21st-century filmmaking requires you to be an editor, VFX artist and colorist at the same time. HitFilm Express gives you a head start, merging professional 3D compositing and over 122 effects with its editing tools.

HitFilm is designed for speed. On fast machines, you enjoy real-time playback thanks to 64-bit architecture and GPU-acceleration, even when jumping between your edit and visual effects shots. More complex shots get proxied in the background while you keep working.

A high-end desktop computer will make HitFilm fly but mainstream notebooks and family computers are just fine. You don’t need a supercomputer to be a filmmaker.

With HitFilm 4 Express, you can edit videos, composite visual effects elements, edit audio and can do much more. To view the entire list of Technical Specifications, click here.
