Ok, so I have always wanted to make my own plugins for hitfilm. What I need to know is where do I get started. Where do I go and get the sdk (software development kit)?

    The internal Hitfilm plug in architecture is, I believe, proprietary. I do not believe an SDK is available for outside developers. Hence, for Express, I think you're out of luck. 

    Pro can use OpenFX so that's your platform there may be a SDK or set of guidelines for Hitfilm's capabilities and interface guidelines, but that's a question only Staff can answer.

    HitFilm has a custom extension to OFX that I think would allow plugins to interact with lights and cameras in hitfilm's 3d space. Look in the folder where you installed HitFilm, and under that look in "include/OFX"

    ok, thanks

    so I can possibly make plugins on OpenFx if I use the Pro version?
