What is HitFilm Pro for Mac

HitFilm Pro is the top choice for artists worldwide. No need to jump from editor to VFX software and back again - HitFilm gives you editing, compositing, titling and 3D tools in a single product. You have everything you need in one place


Let our powerful editing suite take you where you want to go, faster. From basic industry-standard tools to our own unique technology, HitFilm Pro’s editor gives you everything you need to create a dynamic, snappy edit. With top animation and audio tools directly accessible in the editor, you can copy, trim, sync and slice your way to polished films and video

With our unique sequence and compositor prefetcher, our developers have improved your playback performance with no compromise on your workflow Keep editing without interruptions. Our high-performance system and threaded rendering means your interface will always be snappy and fast, no matter what’s rendering underneath

All the media formats you need

You’ve got it, we work with it. HitFilm Pro supports a huge number of media file formats, including all the most commonly used video, image and audio file types, and a wide range of 3D file formats Work with up to 8K video and 32-bit colour for high-end, professional projects. With an export queue and intuitive presets, you can step away from your desk and leave HitFilm to do its thing

3D models in true 3D space:

Don’t have the budget for a real helicopter? Or a space ship? HitFilm Pro gives you the tools you need to import, animate and composite a 3D model realistically into your 2D or 3D scene. With powerful texturing features (including using layers and composites as textures) and the option to reflect surroundings and cast shadows, it only takes a few adjustments to blend the object into your scene HitFilm Pro’s unified 3D space feature allows you to create layers and models that interact in the same space


Channel your inner J. J. Abrams with Lens Flares that automatically identify the bright spots in your scene for perfect placement. It even simulates imperfect lens flaring from specular highlights, camera dirt, and anamorphic streaks. Add some spark with HitFilm’s lightning generator. Perfect for creating Harry Potter-style wand effects, exploding star systems or throwing electric bolts with customizable branches, colour and motion.


The particle technology in our VFX software is world-leading. Get your images or 3D models to morph into point grids that respond to animation or sound. Use Atomic Particles to create Tron-style holographics, fractal distortions, dramatic dissolves or animations synced to your favourite track.

World’s best Chroma Key:

We don’t say that lightly. We’ve created leading Chroma Key technology to give you full control over edge detail, colour correction, and spill suppression. Create any environments you want. Effortlessly extract your actors and objects with no lingering green edges and use our Matte Cleaner plugin to put the finishing touches on your composite through smoothing, feathering and choking the edge of the key.

Version: 17.0.2793
Definitely appreciate a new member to the film editing realm, but business 101, you can't debut into an existing market at the same price as the top competitors unless you can offer and prove some exceptional contribution to the market...example: AVATAR 2 through 5 is being edited with our software because we can do this one thing better than anyone in the world. Bring the price down to $199. Make sure the free version is 100% with no 4k or hardware accelleration....follow Divinci. Good luck!
