I have HitFilm4 Pro and I am interested the the 3d animation part of it. I am very impressed with Alembic animated files but trying find software that isn't a per month deal is hard. Doesn't anybody make abc file software that is a one time purchase? I am doing strictly as a hobby. If something can be edited now in some software I could care less if there is a new feature available in the future. I mean if a piece of 3D software can do it now that's good enough for me. Paying $1,000's annually for a piece of software for a hobby is ludicrous. I hear about animation of 3d files is possible but what are the differences between animating 3d files and 3d Alembic files and editing of them. I guess being a hobby, if I can get decent animation from other 3d formats I guess I'd stick with that but I haven't really seen any examples of normal 3d files besides making a wheel turn or propellers turn.
