Biggest VFX toolkit available

HitFilm Pro’s choice of customizable effects is unmatched. Choose from a staggering 880+ VFX & presets, ready to use on any layer or clip. Perfect for every project, from sci-fi shorts to motion graphics and beyond.

3D models in true 3D space

Don’t have the budget for a real helicopter? Or a spaceship? HitFilm Pro gives you the tools you need to import, animate and composite a 3D model realistically into your 2D or 3D scene. With physically-based rendering, powerful texturing features (including using layers and composites as textures) and the option to reflect surroundings and cast shadows, it only takes a few adjustments to blend the object into your scene.

HitFilm Pro’s unified 3D space feature allows you to create layers and models that interact in the same space.


Channel your inner J. J. Abrams with HitFilm’s powerful Lens Flare engine. HitFilm automatically identifies the bright spots in your scene for perfect placement. Craft the perfect flare with full control over artifacts like imperfect lens flaring from specular highlights, camera dirt, and anamorphic streaks.

Add some spark with HitFilm’s lightning generator. Perfect for creating Harry Potter-style wand effects, exploding star systems or throwing electric bolts with customizable branches, color and motion.


The particle technology in our VFX software is world-leading. Get your images or 3D models to morph into point grids that respond to animation or sound. Use Atomic Particles to design Tron-style holographic visuals, fractal distortions, dramatic dissolves or animations synced to your favorite track.

Auto Stabilizer

Say goodbye to unwanted camera shake – smooth out handheld footage with the click of a button using HitFilm Pro’s Auto Stabilizer. Professional-looking footage on an indie budget? No sweat.

World’s best Chroma Key

We don’t say that lightly. We’ve created leading Chroma Key technology to give you full control over edge detail, color correction, and spill suppression.

Create any environment you want. Effortlessly extract your actors and objects with no lingering green edges and use our Matte Cleaner plugin to put the finishing touches on your composite through smoothing, feathering and choking the edge of the key.

Neon Path

A fully flexible tool. Add this to text and shape layers to design life-like neon sign graphics that interact with surrounding elements. Even use it to create irregular edges and Flicker for sizzling lightsabers and laser beams.

Industry-leading Particle Simulator

Play God with this unique and powerful tool. Create particle systems and control their emitters, behaviors, deflectors and forces for realistic visuals like sparks, glitter, dust or swarming objects. Add it to real-life scenes and mix it seamlessly with the surroundings using physics-driven simulation.

Push realism aside for pure cool factor with grid patterns and fractally-warped, audio-influenced 3D forms. Create anything you choose.

3D Gunfire

Perfect for any action scene, our dedicated 3D muzzle flash engine incorporates a massive library of customizable effects. Drag and drop realistic, infinitely variable muzzle flashes onto any weapon in your prop collection from any angle, and at any size.


Our visual distortion effects come in four flavors: Heat, Energy, Smoke & Fluid Distortion. Create jet exhausts, burning fires and hot proton beams, or use fluid caustics to replicate the motion of rippling water.

Behavior effects

What do you get when you want to make Layer 1 move at a multiplier of Layer 2? A mess, unless you’re using our intuitive Behavior effects. From orbiting planets to animated timepieces, this tool is perfect for seamless rotation.

Puppet Tool

Bring static characters to life with our powerful Puppet Tool. The easy-to-use pin and mesh function makes it easy to create natural motion in still images, text or graphics. Easy, fast, fluid animation— no strings attached.


Bring your scenes to life by having characters dodge bullets with motion blur, or bend time with echoes, visual motion trails and temporal displacement effects. Speed up, slow down or reverse the action with a click.

Endless tracking capabilities

Bring Hollywood into your home. Foundry technology has been used to make blockbuster movies for decades by VFX artists at studios like Pixar, ILM and Disney. Now, you get to use this same technology, integrated fully within HitFilm Pro.

Using high-tech algorithms, the 3D camera tracker quickly and easily configures ground planes, solves your shot and generates previews for visualization. Shoot a scene and be confident of the perfect track.
