In the newest version of Hitfilm, are there any effects that are still exclusive just to the pro version.
If i remember aright the only thing (other than cost) is: #1 Open FX compatibility. #2 the abilety to install on more than one computer (up to three i think). there is one more i cant remember.
Depth Map Depth Matte and one other effect are Pro Only
Note that buying all add-ons is over twice the cost of buying Pro.
Also, Pro supports resolutions up to 8K, while Express supports resolutions up to 4K. And HitFilm Pro fully supports third party OFX plugins, while Express only supports specific third party plugins as add-ons (Mocha HitFilm, Boris 3D Objects).
I've noticed that Express won't accept any files from the Mocha Pro Standalone, such as Hitfilm projects exported from Mocha. HitFilm just gives an error that Mocha HitFilm must be installed, which seems kind of dumb.
@PhilNolan - HitFilm Express does not support third party OFX plugins, as mentioned in the post immediately prior to yours. You have to purchase the Mocha HitFilm add-on to use Mocha in HitFilm Express. Mocha HitFilm and Mocha Pro are completely separate products.
@PhilNolan import the mocha files into Pro, save the project, then load it into Express.
Agree with PhilNolan
