Particles & simulation

The particles & simulation folder contains the most sophisticated effects in HitFilm. They are also the most complex, so we recommend reading this documentation and watching our free video tutorials online to get maximum benefit from their power.

Each effect in this category has a dedicated section in the manual:

Atomic particles - 3D, array-based particle system with audio integration.
Blood spray - splatter simulation.
Fire - realistic flame simulation.
Gunfire - 3D muzzle flash generator.
Lightning & electricity - realistic electrical animation.
Particle simulator - hugely powerful, 3D particle simulator.
Shatter - break a layer into 3D chunks.
