Norwich, 27 October 2014FXHOME has announced that the latest version of its cutting-edge video editing and visual effects software, HitFilm 3 Pro, is now available for pre-order from hitfilm.com for just $299 (£229), ahead of its release at the end of November 2014. 

HitFilm 3 Pro is a post-production revolution, combining high quality editing tools, 3D compositing, 3D object rendering, an industry leading particle simulator and an expansive toolkit for advanced colour correction and grading, all in a single product.

From films to documentaries, commercials to music videos, HitFilm 3 Pro has features for beginners and experts alike, combining depth and complexity with an intuitive simplicity. Modern filmmaking requires you to be an editor, VFX artist and colourist at the same time: HitFilm 3 Pro gives you everything you need.

New in HitFilm 3 Pro is a redesigned editor and interface, 3D textures for particles, auto-tracking masks, OpenFX support, 3D fractal particle shapes, 3D camera projection and professional de-noising.

The redesigned editing timeline gives users access to all the tools they need including slip, slice, ripple and roll edits, audio meters, key-framing and a new trimmer for fine control. Filmmakers craft projects in the fast, non-linear editor and can switch between multiple 3D compositing timelines as easily as changing tabs in a web browser.

HitFilm 3 Pro includes Academy Award-winning planar tracking from Imagineer Systems, providing mask tracking and 3D camera solving. Sony Vegas users can render HitFilm projects directly on the Vegas timeline. 64-bit architecture and GPU acceleration ensures the best performance across a wide range of hardware.

Filmmakers can generate thousands of particles with HitFilm 3 Pro, all of which are fully customisable in true 3D, from fleets of spaceships or swarms of creatures through to swirling snow, driving rain or thick dust and debris from an explosion.
