Simon Wyndham with RedShark News takes look at FXHome Hitfilm v12 with it’s new improvements and changes, and finds it to be a surprisingly powerful VFX NLE.

Here’s an excerpt from the review:

Would I switch to it as my NLE of choice? Perhaps not. I am very well embedded with FCP X and Resolve. However, with that said there are a huge number of effects and compositional abilities that those two NLE’s lack, but which I could perform right from within HitFilm Pro without needing to purchase any extra plugins. But for anyone starting out and wants an affordable NLE that works on both PC and Mac, and represents incredible value for the money, it makes sense to investigate HitFilm Pro as a priority port of call, especially if you are an SFX fan or an aspiring SFX/VFX artist.
