3D models in true 3D space
Don’t have the budget for a real helicopter? Or a spaceship? HitFilm Pro gives you the tools you need to import, animate and composite a 3D model realistically into your 2D or 3D scene. With physically-based rendering, powerful texturing features (including using layers and composites as textures) and the option to reflect surroundings and cast shadows, it only takes a few adjustments to blend the object into your scene.
HitFilm Pro’s unified 3D space feature allows you to create layers and models that interact in the same space.
Lens Flares & Lighting Effects
Channel your inner J. J. Abrams with HitFilm’s powerful Lens Flare engine. HitFilm automatically identifies the bright spots in your scene for perfect placement. Craft the perfect flare with full control over artifacts like imperfect lens flaring from specular highlights, camera dirt, and anamorphic streaks.
Add some spark with HitFilm’s lightning generator. Perfect for creating Harry Potter-style wand effects, exploding star systems or throwing electric bolts with customizable branches, color and motion.
The particle effects technology in our VFX software is world-leading. Get your images or 3D models to morph into point grids that respond to animation or sound. Use Atomic Particles to design Tron-style holographic visuals, fractal distortions, dramatic dissolves or animations synced to your favorite track.
Auto Video Stabilizer
Say goodbye to unwanted camera shake – smooth out handheld footage in your edits with the click of a button using HitFilm Pro’s Auto Stabilizer effect. Professional-looking footage on an indie budget? No sweat.
World’s best Chroma Key
We don’t say that lightly. We’ve created leading Chroma Key technology to give you full control over edge detail, color correction, and spill suppression all within your VFX software.
Create any environment you want. Effortlessly extract your actors and objects with no lingering green edges. Our Matte Cleaner effect puts the finishing touches on your composite through smoothing, feathering and choking the edge of the key.
Neon Path Effect
A fully flexible tool. Add Neon Path to text and shape layers for creative text effects and neon signs that interact with their surroundings. Even use it to create irregular edges and Flicker for sizzling light-swords and laser beams.
Industry-leading Particle Effects
Who needs special effects when you can create your own physics? Create particle systems and control their emitters, behaviors, deflectors, and forces for realistic effects like sparks, glitter, dust or swarming objects. Add particle effects to real-life scenes and mix them seamlessly with the surroundings using physics-driven particle simulation.
Push realism aside for pure cool factor with grid patterns and fractally-warped, audio-influenced 3D forms. Create anything you choose.
Perfect for any action scene, our dedicated 3D muzzle flash engine incorporates a massive library of customizable effects. Drag and drop realistic, infinitely variable muzzle flashes onto any weapon in your prop collection from any angle, and at any size.
Our visual distortion effects come in four flavors: Heat, Energy, Smoke & Fluid Distortion. Create jet exhausts, burning fires and hot proton beams, or use fluid caustics to replicate the motion of rippling water.
What do you get when you want to make Layer 1 move at a multiplier of Layer 2? A mess, unless you’re using our intuitive Behavior effects. From orbiting planets to animated timepieces, this tool is perfect for seamless rotation.
Bring static characters to life with our powerful Puppet Tool. The easy-to-use pin and mesh function makes it easy to create natural motion in still images, text or graphics. Easy, fast, fluid animation— no strings attached.
Bring your scenes to life by having characters dodge bullets with motion blur, or bend time with echoes, visual motion trails and temporal displacement effects. Speed up, slow down or reverse the action with a click.

We give you captions, lower thirds, text crawls, outlines, font manipulations and so much more – all within your video editing software. No add-ons needed. Better yet, with every new update, they’re being improved.
Make fully 3D titles and text
HitFilm Pro is the only video editing software in the industry to also offer true 3D space in which to create professional motion graphics. Make 3D titles and text effects from 2D text, and add 3D geometry like extrude, bevel and rotate for more dynamic designs.

Give your title a bit of texture with our Surfaced Studio effect – generate animated textures with smooth, rough or metallic surfaces on any text (or layers) for a reactive, cinematic object.
Make your title follow a character out of shot. Bounce it into the frame. Wipeout Scott Pilgrim-style. With advanced 2D motion tracking within HitFilm, you’ve got endless possibilities for exciting text animation.
