Get the update What is HitFilm? Free trial

What better way to kick off the new year than with a big HitFilm 4 Pro free update? There are a lot of fixes in this one, so we recommend updating as soon as you can.

The biggest change is to the Quad Warp effect, which now has built-in motion blur, high quality anti-aliasing and more precise animation. If you’ve been using the Quad Warp in conjunction with HitFilm or mocha tracking for your corner pin shots you’ll find an immediate and dramatic increase in quality.

Quad Warp and Vignette have also been tweaked to default their settings to the host layer’s resolution. This means that Quad Warp won’t immediately distort the layer when applied, and vignette will apply automatically around the outskirts of your layer. It’s a small tweak but makes for a big usability boost.

There’s a ton of other tweaks as well, so check out the full changelog at the bottom of this blog post.

Meanwhile, over on YouTube…

Update #2 isn’t the only thing we’ve been working on. While the devs were busy getting that ready, I’ve been working on the new YouTube show with Kirstie and Josh. If you’ve missed the show so far, check out some of the videos scattered around this blog post.

Unless you’ve been being slowly digesting in the pit of Carkoon for the last thousand years (our condolences), you’ll have noticed that Star Wars: The Force Awakens hit cinemas last month. Join in the discussion and give your verdict over on the forum.

To celebrate, we released a Special Edition of HitFilm 3 Express and put out a series of new sci-fi tutorials. Although the Special Edition was limited to December, you can still get HitFilm 3 Express and check out all the tutorial content over here.

To prove we’re not entirely obsessed with Star Wars (until December rolls around again) we’ve also been pumping out a new series of videos focused on more general filmmaking techniques. There’s a new episode every Tuesday, so let us know what you’d like to see in the show and don’t forget to subscribe to the HitFilm channel!
