New Release: HitFilm 12

Welcome to the future! You read that correctly, HitFilm 12, the largest and most comprehensive update we’ve ever released, is now available!

It’s here. You read that correctly, the HitFilm 12 release is now here. This is the most comprehensive update we’ve ever released, and we’re incredibly excited to make this update available to all of our HitFilm users. Whether you’re Pro or Express here are just some of the new and updated features in the HitFilm 12 release:


  • We’ve introduced a completely new UI design! It looks gorgeous, but looks aren’t everything (so we’ve been told…). We’ve also removed the ‘Project’ tab and created a universal menu to make the navigation process a more streamlined experience. We’ve also added Mac native menus for all you Apple HitFilmers, and our Windows users have had native behaviors added!
  • Threaded Rendering will massively improve your experience within HitFilm. Whether you’re working on a VFX heavy project or just using a small laptop for video editing, the interface is no longer tied to your video. In practice this means a significantly smoother and faster production workflow, allowing you to carry on with your work without waiting for HitFilm to catch up!
  • Windows GPU decoding has been ramped up considerably, allowing Intel and Nvidia users to see huge improvements in the way HitFilm handles video.
  • With the addition of professional titling tools, we’re giving you far more control over your text than ever before! After several requests, we’ve put instanced titles directly in the editor, which can be edited without messing around in the compositor.
