I was just browsing the Boris FX tutorials when this one caught my eye. It's using Title Studio to make a Broadcast Graphics backdrop thing. The more I watched of it the more I though "You can do that in Hitfilm, and that, and that, and that." .
The only thing not possible directly was keyframes to change the kerning on the text, which you could do by separating out the letters yourself. That and the Extrusion option is the only thing preventing you from doing the entire thing in Hitfilm 4 Express. Add the Starter Pack for the Extrusion and you can do that too.
Just goes to show how versatile Hitfilm is if it can compete with a tool designed for a specific job. I'm sure there are (there must be) more options in Title Studio, but if that's an acceptable result, then Hitfilm for the win.
