HitFilm Pro review
Seamlessly combining a huge array of features providing amateurs and professionals everything they need to see a project through to the end. Combined timelines: Switch from one tab to the next like you would on a browser depending on your needs. Edit in one, composite in the other and jump back to the editor without any need to load another piece of software. Personalizable workstation: Your personal interface can then be saved as your default layout.
Color coding: Give your creative process a bit of order. Personalized playback: You can customise your playback quality and paused quality. Not only can you playback at a different quality, you can now control that quality from the menu in the viewer.
This allows you to make faster, snappier edits. Enhanced performance: Threaded-rendering allows the interface and video to work independently allowing for a smooth and lightning-fast workflow. Mask editing and rendering: Masking is used to manually create a matte. A matte determines which parts of a layer are visible.
Practically, this means that masks are used to cut holes in your layers. Export Queue: If you close down the software, the export will automatically resume when you load it back up. Export presets: Export presets let you configure your export settings for high quality or high compression.
Just drag and drop your selected presets, make it the default and move on to the next task. Professional formats: Work with all footage, from your vertical smartphone shots to high-end professional camera documentaries, HitFilm can handle it. Intelligent search: Coming from another software system? Layer and track locking: Easily lock layers and tracks to protect their contents and prevent them from being changed after completing your work. When a layer or track is locked, a lock icon will appear on the layer.
Video editing HitFilm Pro provides a range of powerful non-linear editing tools ensuring you have the right tools for the job. Animation tools: A large number of advanced animation tools are now available within both editor timelines. This huge update allows you to create and edit audio and video transitions without the need to create composite shots. Composite shot enhancements: There is a vast number of animation tools, more than ever before, at your disposal in composite shots. For example, you can now animate two shots at once by using the control panel graph and the timeline graph.
Audio Hard Limiter: Professional audio editing functionality allows you to normalise your audio without any need for external software. Make all the adjustments you need inside HitFilm to create a pitch perfect performance. Unlimited tracks: HitFilm allows you to add unlimited video and audio tracks to your timeline. Multiple streams: HitFilm allows you to import multiple streams of audio, giving you full flexibility over your workflow.
Picture in Picture: Picture in Picture or PiP is a highly common video style in online content. HitFilm now provides a quick solution for this with the Picture in Picture effect, allowing you to position one clip inside another with different scales and position relative to the layer. Adaptive Trimmer: You now have the power to re-trim your clips after adding them to the timeline.
Double-clicking a clip sends it to the trimmer panel, ready for you to make the adjustments you need. Once the necessary changes have been made the clip on the timeline will be automatically updated. Behavior Effects have now been added with a whole array of possibilities. Creating animated timepieces or orbiting planets has never been so simple. This is just the start of the capabilities of the new Behavior Effects.
Vertical video: Compositing and layering: Add new dimensions to your filmmaking by bringing together 3D layers, models and particle simulations in the same space.
Create stunning user interfaces by layering 2D graphics directly inside a 3D model. Take an ordinary 2D photo and convert it to a projected, photoreal 3D scene complete with camera movement.
HitFilm now offers the ability to copy a group of attributes from one clip and apply them directly to another, or your whole project. Forgot to grade your first 10 clips? Now you can grade one and easily apply the same grade to the rest. Audio mixer: The audio mixer allows you to fine-tune your sound for professional quality output.
Easily modify, balance and mix tracks — or get precise control over individual elements with mute and solo features. You can even build your own transition type within a composite shot or the editor timeline. Dedicated trimmer: An emitter is where all particle effects begin, specifying where the particles appear and affecting their initial trajectory. Particle systems: An emitter can contain multiple particle systems. A particle system is the visible part of the particle effect.
The properties of a particle system will determine the visual appearance and behaviour of each individual particle at its birth. Once a particle is born, its behaviour can be affected by multiple external factors such as deflectors and forces.
Mobile emitters: Emitters can also contain mobile emitters. These are special types of emitter that are spawned in the same way as particle systems, but which can then go on to spawn their own particle systems.
If you want your particles to interact in more interesting ways, deflectors and forces are what you need. Deflectors are collision areas for particles and can be shapes generated inside the particle simulator or other layers on your timeline. This is a great way to simulate particles colliding with real world objects in your live action footage. Particle shapes: Create awe-inspiring particle clouds based on 2D shapes or 3D geometry, then warp them into organic forms with extensive fractal distortion.
You can even mix in an audio clip to automate the animation. Want to get more creative with your particle design? Simply import your own 3D models as particles to create everything from a fleet of warships to a swarm of locusts. Post processing: Take computer-generated particle systems to the next level by adding 2D effects and filters.
You can add heat distortions to big explosions or mists over a foggy mountain to give your special effects scenes a more organic look. Text and titling: HitFilm Pro comes with professional text and titling options. Add 3D geometry effects such as extrude, bevel and rotate to your text to create the look you want. The geometry supports lights, shadows and environments maps. Not only can you copy and paste without issue but you can now type directly into the textbox.
The latest build gives you the power to export titles, have instanced titles on the editor meaning you can edit them in the editor without going into the comp. Fire and lightning: Procedurally generated fire and lightning with accurate behavior and appearance can be further enhanced with heat distortion and post-processed lighting effects.
Muzzle flashes: Unlike pre-rendered stock, these can be rotated in full 3D to work from any angle. Repair your footage: Remove unwanted digital grain from your videos, fix jello-vision caused by rolling shutter cameras, stabilize jittery handheld shots and remove distortion from fisheye lenses.
