3D models in true 3D space: Don’t have the budget for a real helicopter? Or a spaceship? HitFilm Pro gives you the tools you need to import, animate and composite a 3D model realistically into your 2D or 3D scene. With physically-based rendering, powerful texturing features (including using layers and composites as textures) and the option to reflect surroundings and cast shadows, it only takes a few adjustments to blend the object into your scene. HitFilm Pro’s unified 3D space feature allows you to create layers and models that interact in the same space.
Lens Flares & Lighting Effects: Channel your inner J. J. Abrams with HitFilm’s powerful Lens Flare engine. HitFilm automatically identifies the bright spots in your scene for perfect placement. Craft the perfect flare with full control over artifacts like imperfect lens flaring from specular highlights, camera dirt, and anamorphic streaks. Add some spark with HitFilm’s lightning generator. Perfect for creating Harry Potter-style wand effects, exploding star systems or throwing electric bolts with customizable branches, color and motion.
Particle Effects: The particle effects technology in our VFX software is world-leading. Get your images or 3D models to morph into point grids that respond to animation or sound. Use Atomic Particles to design Tron-style holographic visuals, fractal distortions, dramatic dissolves or animations synced to your favorite track.

World’s best Chroma Key: HitFilm's leading Chroma Key technology to give you full control over edge detail, color correction, and spill suppression all within your VFX software. Create any environment you want. Effortlessly extract your actors and objects with no lingering green edges. Our Matte Cleaner effect puts the finishing touches on your composite through smoothing, feathering and choking the edge of the key.
Neon Path Effect: A fully flexible tool. Add Neon Path to text and shape layers for creative text effects and neon signs that interact with their surroundings. Even use it to create irregular edges and Flicker for sizzling light-swords and laser beams.
Industry-leading Particle Effects: create particle systems and control their emitters, behaviors, deflectors and forces for realistic visuals like sparks, glitter, dust or swarming objects. Add it to real-life scenes and mix it seamlessly with the surroundings using physics-driven simulation. Push realism aside for pure cool factor with grid patterns and fractally-warped, audio-influenced 3D forms. Create anything you choose.
