HitFilm 4 Pro Update #2

Here’s what we did over Christmas.
What better way to kick off the new year than with a big HitFilm 4 Pro free update? There are a lot of fixes in this one, so we recommend updating as soon as you can.

HitFilm 4 Pro Update #1

New GoPro workflow + interface improvements.
HitFilm 4 Pro’s reception has been stunning, with a huge number of people upgrading or jumping on board for the first time. Early coverage has also been very positive.

New Release: HitFilm 4 Pro

We’re very excited!
HitFilm 4 Pro is out now and you can start using it immediately. As you’d expect, it’s packed full of massive new features and improvements.

The Evolution of HitFilm 3 Pro

We’ve done a lot of great things together. It’s been a busy year since HitFilm 3 Pro was revealed to the world in October 2014. We’re not a company that releases a product then forgets about it, so there have been free updates, over 30 new video tutorials, collaborations with great OpenFX devs and filmmakers like Ryan Connolly and a completely free version of HitFilm for students.

The visual effects of Agents of SHIELD

We recently had the good fortune of encountering Mark Kolpack, Emmy-nominated visual effects supervisor on none other than Marvel’s Agents of S.H.IE.L.D. for ABC. We’re big fans of Marvel’s movie and TV work, not least due to our collaborations with Territory Studio, and even in an established studio setup such as on SHIELD, HitFilm offers interesting new ways to create super fast previz.

How to win 48-hour film contests

Atomic Productions is run by the Adams twins, Andrew and Ben. We first encountered them when they were just starting out, about a decade ago, and with each project they’ve challenged themselves to do better. The results speak for themselves – they’re now professional producers of music videos and corporate videos in Austin, Texas while creating artfully crafted short films in their spare time.

Corridor Mad Max: Roadkill BBQ

Top 15 filmmaking tips from Corridor Digital

While at VidCon, the HitFilm team attended not one but TWO of Corridor Digital’s panels titled ‘Getting Started with Special Effects’ (which also included talented filmmakers Brandon Laatsch, Joe Penna and Zach King) and ‘Pixel Masters – A Corridor Digital Q&A’ to get more insight into their process.

VidCon is a creative revolution

Creator culture is real. And it’s inspiring. If you’ve never actually attended, you might think that VidCon wasn’t worth the money or the time. Even in the face of over 200 ‘social’ millionaires worldwide, the idea of a conference built around YouTube and its creators has some people raising their eyebrows.

HitFilm 3 Express is here!

UPDATE: HitFilm 4 Express is out now! It’s like HitFilm 3 Express but bigger and better with even more free stuff.

Be a sustainable filmmaking hero

Did you know that a two year study conducted by the University of California showed that special effect explosions, vehicles and diesel generators on Hollywood productions make the film and television industry second only to the oil industry in terms of polluting emissions, as well as being incredibly resource and energy consuming?
