In Depth

Camera projection

3D camera projection redefines what you thought was possible.

Photoreal virtual shots

Take a photo of your set or location, convert it to a projected 3D scene and create an entirely new, photorealistic shot, complete with 3D camera movement.

The example above was created from a single still image, projected onto several planes.

Easy object removal

Project a clean reference frame onto simple 3D planes and you can remove actors and objects from shots, even with a moving camera.

Total effect enhancement

Camera projection also enhances HitFilm’s other effects. Classic effects such as pond ripples and the new rain on glass can now be applied realistically to any angled surface.

Unified 3D space

The 3D workspace has been reworked to provide more consistency and flexibility across all 3D layers. 3D objects, the particle simulator and the gunfire effect can now exist either in their own isolated 3D space or in the unified 3D space.

What does that mean practically? It means you can put your greenscreened actor right inside the cockpit of a 3D helicopter and you can move a 3D object through a particle cloud. No need to use awkward compositing tricks – it just works.

Alternatively, switch your 3D layers to their own isolated space and you get access to effects and masks, plus a performance boost. Add glows to particle sparks and blurs to muzzle flashes without needing to create embedded composite shots.

hitfilm 3 editor

A new trimmer has been added for editors, making it much easier to preview and trim clips before adding them to your editor sequence. It’s a flow that will feel instantly familiar if you’re coming from another NLE.

Other changes add up to a slicker and more efficient experience. You can now loop play a defined region. Assets can be dropped straight onto the Viewer. Clips can be instantly sliced at the playhead’s position by pressing a key. Timeline thumbnails are now (optionally!) larger and you have a choice of multiple waveform types.

If you’ve only ever used HitFilm as a compositor, now’s the time to try out the NLE features. And if you’re new to filmmaking, there’s no better way to get started, with a product that grows with your skills.
