We believe everyone should be able to create something cool. It’s why we made HitFilm Express, and why we started giving it away to filmmakers for free. In this latest release, we’ve crammed a whole load of new editing and visual effects tools into an already powerful package.

Do you want to see what HitFilm Express 2017 can do (with a little help from Film Riot)? Check out our new short film WESTWORLD TO YUMA for some inspiration.

We’re always listening to our bumper filmmaker community for feedback and feature ideas. That’s why we’re super excited to unveil what’s new in this version.

We know you guys are going to love the new support for 4K videos, updated 360° video tools and new in-built audio mixers (just to name a few). The fun doesn’t stop there though, here’s a full list of the awesome new and updated features of HitFilm Express 2017:
