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.
