so when I opened Hitfilm 4 Express for the first time (and still now)
the log in/activation page doesn't appear!!!
Might that be because there isn't one at startup?What page do you see when you start it up?
You can access the activation window at any time through the HitFilm Options (Preferences on Mac), and clicking the Activation tab. If you need further assistance, please contact support.
What about Windows pc?
@ArvinLim on Windows, click "File", then the "Options" button in the blue bar of the dialog.
Once inside HitFilm's options the process is the same on Windows or Mac - there is an Activation tab with an "Activate program..." button.
It looks like you're new here. If you want to get involved, click one of these buttons!
