“We love YouTubers and the creativity they embrace,” says Josh Davies, Founder and CEO of HitFilm. “We want to make sure that it’s easier for the next generation to tell their stories than it was for the last. Anyone can start their journey with us and go on to join the new wave of talented and inspirational YouTube creators. We just want them to make something cool.”
The new HitFilm 4 Express has been designed from the ground up to run on almost any computer; from consumer laptops to hardcore gaming rigs. Much more than just a powerful editor, HitFilm 4 Express also includes professional animation tools, speed controls and over 140 advanced effects such as lightning, smoke and explosions. HitFilm 4 Express has everything a creator needs to get started, but also offers flexibility through a useful set of optional expansion packs with additional powerful features and effects.
