How do you like HITFILM 3?. Wpould love to hear some reviews from Stormers...!!!
After I had a go at the feature set I went out and bought the $300 Pro edition. It's effin' amazing.
Unfortunately, it looks like everything that floored me about Hitfilm wasn't part of Express, so I don't really know how much of an endorsement that is. I can say, however, that compared to products like After Effects, etc. it's worth every penny, especially now that Adobe's gone to their yearly subscription model. Full license for Hitfilm 3 Pro is less than a years' sub for After Effects.
Even so, the base Hitfilm editor is fantastic; multiple tracks, wipes, great interface and organization. Much more flexible than the Cutting Room in MovieStorm or even other programs I've used like AVS4YOU or Windows Movie Maker/iMovie.
For free, there's no reason not to give it a whirl. If you really like it, I would totally get a copy of Pro and support the team. They're doing amazing work.
