Downloaded a bit of video editing software called “HitFilm4” tonight and had a bit of a play around with it.
I want to get good and decent at editing and messing about with videos and being able to add crazy special effects to it too. Its something I’ve always fancied mastering but just never had the time to do it…but I need to make the time to learn.
Started things off with adding an Iron-Man style Heads Up Display to a video which tracks and follows my head around properly.
I played with layers and adding overlays. I tracked my eyebrow and the movements it made and tied all the displays into it, which were swivelled on an axis around a point. I created a 3D image from a 2D one, giving depth to my head so it knew how things could swivel around my face with the movements.

…now just to figure out how those kinds of life-skills can be put into practice…
