Ignite Pro is back
The title might look a bit clickbaity, but if you take a look at Artlist Plugins you'll see that the plugins names and controls are the exact same as the effects included in HitFilm. It seems to me that Artlist Plugins is the Ignite Pro replacement, not sure why we've been told otherwise.
See here the Cine Style effect in Premiere Pro with the exact same controls (not my screencaps):
Propably there will be some effects missing compared to HitFilm Pro or Ignite Pro, but still it may be worth checking if you miss Ignite Pro or if you're currently using another NLE but miss some of the HitFilm effects. I assume more effects/plugins will be migrated over time.
At EUR 29,99 per month, considering you're getting stock music, stock video, sound fx, HitFilm Pro, Imerge Pro, the plugin suite and a bunch of templates, it's a pretty good deal, especially when you consider the Artlist license, which pretty much covers your social and even your commercial client work, films, etc. (commercial work licence would be EUR 10 more per month, but still).
Even if you need a HitFilm-only effect like the Particle Simulator, Mocha or Foundry's Camera Tracker, there'd be no problem as HitFilm is already included in your monthly subscription.
To all Star Wars fans out there: somehow Ignite returned.
