New Features In Composite?

I work primarily in composite and so I'm trying to understand which of the new features are in the composite section of Hitfilm.  Thanks for any links or discussion.

    If you go to this link:, you can see the new features in Express. Here is a list of important features in the compositing environment.

    • Many 2D effects now have interactive graphical widgets, so they can be adjusted directly in the viewer.
    • Viewer Quality Options can now be adjusted to improve performance in the Viewer, allowing for customized playback and pause quality.
    • Full screen preview available in Express.
    • New layout panel added with controls for precisely aligning & positioning layers.
    • Default preferences for the Viewer panel, such as the default background color, can now be set in the Options dialog.
    • Added the ability to select multiple points on a mask by dragging a rubber band around them.
    • Added support for transparency in all Plane layers.
    • Text layers now support Asian characters allowing users to easily type and render in a number of additional languages.

    For all new features and fixes, you can visit the link above.

    Hope this helps, Jamie - Film Empire

  • Thanks Jamie, I had seen that page but was having a bit of trouble sorting out what were composite features.  Thanks for your list!
