Do I need to buy extra plug-ins?

HitFilm Pro is designed to be two things: powerful and affordable. When you buy HitFilm Pro you are investing in a comprehensive, high value package.

Many features are included as standard which are only available as expensive plug-ins in competitor software:

  • 3D particle simulator with advanced, physics-driven behavior.
  • Array-based particle engine with fractal and audio-powered animation.
  • Automatic light flares, volumetric light rays and lens dirt.
  • mocha HitFilm for 3D camera solving, powered by Oscar-winning planar tracking technology.
  • 3D model import with self-shadowing.
  • Advanced green screen keying and matte creation tools.

To equip After Effects with equivalent features would cost over $800 in plug-ins – that’s more than double the cost of HitFilm Pro 2017.
