Anybody using Hitfilm for animation and or machinima

Hello there

I was wondering of anyone has any examples/thoughts about how useful Hitfilm is in supporting a semi-realistic animation/machinima production.  Odd question I know but as Hitfilm is geared towards film makers it is difficult to gauge how useful it will be.

To give you an example of what I am talking about and the look I am after I use software called iclone and this was my first attempt at a short film: Death by Jelly
