Soon as I saw the email I had to buy. Getting straight to work!
Only thing, needs a new shortcut icon.... Looks same as hitfilm 3 on my taskbar lol
Great to see the new product
Same here! I've bought Hitfilm from express through pro 3 now to pro 4, even though it's not my main editor (in fact I've not even used it properly yet). The price is worth it just for the plugins I can add to my (current) primary NLE. Fantastic stuff.
For my Cooking parody series youtube.com/whatchef I use Hitfilm for all the editing too, just a better workflow to stay in one app as much as possible. So Glad to see the audio features in this new version
"I use Hitfilm for all the editing too, just a better workflow to stay in one app as much as possible."
That's my thinking too.
Yep, got me as well. Congrats on the new release!
Nice to see the 3D object rendering update, I can only hope (and put in a soft request) that Physically Based Rendering (PBR) is in the horizon for Hitfilm as well.
Cook-Torrance IS a Physical renderer. To be pedantic, "Physically-based renderer" is a generic term. For Hitfilm 4 Pro, Cook-Torrance refers to the specific algorithm.
Understood, the intent behind my suggestion is having the Diffuse / Rough / Metal workflow when setting materials on objects.
I would also like to take this time to suggest that I think it would also be awesome if FXHome worked with Allegorithmic to get their "Substances" working with HitFilm as well.
If I want to push stuff from HFP4 to FCPX and vice versa, can this be done? Are XMLs on the horizon?
Can HitFilm4 do sync by timecode? And does it support ProRes444 (import/edit, don't care about export if it offers Grass Valley HQX or Avid DNxHR output options)... ?
@Dewr - you can transfer videos, obviously, but we don't have XML input/export yet.
@WhiteCranePhoto - we don't have any sync stuff at the moment. It's clearly something people really want to see, so it's pretty high on the wishlist now.
If you're on a Mac you can import/export ProRes. We don't support Quicktime on Windows because it's a bit of a dead format in terms of support from Apple.
I don't have a problem with not exporting quicktime, but I do need to be able to import and work with it. This obsession with hanging onto ProRes even though apple's windows support for it is clearly artificially crippled is very frustrating.
I should have clarified that you can indeed import Quicktime files, including ProRes, on PC. You just can't export it.
I also upgraded. Those offers are simply too tempting. I love the Boris stuff.
