Me too RJ, I brew my own beer and distill spirits (making a really fine bourbon these days) and have just started wine making. My peach wine is a peach, as  we wine makers say, very drinkable, with a hint of peach. Can't remember tho last time I was drunk,  not because I was drunk, just too long ago

I'm an avid homebrewer with a few beers on tap at all times.  Having said that, I hate even feeling tipsy let alone drunk.  So I'm like Whitestrat in that I may have 1 or 2 over the course of an evening but that's it.

Never been much of a drinker. I don't abstain, but 1 or 2 drinks, over a couple of hours, is more than enough for me....
You might be right, neil....  :P

Alcohol is so very "college" for me.  I drank a lot of it back in college.  Didn't drink any in HS. After graduate school, it became sort of ho-hum.  Now, occasionally I'll have a beer at a restaurant with dinner. I don't even keep them at the house.  Now, Diet Coke on the other hand...

Used to drink soda (pop) a long time back, but got so I didn't care for anything carbonated.  I do miss a good Root Beer once in a while - with ice cream...

Yeah, but I gave up alcohol back in the early '70's.  Been coffee ever since.  4-5 cups an hour when I'm home, 2-3 an hour when I'm out working.  Every place I work knows they get a better deal if they keep coffee handy...

« on: September 27, 2017, 04:29:29 PM »
Just came across this the other day.  Anyone ever used this?  Have any tips?

https://hitfilm.com/

They have a free express edition.  I've been wanting to make better edited music videos for awhile, so I'll be sure to follow up if I have any successful.

I have the Pro version of Hitfilm, RK.  I actually have over a dozen video editors that I use and keep updated, but Hitfilm Pro is the strongest by far.  I've been using it since before it was called HitFilm (can't remember the old name right now, too many years ago).

The Express version is supposed to be pretty good, but I've never used that one.  From what I've seen, it should do most anything you'll need or want.  Might be a steep learning curve if you've never done any higher end video editing, but you shouldn't have any trouble.  And tons of tutorials out there for Hitfilm.

Looking forward to seeing what you do with it...

I think the tutorials available is main thing that caught my eye.

I want to start making animated lyric videos, like these



apparently it is usually done with adobe products from what I understand.

Also, though I doubt I'll ever have enough time to ever get good with it, I would like to bring some of my imaginative 7 year old daughter's stories to life. Might be something fun to learn together.

I have all of Adobe's editors, too, and they're good, but Hitfilm (Pro) is even better.

You'll get good with it, because once you start playing with it and figuring out how to do the various effects, you won't be able to stop looking for more fun things to do with it.  And every tutorial will entice you to try all those things.

Too bad more people here aren't into video editing, in addition to the ODC we could have a semi-annual video challenge.  That would be very cool...  (-!)

snare on 2 and 4.  the rest is just filler.

unless it's something silly, like prog, then you can do whatever you want. :)

If I start utilizing express regularly and liking it, I'll probably eventually want to buy pro.  That's how Reaper was for me... though I'm pretty sure I still don't use 90% of the features.

Just this, and get my full midi orchestra template setup in Reaper again, and build those last two guitars, and on and on...

Very possible, RK, but I'm pretty sure Express will keep you busy for a while, playing with all the cool stuff and working through all the tutorials.  I expect to see a slick video coming out soon...
