HitFilm Pro 4 Tutorial | Visual Effects and Editing

What is Hitfilm pro?
HitFilm 4 Pro gives users a viable and affordable alternative to the other editing and visual effects software on the market.
If I’m being honest, I’ve been on the lookout for an alternative to Premiere Pro for quite some time. Considering that my living isn’t made in post-production work, it doesn’t make a whole lot of sense for me to pay for the software on a month-by-month subscription basis (which I’ve been doing since Creative Cloud was announced several years ago). Though DaVinci Resolve is the clear favorite to take over, I’m also intrigued by HitFilm 4 Pro, a software that aims to be an all-in-one solution for editing, visual effects, and 3D compositing.

First up, here’s a quick overview of the HitFilm Pro workflow. This video is demonstrated in HitFilm 3 Pro, so some of the functionality might have changed slightly (for the better) with the release of version 4.

Here’s a more in-depth video that shows off the editing capabilities in HitFilm. Again, this comes from HitFilm 3, but as far as I can tell, the editing interface and functionality haven’t changed much.

And here’s an overview of some of the VFX and 3D compositing features that have been added in HitFilm 4 Pro:
