We're giving away a fully functional, free version of HitFilm 2 Express, our hybrid video editor and visual effects software.
The free download is only available until February 4th, so head over to http://hitfilm.com/express/free sooner rather than later if you want to make your own blockbuster movies.
Normally worth $149, HitFilm 2 Express may be free - for now - but that doesn't stop it being a remarkably powerful video product, especially for new filmmakers. After shooting a video on your smartphone, DSLR or camcorder you can edit the results, create complex visual effects and upload to YouTube all inside this one application. That's why Freddie Wong, YouTube superstar filmmaker, describes HitFilm as "in our opinion, the single best software package for aspiring visual effects artists and filmmakers."
As well as it's easy-to-use editing interface, HitFilm 2 Express is also the only sub-$399 video editor to include 3D compositing features. These advanced tools allow filmmakers to create elaborate virtual sets and green screen environments, essential for science fiction, fantasy and historical movies. It's easy to start making movies with HitFilm 2 Express but there's also a lot of power for more experienced filmmakers.
"The HitFilm project has always been about getting the right filmmaking tools to the right people," says FXHOME CEO Joshua Davies. "To start 2014 with a bang we decided to make HitFilm 2 Express available to the whole world, for free. Anybody who has ever thought about making a movie but didn't know how, or couldn't afford it, now has that chance."
