All you ever wanted to know about HFX
Hollywood FX Tutorials
I created these pages to encourage you to try out and explore the various functions of the Pinnacle software, Hollywood FX V5.x/V6.x (also known under the acronym HFX or Easy FX Editor). HFX is much more powerful than it appears, it is useful not only to create spectacular 2D and 3D video transitions, but also for other effects such as: multi-screen (several movies simultaneously on the screen), creating a blur on the head of a moving character, to mask a portion of the video, modify a portion of the video without loss of resolution, morphing of video, modification of parameters with time, etc...
These pages should enable you to better comprehend the software, in order for you to accomplish multiple effects in your own movies. The only limitation with the software will be your own creativity.
The information below should be read, preferably, in the order presented. Even though the first four lessons may seem difficult, they are an essential base for you to build upon in order to grow your knowledge of HFX.
To continue with these lessons, it is assumed that you have a good working knowledge of Studio.
I cannot be held responsible for any errors that may occur while following these instructions. Please, always backup your computer before any modification. Regulary save your work. And now, enjoy the HFX tutorials.
