I love HitFilm and I have been using it to edit, animate, composite, etc for several years now. I love how intuitive the software is for me, the support I've encountered, and just the overall vision that FXHome has for the software. I recently acquired access to Adobe's Creative Cloud and have been dabbling in in After Effects. There's been a significant learning curve as far as After Effects' interface and I've found myself drifting back towards HitFilm.
This post is not intended to be a comparative discussion about Adobe versus FXHome. Rather, I'm seeking advice from other filmmakers and animators. HitFilm studio was released and I'm very conflicted on whether I should try to transition to primarily using After Effects and Premiere or if I should purchase the updgrade for HitFilm and use all of the softwares in conjunction.
I would like to pursue film as a career and I'm not sure how applicable HitFilm-exclusive skills will be in a studio-type workplace but I would love to continue my relationship with HitFilm. I would really appreciate any advice or wisdom that anyone has to offer in this situation. If there's any questions I could answer to help those reading to better understand my concerns and uses, please ask. Thanks in advance.
