I am such an idiot.  I mainly needed the demult filter for After Effects, and I knew it was in the free "Express" version of Impact.  yesterday, I *just* gave away my keys for HitFilm Pro, Impact Pro, and Action Pro to someone just getting started.  Now, when I went to add "Impact Express" to my newer PC, I click the "Get Free License option after install, and it just keeps sending me to the HitFilm Express download page.  I would go through the process of downloading HitFilm Express, again, thinking that just may be the process of getting the free license for the "Express" version of Impact.  Maybe I should have just saved those keys for HitFilm pro and Impact Pro for myself, but I was trying to help someone out.

Can Anyone Tell me what I am doing wrong when trying to get the free "Express" license for Impact?  I Deactivated all my old license for HitFilm installs, thinking it may share the same license key as HitFilm, but that didn't help.

    Ignite Express is as discontinued product which is has not been available for some time. Therefore, there are two options:

    If your main criteria is price, HitFilm Express is our free product, and it does include the Demult effect. But it is a standalone application. http://fxhome.com/hitfilm-express

    If having the tool as a plugin for AE is more important than price, then Ignite Pro is our plugin collection, which supports After Effects and includes Demult: http://fxhome.com/ignite-pro

  • I think my big facepalm right now is that I had everything installed on my old PC, but I had not set everything up on my new PC.  I knew I could get demult for After Effects, for free... or could.   I also had licenses for HitFilm Pro, Impact Pro, and Actio Pro.  As I was setting up my graphics apps on my new PC, I came across my licenses from a month or so ago, and I knew a lady trying to get started, as I was about a year ago.  I offered the three licenses to her.  I was fortunate to get the licenses through Humble Bundle, because I cannot afford the full license price.  So, my issue is that I just gave away something expensive that I thought I didn't need.  Then, I find out that I do need it, since the Express edition no longer exists that includes that filter, and I can't live with watermarks over everything.
