Hitfilm Express 3 - Can you still download?

Hello Hitfilm Team,

I have tried to install Hitfilm Express 4, but my computer doesn't give me a new edit when i click to do so. Anyway, I tried to then install Hitfilm Express 3. This time, my computer would let me onto the dialogue box that tells me to get a free license. I click this, and it takes me to the Express 4 website. Where can i get an Express 3 download code, or a way to get Hitfilm express 4 on my computer?

Thank you!

    You can't get a license for 3. What do you mean 4 doesn't give you a New edit when you click it? Does it crash?

  • Hi inScapeDigital!

    Yes, maybe it's not clear in the post, but when I try to open up a new project, I click New Edit but the program keeps loading and eventually another box comes up saying Hitfilm Express 4 has encountered a problem. Would you like to send us a crash report? I click Send report and after a while even that doesn't work and the whole program crashes. I have tried to uninstall and reinstall many times but it still does not work. Express 3 opens new projects no problem but I can't get a license for 3. Please help! Is there any way to get Express 4 working or an Epress 3 license? 

    Thank you!

    I think the back end on the newer one changed somewhat, first thing check you have the latest GPU drivers installed.

    Dinakar can you list your system specs? CPU, GPU, OS, RAM and storage? 

    Is your computer a Dell or Alienware?

    Hi Triem23!

    Thank you very much for replying to my query! I found that my PC (laptop) doesn't have the minimum system specs... The GPU, the RAM, probably the graphics card too.  I now have installed Hitfilm 4 Express on my New Macbook Pro! It works wonderfully though I haven't had the chance to complete a project. I installed it this morning!

    Hitfilm 4 Express is absolute genius! I love the effects and how seamless the program is! And it's for FREE.  Can't wait to get going! Thanks for Hitfilm Express 4!

    Thank you for your help!
