Hello, new Hitfilm user! Congratulations! You've taken advantage of a fine offer from the good folks at FX home!
Before you start asking questions in the forum, may I suggest you try clicking the "HELP" Button on the upper right of the screen that appears when you first load Hitfilm?
The forum always has questions from new users, but, to be blunt, about half the time the answer to the user question is to paste a link to one of the video tutorials that FXHome and Hitfilm users have created.
The "HELP" button on the Hitfilm home screen links directly to the online User's Manual and to the video tutorials. Hitfilm is a complicated and powerful program, but there is a wealth of documentation available.
Additionally, there's the "SUPPORT" section of this website--the button is at the top right of your window right now, in between the "COMMUNITY" tab and your own username. The support section takes you to both the online tutorials and the online manual.
There are many users, including myself on this site who are glad to answer user questions and discuss techniques and workflow, but PLEASE look at the manual and some tutorials first.http://hitfilm.com/reference-manual#about_the_web_reference_manual.htm
There's a link to the manual.http://hitfilm.com/video-tutorials
There's a link to the tutorials.
Hope this doesn't come off too grumpy, but I shall confess--in the last 48 hours there have been at least six forum threads started by new users who's questions could have been answered if these users did five minutes of self research before asking questions, and it does get old answering the same question over and over and over.
Thanks and enjoy your software.
