We’re not kidding when we say that this is the biggest upgrade to HitFilm we have ever released. And if that wasn’t enough of a challenge for our team, we’ve topped it off with a brand new website, packed with beautiful imagery, videos and rip-roaring content.
Where to start?
Lets skip to the good stuff.
Watch our new episode for an introduction to HitFilm Pro 2017 and mind-blowing clips from our talented users.
Check out HitFilm Pro 2017’s new features in our bumper What’s New page.
Get inspired by the directors, VFX artists and filmmakers who’ve passed through HitFilm’s community over the years.
Settle down with a drink and a snack and have a dig through our new website. We’ve got pages of detail highlighting every bit of our software – and a HitFilm Pro 2017 overview page for those more strapped for time.
Finally, share ideas, questions, good finds and general life updates with the best filmmaking community on the planet on the HitFilm forum (there are 750,000 of us now, so you’re bound to find a kindred spirit).
What do you get with HitFilm Pro 2017?
We’ve got a whole website full of features and images to boot, so best let you, the reader, make your way around at your own pace. On the blog we’d like to do something a little different and pick CEO and Founder Josh Davies’ brain about this latest version of HitFilm.
Kirstie: “Launch day – how’re you feeling, Josh?”
Josh: “Tired, but happy. Happy that we’ve managed to achieve everything we wanted with this latest version and happy with the amazing amount of positive feedback we’ve had already from our testers. We’ve upped our game and we’re going to keep upping it.”
Kirstie: “What do you personally think is the coolest new feature we’ve added to HitFilm Pro 2017?”
Josh: “I find it really hard to pick a favourite because EVERY time we add a new feature, it’s a mini-high-five moment. I suppose this time around, it has to be HitFilm Pro 2017’s new export queue. It might not be the flashiest new feature, but as my projects have been getting more and more complicated, it’s the key thing I felt was really missing from my workflow. Being able to set it going when I leave work in the evening and know everything will be exported by the time I come back in the morning is fantastic and just makes me more productive.”
Kirstie: “What makes HitFilm different from other software?”
Josh: “Well, software-wise what makes us different is that you get everything – editing, VFX, compositing, 3D tools – in one place. We include as much as we can so that you don’t have to limit your ideas and we play nicely with other software too, because that’s the right thing to do. We’re not possessive and we don’t do subscription fees – you get to keep your freedom.
NON-software wise, I like to think we’re different because of our users and the HitFilm team who build and support them. I started HitFilm as a frustrated creative who wanted better tools – and over time great people who believe that same thing have gravitated towards us which is brilliant.”
Kirstie: “So what are we doing next?” (asking like she doesn’t already know)
Josh: “Something epic. Nothing with StormTroopers, that’s for sure.”
Thanks for reading! Go and have a play with HitFilm Pro 2017 right now – or tell us what you’re most looking forward to trying out in the comments.
