HitFilm Pro from FXHOME is an all-in-one video editing, visual effects, and compositing software for Mac and Windows. HitFilm Pro features 820+ VFX and presets, including 360° video VFX, that allow you to make smoke rise, cities crumble, and much more. Create life-like scenes with 2D characters, 3D models, and custom animations, all in unified 3D space. HitFilm also offers an extensive color correction and grading toolset consisting of scopes, curves, color wheels, looks, effects, and many presets.

The video editing space in HitFilm allows you to trim your footage, add and edit titles and lower thirds, add transitions, apply animation tools in composite shots, balance and normalize audio levels, and more. Among HitFilm's many features is an integrated Mocha planar tracking plug-in that lets you position and fix new elements to your live action footage.

HitFilm Pro processes your footage in the background, allowing for more efficient editing. You can also customize your video quality to get real-time playback and polished, frame-by-frame visual effects. HitFilm supports most of the popular editing formats and allows you to mix different formats, frame rates, and up to UHD 4K resolutions on the same timeline.


Combined Timelines

Switch from one tab to the next like you would on a browser depending on your needs. Edit in one, composite in the other, and jump back to the editor without any need to load another piece of software.

Personalizable Workstation

Adjust your interface using the collapsible and expandable panels to ensure you have access to the things you need and aren't distracted by panels you don't. Your personal interface can then be saved as your default layout.

Enhanced Performance

You can customize your playback quality and paused quality. This allows you to experience really fast playback in the editor and trimmer, preventing lagging and making it much easier to time up edits/cuts. Not only can you playback at a different quality, you can now control that quality from the menu in the viewer. This allows you to make faster, snappier edits.

Mask Editing and Rendering

Masking is used to manually create a matte. A matte determines which parts of a layer are visible. Practically, this means that masks are used to cut holes in your layers. HitFilm Pro's mask editing is faster than ever before, enhancing and speeding up the rotoscoping process. As video quality increases, the software must be capable of handling everything it's given which is why performance has been boosted.

Export Queue

HitFilm Pro's export queue allows you to set up a list of edits and shots to export while you're away from your desk. If you close down the software, the export will automatically resume when you load it back up.

Export Presets

Export presets let you configure your export settings for high quality or high compression. Just drag and drop your selected presets, make it the default and move on to the next task. Export is available in multiple formats including 32-bit color and industry standard GoPro Cineform (Win) or QuickTime ProRes (Mac).

Professional Formats

HitFilm Pro's 8K support and RAM preview ensures the best possible quality for your projects. Work with all footage, from your vertical smartphone shots to high-end professional camera documentaries, HitFilm can handle it.

Intelligent Search

Quickly locate what you need with HitFilm Pro's keyword search and find feature for all your media, effects, and composite timelines. Coming from another software system? HitFilm Pro's algorithm recognizes keyword links to help you find what you're looking for.

Video Editing

Animation Tools

A large number of advanced animation tools are now available within both editor timelines. This huge update allows you to create and edit audio and video transitions without the need to create composite shots.

Composite Shot Enhancements

There is a vast number of animation tools, more than ever before, at your disposal in composite shots. For example, you can now animate two shots at once by using the control panel graph and the timeline graph. If you're working on a complicated composite shot, you can work on a scene at the top and bottom of the shot simultaneously.

Audio Hard Limiter

Professional audio editing functionality allows you to normalize your audio without any need for external software. Make all the adjustments you need inside HitFilm to create a pitch perfect performance.

Unlimited Tracks

HitFilm supports unlimited video and audio tracks on your timeline.

Picture in Picture

Picture in Picture (or PiP) is a highly common video style in online content. HitFilm now provides a quick solution for this with the Picture in Picture effect, allowing you to position one clip inside another with different scales and position relative to the layer.

Adaptive Trimmer

You now have the power to re-trim your clips after adding them to the timeline. Double-clicking a clip sends it to the trimmer panel, ready for you to make the adjustments you need. Once the necessary changes have been made the clip on the timeline will be automatically updated.


Behavior Effects have now been added with a whole array of possibilities. Rotate By Layer allows one layer to rotate by a specified multiplier of another layer's rotation.

Vertical Video

HitFilm provides support for vertical videos, creating a blurred version of the original video to use as a background so the video can seamlessly fit alternative aspect ratios.

Compositing and Layering

Add new dimensions to your filmmaking by bringing together 3D layers, models and particle simulations in the same space. Create stunning user interfaces by layering 2D graphics directly inside a 3D model.

3D Camera Projection

Take an ordinary 2D photo and convert it to a projected, photoreal 3D scene complete with camera movement.


HitFilm now offers the ability to copy a group of attributes from one clip and apply them directly to another, or your whole project. Forgot to grade your first 10 clips? Now you can grade one and easily apply the same grade to the rest.

Audio Mixer

The audio mixer allows you to fine-tune your sound for professional quality output. Easily modify, balance, and mix tracks, or get precise control over individual elements with mute and solo features.


Make a smooth segue or eye-popping transition between shots with one of HitFilm Pro's dissolve, push, slide, split, wide, zoom, fade or iris transition features. You can even build your own transition type within a composite shot or the editor timeline.

Dedicated Trimmer

Get your rough cut looking sharp with HitFilm Pro's dedicated editing trimmer, complete with insert and overlay functionality. Cut it even quicker with customizable keyboard shortcuts to set the 'in' and 'out' points in the trimmer.

Particle Simulator


An emitter is where all particle effects begin, specifying where the particles appear and affecting their initial trajectory.

Particle Systems

An emitter can contain multiple particle systems. A particle system is the visible part of the particle effect. The properties of a particle system will determine the visual appearance and behavior of each individual particle at its birth. Once a particle is born, its behavior can be affected by multiple external factors, such as deflectors and forces.

Mobile Emitters

Emitters can also contain mobile emitters. These are special types of emitter that are spawned in the same way as particle systems, but which can then go on to spawn their own particle systems.

Deflectors & Forces

If you want your particles to interact in more interesting ways, deflectors and forces are what you need. Deflectors are collision areas for particles and can be shapes generated inside the particle simulator or other layers on your timeline. This is a great way to simulate particles colliding with real world objects in your live action footage.

Particle Shapes

Create awe-inspiring particle clouds based on 2D shapes or 3D geometry. Then warp them into organic forms with extensive fractal distortion. You can even mix in an audio clip to automate the animation.

3D Objects As Particles

Want to get more creative with your particle design? Simply import your own 3D models as particles to create everything from a fleet of warships to a swarm of locusts.

Post Processing

Take computer-generated particle systems to the next level by adding 2D effects and filters. You can add heat distortions to big explosions or mists over a foggy mountain to give your special effects scenes a more organic look.

Compositor's Toolkit

Text and Titling

HitFilm Pro comes with professional text and titling options. Add 3D geometry effects such as extrude, bevel, and rotate to your text to create the look you want. The geometry supports lights, shadows, and environments maps. Text layers also now correctly support Asian characters. Not only can you copy and paste without issue but you can now type directly into the textbox.

Fire and Lightning

Procedurally generated fire and lightning with accurate behavior and appearance can be further enhanced with heat distortion and post-processed lighting effects.

Muzzle Flashes

HitFilm Pro's gunfire effect generates an endless variety of muzzle flashes, from pistols to miniguns. Unlike pre-rendered stock, these can be rotated in full 3D to work from any angle.

Repair Your Footage

Remove unwanted digital grain from your videos, fix jello-vision caused by rolling shutter cameras, stabilize jittery handheld shots, and remove distortion from fisheye lenses.

Lens Flares

Mix and adjust flares, anamorphic streaks, light leaks, sparkling highlights, volumetric 3D light rays, and high-quality glows to enhance your cinematography.

360° Video

Take advantage of the updated 360° video viewer panel allowing you to view 360° video in its original state inside the trimmer alongside the adjusted version so that you can easily add the all-new 360° video effects.

Puppet Tool

Use the Puppet tool to quickly add natural motion to raster images and vector graphics, including still images, shapes, and text characters. The Puppet effect works by deforming part of an image according to the positions of pins that you place and move. These pins define what parts of the image should move, what parts should remain rigid, and what parts should be in front when parts overlap.

Color Correction & Grading


Use layer-specific vectorscopes, waveforms, and histograms to take your color correction and grading to another level.


Don't let your characters blend into the background. Vectorscope viewer identifies skin tones so you can adjust color and saturation. See where color has been removed, how to achieve white balance and how much tint you're adding.

Color Support

Use 32-bit color grading to add vibrant color tones and textures that jump off the screen. No banding, no pixels, just smooth gradients and future-facing films. You can use work from almost any source and resolution, even 8K UHD.


Allow yourself to bend the truth in each scene. HitFilm Pro's curve effects give you extremely fine control over the final look of your shots.

Color Wheels

If you're stuck finding the right color for the job the color wheels that come with HitFilm Pro will give you every option to pick from.

Extensive Presets

Found your signature look? Save it with HitFilm Pro's color settings presets so you can quickly recreate it in your next project. HitFilm Pro includes hundreds of presets as standard, with many plug-ins for additional power and flexibility.

Grading Toolkit

HitFilm Pro's extensive collection of color grading tools lets you customize your own look and lighting. Each tool can be applied to the entire shot, or specific areas of the frame, to ensure precise color grading. You can even grade several layers at once.

Cinematic Looks

Prep your film for the big screen with HitFilm Pro's classic cine style and cine style effects. Choose from effects like Bleach Bypass, Day For Night, Grading Transfer, Three-Strip Color, Two-Strip Color, and Film Grain to add a flair of drama and cinematic edge.

Hyper-Stylized Effects

Channel your inner Van Gogh with HitFilm Pro's hyper-stylized color effects. Create dream-like sequences or somber moods with effects like oil painting, solarize, posterize, and cartoon.


Give your film bold Marvel colors without spending hours in the studio. Using your LUT plug-in of choice, you can quickly apply your favorite cinematic color scheme or perfectly match the color grade from another clip or image.

Footage Repair

Save the day with HitFilm Pro's professional noise removal tools and digital make-up for your actors.

Damage Simulator

So your shot looks a little too perfect? HitFilm Pro's damage simulation feature gives your footage a rougher look with film damage, TV damage, Flicker, Jitter, Shake, and Stutter tools.

Keying & Extraction

Chroma Key

HitFilm Pro made extracting actors from green screen effortless with the powerful broadcast quality chroma key. Use the chroma key to get high-quality removal from blue or green screen, as well as control over edge detail, color correction, and advanced spill replacement.

Matte Cleaning

Key to the highest standard with HitFilm Pro's matte cleaner tool. Get high-quality composites every time through smoothing, feathering and choking the edge of the key.

Spill Simulation and Light Wrapping

HitFilm Pro's unique spill simulation feature replaces unwanted light reflections from your green screen with realistic simulated light from your new background. You can even add the light wrap effect for a more realistic light bloom around your foreground elements.


2D Feature Tracking

HitFilm's 2D tracker is designed for quickly tracking moving features in your videos. Once you've tracked the feature you want, the data can be used for a variety of things. If you've ever wanted to composite a realistic flying craft into your shot for example, tracking is a key step.

Mocha HitFilm

HitFilm Pro includes a special version of Mocha from Imagineer Systems. Using Academy Award-winning planar tracking technology, Mocha provides advanced tracking solutions for multiple situations.

Importing 3D Camera Tracking Data

HitFilm supports the .ma format for importing 3D camera data from other tracking products, such as Boujou and SynthEyes. Use the 3D camera tracking data option from the Import menu in the Media panel to select your .ma file.

3D Model Import


A number of 3D model formats are compatible with HitFilm. After they've been imported and adjusted to your liking they can them be composited into your scene all within HitFilm.


Animate objects and shoot with virtual cameras and lights, with real-time shadows, reflections, and physically-based lighting that produce super-realistic results. Experience lightning-fast load times, film box support, and added .FBX import.

Import Animation

HitFilm Pro offers support for a number of 3D formats, including OBJ, LWO, and 3DS. Alembic ABC and Filmbox FBX can also be imported with geometry animation for individual models and groups within HitFilm Pro.

Depth Maps

Improve your perspective with HitFilm Pro's depth maps for all 3D layers (3D models, planes, and particle systems). Composite different objects together using depth information for masking and occlusion. Get all the benefits of 3D data while compositing in 2.5D with effects and filters.


Import and apply any texture to any model and configure specular maps to appropriately color each material. You can even experiment with normal and bump maps to add additional 3D detail to your model without negatively impacting editing, viewing performance and polycount. Reflections and lighting can be adjusted to get the right look and feel for your scene, including directional, spotlight, point, and ambient light. For added realism, you can add shadow casting to a 3D scene or switch on ambient occlusion to allow layers to cast and display shadows.

Mirror Reflections

Models can now adopt mirror reflections. If you're using HitFilm for product or corporate videos, you can take a 3D model and create a complete and accurate mirror reflection for a realistic look.

Unified 3D Space

You can position a 2D green-screened actor in the cockpit of 3D model helicopter without any layering tricks! HitFilm Pro's unified 3D space feature allows you to create layers and models that interact in the same space. Add effects like motion blur and depth of field using the software's built-in cameras for a more realistic look.

Doppler Shift

Helicopter landings and revving engines sound as real as they look with HitFilm Pro's doppler shift feature. Simply attach audio to your animated 3D layers and HitFilm will automatically apply doppler shift as the layer moves towards (and away) from the camera.

Specialized Effects

3D Muzzle Flashes

Perfect for any action scene, HitFilm Pro's dedicated 3D muzzle flash engine incorporates a huge 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.

Procedural Fire

Distortion Effects

HitFilm Pro's distortion effects come in four flavors: Heat, Energy, Smoke, and Fluid Distortion. Add industrial grit to your props and environments with jet exhausts, burning fires, and hot proton beams, or create your own Narcissus reflection scene with fluid caustics, perfect for creating the appearance of looking through a liquid surface within the software.

Neon Path

Create neon sign graphics straight out of a dystopian metropolis or middle-of-nowhere motel. Just add the neon effect to text and shape layers to create life-like neon sign graphics that interact with surrounding elements. Bonus: Neon Path significantly reduces time spent rotoscoping light swords and laser beams. After positioning your light sword using the 4-Point Auto effect, enhance it with flicker, foreground, and background distortion.

Easy Sci-Fi Effects

High-quality visual effects are the building blocks of modern sci-fi classics. So we've created a show-stopping repository of classic sci-fi tropes, from star fields and lasers to FTL-jumps, text crawls, earthquakes, and even light swords.

Lightning & Electricity

Use a lightning generator for Harry Potter wand effects, exploding starship systems, or electric bolts with customizable branches, color, and motion thrown by your actors.

Lens Flare Toolkit

Volumetric, anamorphic, and automatic lens flares are all easy to use with automatic identification and application of flares to bright spots in your layers. HitFilm Pro even simulates imperfect lens flaring from specular highlights, camera dirt, and anamorphic streaks.

Warping Tools

Twist and distort your footage for that added cool factor using HitFilm Pro's vortex displacement, Bezier warps, perspective, and polar warps. You can flatten your action footage to match your traditional lenses or use Action Cam Lens Distort, making it easy to layer your composites directly onto footage filmed with action cameras.

Temporal Tools

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