AVCHD/ AC3 and MPEG-2 audio formats

The AVCHD/Dolby AC3 and MPEG-2 formats require licensing fees, which means we can't include them for free in HitFilm Express. If your camera uses these formats you can activate them in Express with the Premium Formats pack, available for $9.99 from the HitFilm.com Store.

Check your camera's user guide to find out what format it records. If it uses AVCHD there will probably be a logo on the side of the camera itself.

If you do not use AVCHD/ Dolby AC3 or MPEG-2 files you do not need the Premium Formats pack.

Buy the pack from the store.
