Work with 3D models inside HitFilm
Yes, you read that right. 3D models are now supported in HitFilm 2 Ultimate. Bring in .obj, .lwo or .3ds files and render them at high quality inside HitFilm.

Play

Light & shadow

3D models work with HitFilm’s 3D lights and support full shadow casting and self-shadowing. Motion blur and depth of field work like any other layer and you can even apply effects to model layers.
Advanced animation

Animate individual parts — a helicopter’s spinning rotors, the wheels of a car — or an entire model. There is unlimited potential for visual effects, product promos and motion graphics.

Brand new, cutting edge effects
HitFilm now has more effects than ever. From professional green screen extraction to procedural shattering and rolling shutter correction, there'll be something here to get you excited.

Play

Atomic particles

Explore an entirely new particle engine, designed to generate stunning, 3D particle arrays. It even animates automatically to music.
Shatter

Break your layers into hundreds of 3D pieces and have them crumble procedurally based on your own shatter map.
Parallax & 3D extrusion

Turn 2D layers into 3D objects with new extrusion and parallax depth effects.

Professional chroma key

The brand new chroma key provides super-fine control over your green screen extraction and matte work for entirely professional keying.

Optical flow-powered motion blur

Add realistic motion blur to any layer. Particularly powerful for enhancing stop motion and hand-drawn animation. Powered by optical flow technology.

Automatic light flares

There's no longer any need to hand-animate your lens flares: HitFilm 2 Ultimate does it for you.

Major new editing features
HitFilm 2's editor has been completely overhauled with new edit tools, a new timeline design and a massively enhanced viewer. The dream of a fully integrated workflow is now a reality.

Play

Redesigned timeline and viewer

The new timeline and viewer provide instant, responsive feedback about all your edit decisions. Mix audio and adjust opacity with the new timeline graphs.
A bigger toolkit

All the core editing tools are now included: ripple, roll, slip and slide. If you've been waiting to make the switch, now is the time.

3rd party integration
HitFilm does a lot but it can't do everything. That's why we're working with Imagineer Systems and Sony Creative Software.

Play

mocha HitFilm by Imagineer Systems

Every copy of HitFilm 2 Ultimate includes mocha HitFilm, providing planar tracking and 3D camera solving. You no longer need to buy a separate camera tracker.
Vegas™ Pro 12 by Sony Creative Software

HitFilm 2 projects can now be used in Vegas Pro 12 like any other media file, without needing to be exported first. It's a super-fast, super-slick workflow.
