HitFilm 2 Ultimate

This "Not-so-new" compositing app packs an unexpected punch!

By Kevin P. McAuliffe | November 06, 2013

You have to be brave to create a "new" (even though we are now at version 2) compositing application to attempt to compete against not only Apple's Motion 5 (for FCPX editors), but also the immense stranglehold that After Effects has on the market today.  FXHome is looking to do that with HitFilm 2.
