Outlining Objects + Creating Pointer Animations in HitFilm Pro & Express

In this tutorial I replicate an effect from FXHOME’s Heads Up video from the release of¬†HitFilm 4 Express.

In the above tutorial I’ll show you how to:

  1. Animate masks on Planes to create smooth animation
  2. Use Set Matte to reveal text
  3. Draw an outline around an object
  4. Overlay the pointer animation on top of motion tracked footage

I’m also giving away four free pointer animations that work in HitFilm 3 and up; you can download them by heading over to the Preset Marketplace.
