Thanks to super secret inside industry information which is entirely fictitious and totally made up out of nothing, I can now give you a sneak peak at the coming arrival of Hitfilm Version 87, a breakthrough version of the flagship FXhome software.
In Hitfilm 87 there is no control panel, no dials or sliders, no panels or workspaces, no manual or instructional videos. All of that is over. So yesterday!
What replaces all the previous controls is a microphone with which you tell Hitfilm what video to make. So for instance, you could say....
"Hitfilm. Make a video of Diane Lane riding a motorcycle through the French countryside at sunset while a UFO looms menacingly overhead. Print!"
You will edit and add scenes by the same method, by speaking in to the microphone and telling Hitfilm what to do.
Anybody who can talk can now make professional level videos limited only by their imaginations. The era of video nerd skills is now officially over, and other such breathless sales jabber etc etc. I mean, ETC ETC!!!!!
How much of our interest in Hitfilm is driven by our desire to do art, and how much from our incurably nerdy natures which seek technical challenges to master?
Do you want Hitfilm 87 if the price tag is that you can no longer impress anyone with your technical skills?
Are you prepared to now compete with nearly everyone on the planet in terms of film making creativity?
Is the video software realm complicated because it has to be? Or because we want it to be?
Please be patient. The staff at FXhome tells me that it could be as long as 3 weeks before Hitfilm 87 is ready for release. Thank you.
Ok, take it from there!
