Is there a particle engine?

Yes! In fact, HitFilm includes multiple particle engines. All of them are fully enabled in HitFIlm Pro. If you are using HitFilm Express, all particle bases effects can be trialed, but some will require the purchase of add-ons to enable them.

No other video software includes anything as powerful as HitFilm’s particle simulator, which is capable of full 3D particle simulation with multiple forces and deflectors for physics-based animation. It is fully customizable and capable of an unlimited variety of visual effects. The Particle Simulator is fully enabled in HitFilm Pro. For HitFilm Express, it can be enabled by purchasing the 3D: Particles add-on pack.

For HitFilm Express, they can be enabled by purchasing the Motion: Audio-Visual add-on pack.

But that’s not all – HitFilm also includes particle-based shattering of layers and simulation of blood, fire, electricity and gunfire. All of these options are fully enabled in HitFilm Pro.
