HitFilm Express is a free professional editing tool.

The HitFilm software can feel a little different to other editors you may be more used to, but once you spend a bit of time with it and invest a bit of effort in learning how to use HitFilm it’s well worth what you’ll be able to achieve using it. HitFilm Express packs a massive punch in delivering way more than just the standard cookie cutter editing, trimming and colour correcting tools you’d expect from a free editor.

For a free editing program this thing really comes packed with some really powerful tools for both editing your videos and introducing visual effects to your films. Here’s just a few things it includes:

  • 2D and 3D effects compositing
  • Green screen keying
  • Masks & layers
  • 360 video tools
  • Color grading and video filters
  • 4K support
  • Auto sync audio

There are plenty tutorials to help you get the hang of HitFilm Express, but a little bit of trial and error and throwing clips and effects into the timeline can sometimes be the quickest way to pick it up.

You can also level up your software with little add ons, and a huge range off free plugins from the HitFilm Ignite Express pack
