Get a detailed look at the color elements and grading in your footage with the Scopes Panel. You can even render out your Scopes panel on a layer from the software - a feature unique to HitFilm Pro.
Vectorscope precisely identifies skin tones so you can adjust coloring and saturation. See when color has been removed, how much tint you’re adding and what color you need to achieve the perfect white balance.
HitFilm Pro’s Waveform viewer lets you see your world in black and white levels to identify areas requiring brightness correction. In the layer-specific view setting, you can even compare channel separation for green screen work.
The RGB parade waveform view is the best scope for easy color correction and balance in ‘blacks’, ‘mids’ and ‘whites’. Within the layer-specific mode, you can analyse clipping on specific elements before they are added to your final composite.
Don’t lose precious detail to clipping. The Histogram viewer identifies potential problem areas by enabling you to pinpoint pixels and see their distribution from black to white. It also works with filters so you can see how each one affects the quality of the image.
32-bit color & 8K
With HitFilm Pro, your ambitions aren’t limited by your software. Retain the greatest graphical fidelity with our professional pipeline from start to finish and work with footage from almost any source and resolution. Grade your footage in 32-bit color for smooth gradients and zero color banding. We are 8K-ready for the next generation of films.
