HitFilm Pro review
A VIDEO EDITOR WITH POWERFUL COMPOSITING TOOLS ON A BUDGET. US$299 | FXHOME.COM/HITFILM-PRO
FXhome’s HitFilm Pro is one of many video editing apps for Mac or PC fighting for your attention, but this unique software manages to offer an unbeatable effect library for the price.
HitFilm Pro is an advanced video editing tool and compositor, which means you can cut a movie and apply effects to it (like colour correction or green screen), all within the same software package.
The workspace on display is versatile enough so you can easily change the layout to suit your needs, adding, removing or reordering panels as you see fit.
When it comes to editing it’s easy to import your media, preview it, set in and out points, and insert clips into your project. Where HitFilm Pro truly shines however, is in the visual special effects department. This is this app’s biggest selling point, as it offers hundreds of effects and presets. It’s nice to see a developer sticking to the traditional approach in developing a tool that you can actually purchase outright, with included free updates for a year.
