the car is moving, not only using Backdrops with the animation feature, I wanted to use moving objects with the Key frame feature to create a parallax effect, so far it seems to be a good idea but still needs to be improved a bit more, my girlfriend was in town and she seen what I was doing and wanted to take part in the cartoon, so I made a cartoon out of it and made it ridiculous!

We played as ourselves and I also played as the cop, the old lady, and the old man, oh and excuse my speech, I'm adjusting to my new dental work...Lol!

Second video, Minions styled characters.... A while back I tried to make a minion for a video I was going to make, but for some reason they just didn't look right with long legs,with many tries of different model peaces that I have made, I came up with a few that came real close to looking good, and the only ones that works for attachments for the characters, so since I never really used them and I seen this topic, I figured I would share them here, maybe someone can make them work for what they want to do.

Here's picture of the minions I have made.

Here's the link to the set

And here is the link to the model attachments

As you can see I made a body and a head as two different attachments,and I rounded the ends for better mesh collision that makes them look better attached to each other, I also made a opening for the mouth and I added black to the inside of the goggles so it will better blend with the eyes, I tested them with all of the actions and they work really well with most of them, but there are some that don't work well with them, so you would have to play around with the actions to see which one work, anyways Hope this helps, and I'm sorry that I never realized anyone really needed them.

Did you have to upgrade your power supply to drive the graphics card?

help - biting off more than computer can chew.. I had the same problem with the Saloon scene in Finger Pistols, but that was before I upgraded my computer, so what I did was I made a copy of the Saloon scene set, in the copy set I kept all of the cameras and characters in the same positions but I deleted half of the characters, I then went and changed the textures to most of the set to green, and I made the render of the shoot, then I went back to the Original set and kept all of the cameras and characters in the same positions and deleted the other half of the characters and I didn't change the textures to the set, and I made the render to that shoot, when I did it this way it made everything much faster and easy to work with, Ok now the next thing that I did was I went into hitFilm and imported both clips to the scene original and copy with the green textures, now I dragged the original clip to the timeline and made it composite shot, now in the composite shot tab I dragged the copy clip with the green texture into it's timeline but i placed it over the the original clip making it the only scene visible, in the effects tab I dragged the green screen effect to the copied clip and now I have both scene as one scene again, its a lot work yea but it did the job for me, but now my computer is faster and stronger and i no longer do it this way, well maybe when I do special effects, this method could be useful to some people.

20 Second Film Competition (Summer theme) I usually go camping on our independence day,
So here's my entry

It's true I tried to cook a corn over
The campfire but burned,so instead I turned
It into popcorn!

Excuse the typing, I'm on my phone.

Speed Boat Tease Thanks for the kind words patt, I'm taking breaks from Finger Pistols to throw in some short videos so no one will forget,I made this video when for some strange reason I was thinking what it would be like to be stranded on a desert Island, told my brother about it and he laugh, he said you go get stranded on one, and he'll wait about 15 years and he would drive up in a boat and tease by telling random things that I would miss and then drive off....Lol, he inspired me so I made this, He's also helping with funny idea for finger pistols, told him I'm still waiting on voice actors and a few other thing.

Speed Boat Tease Here's a little video about a castaway that's been stranded on a Desert Island for 15 years, and now It's volcano is about to explode, to make things more frustrating a speed boat drive keeps coming by teasing him when all he want's is to rescued before the Island is destroyed.

after the recent Make Me Laugh competition, Ziggy said:
I take it the splattered blood at 1:44 is HitFilm? Very cool!

Yup - anything really cool looking is HF

at this point I want to ask what specific features/details in your video were done in hitfilm ?

In my video:
  • song lyrics were added as composite shots (which gave me great flexibility to drag and position them wherever I wanted)
  • closing credits made with a built-in template for scrolling credits
  • the final "as this memory fades" scene in which a background layer fades out... was powered by HITFILM
although I could have done the same things with my previous editing software, HF made it easy.

I use Hitfilm 2 Ultimate for the effects you seen in my Star wars Spoofs!
