FXHOME HitFilm 2 Express overview

  • 1Description

HitFilm 2 Express from Fx Home combines non-linear editing, visual effects, and compositing into a unified application for OS X and 64-bit versions of Windows. With tools like 10 track video and 10 track audio editing, transitions, 3D extrusion, and color correction it is possible to finish an entire, effects-driven project in just this program. In addition, broad codec supports means you can work natively in many formats without having to transcode for greater interoperability with third-party tools.

To enhance your video, choose from over 100 visual effects including 3D computer generated gunfire, text, and even anamorphic lens flares. Along with visual effects, you can also insert a new background using the green screen removal tool with spill suppression. Once your movie is completed, you can upload directly to YouTube right from HitFilm 2 Express or save a high quality file on your computer.
