HitFilm 3 Pro is the latest iteration of the combination editing & effects software from England-based tech company FXHOME. Emerging in 2011, HitFilm has seen swift upgrades with each release and now appears in its newest incarnation as a solid competitor of other film editing giants such as Adobe’s Premier Pro and Apple’s Final Cut.
For the majority of filmmakers, a select few programs come to mind when thinking about video post-production. Final Cut Pro, Premier Pro, Avid Media Composer and Sony Vegas are among the editing giants, with programs such as Maya and After Effects filling the visual effects space. HitFilm 3 Pro is a slick all-in-one platform that brings together video editing, 3D compositing and visual effects tools and provides beginning-to-intermediate filmmakers all they need to produce a well-polished video.
HitFilm 3 Pro comes as an easy download through the HitFilm website. Installation is smooth and we had the program up and running in no time. Upon startup, users will be greeted with the home screen, which presents a range of different tutorials and help options, including links to videos, a user guide and the HitFilm forums. For anyone who is feeling trepidation going in, this wide selection of tutorials is sure to be appreciated. read more...
