FXhome by Artlist – HitFilm Video Editor & VFX Tool Now Available
Artlist, best known for its vast catalog of music and sound effects (as well as stock footage via Artgrid), has released three new subscription plans (including one free) to video editing and VFX software HitFilm and the Imerge image editing software. Both apps are part of FXhome, which Artlist acquired last year.
When you get into filmmaking, things can get pretty complicated, pretty quickly. Shooting a video is one thing (which can also get quite complex). But putting it all together and creating a finished movie that not only looks good, but doesn’t take forever to make, is something else entirely.
This is where HitFilm comes in handy. Artlist acquired the company behind it, FXhome, last year (blog post here) and they integrated their music/sound effects/stock footage platform directly into HitFilm. Thus, you will get an easy-to-use yet powerful video/VFX editing suite.
If you prefer to edit still images, Immerse, another FXhome app, is here for you. It’s kind of a combination of Photoshop and Lightroom, but without the steep learning curve.
FXhome by Artlist – HitFilm
There are three tiers to choose from (plus a fourth tier for businesses). The first floor is called Free, and it’s free. The other two are called Creator and Prorespectively.
The free version of HitFilm offers basic functionality and unlimited exports up to HD. At higher levels, you get 4K exports with HitFilm Creator and up to 8K with HitFilm Pro. Along with these additions, the higher tiers also include Imerge (Creator or Pro), more songs, audio effects and templates, and some additional software with the Pro level like Mocha HitFilm, BorisFX 3D Objects and Foundry 3D Camera Tracker.
Plus, free software tutorials are included at every level to help you get started with the application instead of having to search for help online.
This is clearly aimed at beginners and not necessarily seasoned video editing pros. But to start without too many worries, the New HitFilm could be a great starting point for budding filmmakers, especially since many high-quality elements such as music, sound effects, and templates are built right into the app, even with the free version. .
HitFilm is available for Microsoft Windows 11 (64-bit), Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit) as well as macOS 12 Monterey, macOS 11 Big Sur and macOS 10.15 Catalina. Full minimum requirements here.
