HitFilm Pro 12: FXhome rebuilds its video editing and VFX software, Finally available from FXhome, HitFilm Pro 12 features an entirely new architecture, for a faster workflow, thanks to GPU decoding on Intel and NVIDIA hardware.
Extra speed and a new user interface : That’s fast, I must admit, and I believe everybody will love the extra speed, but I must admit, having used HitFilm before, that I am curious about the interface. I continue to feel that the interface on some NLEs is what stops people from exploring them further, so the promise of “a new, snappier user interface” by FXhome makes me want to install the software and give it a try. There is a demo version available on the company’s website, so if you are also curious take their suggestion and download the app.
HitFilm Pro 12 is more than a faster performance and interface. FXhome says that besides the entirely new architecture there is also a number of new tools and features for professional editors, VFX artists and content creators. The goal for this major rebuild of the industry-popular video editing and VFX software was to create “a fresh new editing and VFX platform with the kind of performance benefits that professionals expect in their workflow.”
