HitFilm 3 Pro is coming very soon and the new version of this interesting non-linear editor will be out by the end of November for the price of $299, however if you pre-order, you can get special offers and additional upgrade discounts. As you might remember, FX Home, the company behind this software, went to crowd sourcing to pay for the development of HitFilm. The NLE is merging a non-linear editor with advanced 3D compositing and over 180 effects, plus mocha tracking from Imagineer and 130 plugins for your other video software. The third incarnation will offer new particle simulator features, a more powerful engine, 20 new effects and OpenFX compatibility. The interface has a new, low profile design and the software even allow you to create photoreal virtual shots - as stated on the official site, all you need to do is 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 (watch the video below to see a sample).
