Is your audience starting to question the nature of your reality?
It could be your backdrop.
Keep the illusion of beauty alive with HitFilm Express’ sky replacement tool. Film anywhere you want and design your backdrop in post. Transform a boring, flat, plain into a breathtaking mountain range, or a drab winter-sky into a sexy sunset. No travel required.
Go full Clint Eastwood (minus the “talking to chairs” bit) with more realistic shotgun effects.
HitFilm Express gives you all the glory of an old-fashioned gunfight with none of the pain of complicated visual effects. Just simply patch two scenes together for a super-quick, shotgun “BOOM”!
Question: How do you make live-men drop dead (without actually hurting them)?
Answer: Post production.
Stunt artists are experts at biting the dust with grace, but sometimes those graceful falls need a little more impact on screen. See how we edited one heroic stuntman’s fall-breaking technique to give his scene a real hard-hitting look. Do not try this at home, kids.
