Intermediate Updates to HF 2017 - Is there a changelog?


Is it possible to view changelogs for software updates since the last major release?



  • You can see the changes in the last update on these pages:

    Unfortunately we do not keep a public changelog where you can see all of the updates but I'll pass on the suggestion to the web team.

    Is there anything I can help you with? Were you looking for something specific in that changelog?

    Around this time last year when Hitfilm 2017 was released, there was a discussion about new features being added "mid-cycle" and I think your CEO posted that this sometimes happened, so I wanted to see what had been added since the last major release.

    The discussion on question concerned text-handling and vector\shape layers, and your CEO mentioned that these were on the list of things you'd like to do.

    It's probably in Hitfilm's interest to publish changelogs, at least of major changes, since purchasing decisions may be influenced by this, certainly in my case.

    Has anything happened in text\vector\shape handling in the last year?


  • We've discussed this internally and we plan to add a changelog to the website at some point in the future.

    Even though we have been wanting to improve text/vector/shape handling in HitFilm for a while, this hasn't has happened yet (as of HitFilm 2017 Update 8). It is still planned and we are still committed but I cannot say when this will happen as we keep changing what is scheduled based mainly on user feedback, whether it is via email, the support system or the wishlist thread here on the forums.

    If you subscribe to the newsletter, you should receive regular updates on what is happening in HitFilm and what features are being added.

  • @craftycurate Following feedback, we have added a page that lists all HitFilm 4 Pro & above updates with changelogs. The same thing will come for Express at some point in the future (although most of it is the same as for Pro).

  • Hitfilm Pro 4 -> Hitfilm Pro 2017 -> Hitfilm Pro 6???

    Is that the much awaited Hitfilm Pro 2018 :-)

  • @tonyg There are no more version names, it's just HitFilm Pro. But yes, it is the "next version".

  • OK thanks. I'm out of the running now though as am on Windows 7 and this isn't supported in the new Hitfilm Pro, so it's goodnight from me :)

  • @craftycurate several users in this thread:

    Have reported windows 7 working with the new Hitfilm version even though not officially supported.  There may be hope yet.

  • @craftycurate

    for the moment, the new HitFilm Pro seems to work in Windows 7.

    You could always try the demo for yourself before deciding, if you want

  • I was a beta tester for v6 and went through the entire process with very few errors or apparent bugs. Most annoying thing I had was an occasional issue with Puppet Warp with a large amount of points (I've been out of the country for a month and have not run the final release version yet. That issue may have been a bug?)
