What’s new in HitFilm Pro 13?
Foundry 3D Camera Tracker
Through the use of sophisticated algorithms, the 3D camera tracker quickly and easily configures ground planes, solves your shot and generates previews for visualization. It can also estimate lens distortion of a tracked clip, allowing you to flatten or re-distort it.
Check out this tutorial utilizing the new Camera Tracker in HitFilm Pro 13 to help create the Upside Down look from “Stranger Things.”
Upgrade to Mocha HitFilm 6.0.3
As well as a powerful new 3D camera tracking tool to play with, HitFilm Pro’s existing planar tracker – Mocha HitFilm – is being updated to be in line with the newest Mocha updates. Bug fixes and minor improvements should streamline the processes of planar tracking and rotoscoping.
Layer and Track Locking
You can now lock layers and tracks in both the editor and composite shots, making it easier than ever to work on your project without fear of accidentally changing something you didn’t want to.
Masking from the Editor
You read that right. Masking can now be done directly from the editor timeline. You no longer need to jump back and forth between composite shots and the editor to fine-tune your composites.
Highpass sharpening is a tried-and-tested technique for refining the detail in images without sacrificing quality, but it’s not a quick process. We’ve introduced an effect to save you time and effort by doing it all for you. Just apply the effect, tweak the threshold and sharpening settings, and boom – you’ve got yourself some razor-sharp detail with none of the mess or hard work.
The unique Tone Coloring tool gives you a new and improved interface for producing that final grade. Use the intuitive color-band interface to drag your each of your highlights, shadows, midtones or global tones to a hue and intensity of your choice.
Remove Stock Background
No more fiddling about with background removal and keying techniques. If you’re working with stock effects or footage, the brand new Remove Stock Background tool can extract the content from the image in just a few clicks, meaning you spend less time doing busy work and more time doing the stuff you love.
LUT Intensity Slider
When it comes to grading, there’s really no one-size-fits-all. When applying a LUT in HitFilm Pro 13.0, you can now decide how much you want to affect the original image with the handy strength slider, giving you total freedom over the final look of your clip.
File Handling Improvements
We know how frustrating it can be when files aren’t importing the way they should. That’s why, with the help of user feedback, we’ve improved our file support so that not only does HitFilm Pro now support files with multiple audio streams, and MP3 files with multiple ID3 tags, but we’ve also improved support for H.264, Cineform, MP4 and MP3 media.
