I'm a fairly new Hitfilm user, but I was incredibly excited when I learned that Khan Academy would be hosting another Breakthrough Junior Challenge this year (to make a 5-minute video about a difficult science topic).
Having just finished a FutureLearn course on Hitfilm, and coming from a background in Premiere Pro, I created a video about genetic modification. I did lots of basic animation, plus some motion tracking and keying. Also, since the audio wasn't that great, I re-recorded large portions of it using Audacity.
I'm planning on making future videos about science topics on this channel, which I'll probably post here if people are interested.
So, what do you guys think? What can I improve for future projects?
