hitfilm express 3 has just been released and it is free. You can also purchase extra packs to build up its functionality. Only drawback with this would be you may build up a personalised version but it would still be express rather than pro if trying to upgrade

I bought the full version after discovering you don't get much credit for an upgrade of essential packs bought to accompany the free version. ie. Let's say you spend $60 on add-ons and then wish to buy the full program for $299 that has them built in. You get less than half that $60 as a credit.

I prefer to spend now over losing money later, even if I never take full advantage of the program.

after trying hitfilm yet again I decided to purchase corel video ultimate again. I actually sat with hitfilm long enough to figure it out, but I came to the same conclusion that I always do.

A) its way more then I would ever need and its better as a compositor not very good as an editor
b) I would prefer a full blown compositor from another company due to the plugin availability
c) Blender is a compositor so if I really wanted one .. there is one there (its also fairly decent for video editing but i like the toys that come with the corel package)

I'm a big fan if HitFilm. I do all my composting in it and I do a lot - it's all a learning curve, but I find it easier to use that After Effects and quicker to get a result.

Urban's right though - it's not a great editor. I composit in HitFilm then it's into Sony Vegas for editing.

I did not mind the hitfilm I just found that I needed a good editor first and the other would be you know for compositing which.. I can do in blender if i need to lol.

I have done some composite work in blender and its quite good, but I have not done if for awhile since well I have gotten used to other ways. One day when I get round to it I may re-explore blender as I know they have upgraded the compositing abilities and of course having blender means I have any special affect I would ever want. So I may never invest in such a tool.

This is what I would most likely end up in future if i was to get more complicated. Or the red giant products.. as I love red giant's stuff. Basically I dont need a compositor I is what I am trying to say as I have one that rivals adobe in power and its free (I like free)

Exchange with other post-production programs The integrated alpha channel support of AVI files enables you to import sequences from compositing and 3D programs such as Adobe After Effects™ and Blender.
