HitFilm Ultimate Video Software is an application that allows you to edit your videos / movies and create various special effects. Being easy to use, it analyzes the videos and helps you guide which project settings to use. All your videos, images, and audio clips are arranged in a convenient way by the Project Media list.
With multi-track editing, unlimited video and audio tracks can be edited from short films, video blogs, and holiday videos. Visual effects can be added to your movies just by the click of a button, which converts any clip on your timeline into a composite shot, without even leaving the HitFilm Ultimate. Editing can be further enhanced with variety of high quality video and audio transitions like ‘fades’, ‘dissolves’, and ‘animated wipes’.
Over 90 2D effects for blurring, sharpening, distorting, warping, color correcting, and stylizing are available, which can be combined with each other to produce entirely different results. The 3D particle simulator is fully customizable and creates a wide range of visual effects. Multiple deflectors and forces can be applied to particle effects, causing particles to bounce and collide with other layers or to be pushed in different directions by wind and gravity. 3D pre-built effects for drag-and-drop smoke, fire, explosion, and shockwave are available that will enhance the naturalness and viewing experience of your movies. 3D Gunfire technology creates an infinite variety of fully 3D muzzle flashes to suit any weapon, which will help you intensify the shootouts in the action movies. Varieties of effect presets are available which can be created and saved for later use.
You can work on multiple composite shots in a single project and save it later onto your editor timeline like an ordinary video file. Using 2D composting, multiple layers are combined together and over 90 built-in effects can be put to use. You can composite green screen besides mixing video and images together to create brand new shots. 3D composting allows you to create unique visuals by moving the video layers in and around article systems to create stunningly interactive VFX shots. Multiple virtual cameras enable you to shoot 3D shots. The 3D lighting creates entirely virtual scenes or matches the lighting from a live action shot by mixing different lights together and gives full control over ambient, spot, point, and directional lights. While working on 3D, you can use the automatic shadow casting, which interact naturally with layers, 3D effects, and lights giving you a more realistic feel. The optional depth of field automatically blurs layers based on the relative distance from the lens.
You can turn on the automatic motion blur for experiencing more realistic movement of the 2D and 3D layers. The masking tools (2D masks) helps you create interaction between layers, polish the edges of green screen shots, and deleting unwanted parts of an image or video. 3D masks produce realistic visuals when combined with deflectors. Text can be created and animated in 2D/3D using the font on your computer. You can split your viewer into 4 separate perspectives while working on 3D for easy positioning of layers.
An extensive range of color filters and effects are provided for presenting your movies in a better way. The 'film look' presets will give your movies a professional appearance whether you are aiming to make a Hollywood blockbuster or a documentary. Along with the multiple export formats, you have full control over the exported videos. YouTube videos are automatically converted to HD format before they are uploaded to your channel. You can promote your movie through the HitFilm website and YouTube channel by adding your movie to the HitFilm global playlist.
Using GPU acceleration, the Ultimate Software provides a high speed performance even while you are working in full 3D with complex particle simulation. Most common video, image and audio formats like WMV, MP4, AVI, MOV, and MXF are compatible. The Software allows you to undo or redo your work as you have full access to your actions through the History panel. Being compatible with most camera tracking data applications, you can create handheld visual effects shots using the 3D camera tracking data import.
