    Nope. Hitfilm requires a minimum i3 CPU (the Core 2 Duo is under the i3) and requires a GPU. In the Intels at least the HD 4000. Or, better, a dedicated card. 


    Your machine has no GPU. 

    You'll need to upgrade your machine.

    Also note, Hitfilm Pro v6 requires Windows 8 or higher. Hitfilm Express 2017 only Windows 7, but when Express upgrades to the next major version it will need... Windows 8. I've been running Pro 6 on Windows 7, but using an officially unsupported OS does basically mean no tech support. 

  • Hello,

  • Hi obernardojro,

     You probably can run Hitfilm on your OptiPlex but not without adding a video card into the unit since it probably only has Intel HD currently. I run Hitfilm on a similar system but although the performance isn't perfect because of the underpowered CPU, it runs OK with a decent card (preferably 2GB or greater memory on the card).
