Interactive Scopes

Scopes panel

Professional color grading requires powers beyond the naked eye. With the Scopes panel you can carefully analyze and manipulate footage to get the best look. Unique to HitFilm Pro, you can even render out your Scopes panel on a layer from the software.

Vectorscope

Don’t let your characters blend into the background. Vectorscope viewer identifies skin tones so you can adjust color and saturation. See where color has been removed, how to achieve white balance and how much tint you’re adding.

Waveform viewer

HitFilm Pro’s waveform viewer shows you the world in black and white so you can accurately correct brightness and darkness levels. Use the layer-specific view to compare channel separation for green screen work.

Parade viewer

The parade viewer adds another dimension to the waveform color correction scope by allowing you to view and adjust the color balance in ‘blacks’, ‘mids’ and ‘whites’. Analyze specific elements before they are added to your final composite.

Histogram viewer

Prevent the loss of precious detail to clipping with the Histogram viewer. Using a black to white pixel distribution graph, the Histogram viewer shows you how changes in the grade affects the quality of elements in your footage. It even works with filters!
