(Norwich, UK--January 23, 2015) HitFilm 3 Pro, the latest video editing and visual effects software from FXHOME, is available to order today from hitfilm.com for just $299 (£229).
HitFilm 3 Pro is a post-production revolution, combining high quality editing tools, 3D compositing, 3D object rendering, an industry leading particle simulator and an expansive toolkit for advanced color correction and grading, all in a single product. Over 180 fully customizable visual effects are included plus 130 plugins for use in Sony Vegas, After Effects, Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro X and Motion.
From films to documentaries, commercials to music videos, HitFilm 3 Pro has features for beginners and experts alike, combining depth and complexity with an intuitive simplicity. Modern filmmaking requires you to be an editor, VFX artist and colorist at the same time; HitFilm 3 Pro gives you everything you need.
New features include a redesigned editor and interface, 3D textures for particles, auto-tracking masks, OpenFX support, 3D fractal particle shapes, 3D camera projection and professional de-noising, along with over 20 new effects, background proxying for complex VFX and a 16-bit OpenEXR pipeline. This makes HitFilm 3 Pro an exciting choice for rapid, high quality post-production work.
There is a redesigned editing timeline to give users access to all the tools they need for fine control. Filmmakers can craft projects in the fast, non-linear editor and can switch between multiple 3D compositing timelines as easily as changing tabs in a web browser.
HitFilm 3 Pro includes Academy Award-winning planar tracking from Imagineer Systems, providing mask tracking and 3D camera solving. Sony Vegas users can render HitFilm projects directly on the Vegas timeline. 64-bit architecture and GPU acceleration ensures the best performance across a wide range of hardware. There’s also fully customizable particle generation and a 3D compositing environment, with all elements rendered accurately in relation to each other, making it easy to construct incredible scenes inside a single application.
