HitFilm 3 Express Special Edition


With Star Wars: The Force Awakens coming closer each day, FXHOME has announced a Special Edition of their popular editing and VFX software, HitFilm 3 Express!

HitFilm 3 Express is a free editing program first released back in July 2015. My original blog post details the specifics. Basically, it’s still HitFilm and has the same¬†basic editing capabilities and core 2D/3D compositing abilities as the Pro version. There are starter packs available if you want to purchase add-on effects at any time.

What sets the Special Edition apart is that it already includes some of the starter packs, namely:

  • 3D models toolkit (import .obj, .3ds, .lwo)
  • Sci-fi adventure pack (lasers, lightswords, title crawl, hyperdrive)
  • Destruction pack (lightning, blood spray, gunfire)
  • Pro light flares pack
  • Colorist pack (curves and color vibrance)
  • Premium formats pack (Dolby AC3/AVCHD and MPEG-2 video formats)
  • Starter pack (3D extrusion, color correction wheels)

Normally these packs would cost about $220, but right now you can get the Special Edition for $169 (-$50)! FXHOME also released two new tutorials, one embedded above and one below.
