Before purchasing Hitfilm Pro and Action Pro, questions to you with missing answers
Hello there, hope you're having a good day
Although I don't monetize and don't make any money currently off anything related to my creations in the web anywhere, I thought of purchasing the Hitfilm PRO or even up to STUDIO version in the spring sale, instead of eventually purchasing a few of the addons on top of my Express Basic version for my often relatively effect-heavy videos.
However, 209 or even ~348 € respectively is still quite a price tag for a basically hobby, and I got some questions to either the Hitfilm makers or to Hitfilm Pro or Action Pro or Studio users who will likely also know the answers to a few of my questions I can't seem to find the answers for on the Hitfilm webpage, and I also didn't get the answer after asking FXhome's Twitter account twice about it (only the first question):
- How much do the updates cost for Hitfilm Pro and Studio after those 12 months included updates?
- How likely is it to get some notable updates within the next 12 months, in the Pro version(s)?
- Why is the price in € the same as the price in $?
~209 $ Would be atm ~186, that's 23 € less; ~348 € would be atm ~310 €, that's 38 € less.
- Is there an in-depth video overview of a very recent Hitfilm Pro (/Action Pro) version, detailing about what's in there on top of the Express version?
I found this Hitfilm Pro features-overview: https://fxhome.com/hitfilm-pro/features, but with just written text, and as basically noob who used VirtualDub and Windows Movie Maker for years and doesn't know that many effects and what they do, I'd prefer a visual quick overview about e.g. the effects and anything in the Pro version, in comparison to Express. Furthermore, I don't see mentioned there whether at least a part of what's listed on the Pro features is also contained in the Express version, or if everything on that features page is solely included in the Pro version. An answer to this would be lovely!
Sorry for asking so many things, but as I said, I'm not very versed with editors and their effects and whatnot, and before I spend a good chunk of money for a hobby, I'd love to know if that's a good idea, and you could help me greatly in finding an answer to this if you would be so kind to reply to one or several of my questions, if you can
Thank you so much in advance, kind regards,
