NORWICH, England, September 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Filmmakers will soon have powerful new professional-standard tools with FXhome's launch of HitFilm 2 Ultimate, ground-breaking new visual effects software due for release in Q4 2012.
The headline advances of HitFilm 2 are:
- Advanced video editing, visual effects and 3D compositing workflow in one product.
- 3D model import and rendering.
- Vegas™ Pro 12 timeline integration.
- New mocha HitFilm from Imagineer Systems included for 3D camera solving.
HitFilm 2 Ultimate's new 3D capabilities enable filmmakers to import and render 3D models, providing a rapid compositing workflow. As with all of HitFilm 2 Ultimate's effects, the new 3D capabilities are included as standard and do not require any additional plug-ins.
Over 120 advanced effects are included, from a powerful, fully customizable 3D particle simulator complete with deflectors, forces and sophisticated behavior controls to professional green screen removal and colour grading. New procedurally generated effects will be announced closer to release.
The inclusion of mocha HitFilm, developed by Imagineer Systems exclusively for HitFilm 2 Ultimate, provides filmmakers with a high quality solution for professional 3D camera solving.
The new Vegas™ Pro 12 from Sony can import HitFilm 2 Ultimate projects, enabling Vegas users to work with HitFilm projects directly on the Vegas timeline, trimming and editing like any other video file.
"HitFilm 2 Ultimate had to be even more revolutionary than the original version," said FXhome Marketing Manager Tom McLoughlin. "Adding a couple of new features simply wasn't enough. 3D model support, major new effects and working closely with Sony and Imagineer has resulted in a very exciting product. There's lots more we'll be revealing closer to release."
More details about HitFilm 2 Ultimate, including pricing, will be revealed over the next few months, leading up to the Q4 2012 release. HitFilm 2 Ultimate will be available from HitFilm.com.
