Just in case anyone is feeling left out, I figured I'd mention that you all get to see this particular feature before the beta testers. At least if you watch the video quick enough. Light Flares aren't in the latest build that the beta testers are using, so we found out about this feature along with the rest of you by spotting this video when it went up.

And I must say, its looking pretty cool, and I look forward to testing it. As new features, effects, and tools continue to be added, all of the work being done by the developers hidden away at HQ continues to impress me. I know they have all been working furiously to get this stuff done, and their efforts and skill are demonstrated in every new piece that slots in.

Cool! Getting me a little excited! Are you guys also gonna target professionals with the software, or will you mostly just target students and beginners?

Define 'professional'. wink Seriously, though, these days it's a more difficult term than it used to be. Strictly speaking, it means anybody that is making money as a profession - which would include yourself with your music videos, for example.

Often by 'professional', people mean stuff like major motion pictures. In that case, no, we're not targeting them. They tend to have very established setups (I'm sure Hybrid knows more about this!), and the super-high-end market isn't what we're interested in.

Everybody else, though...bring it on. smile It's definitely for more than 'students and beginners' - HitFilm will be useful to a very wide range of filmmakers.

Damn my rubbish computer, I should be immersed in the HitFilm beta. I'm going to have stop watching these videos until I get a computer that can handle it. Looks really excellent though, looking forward to using it.

I think by that I mostly meant to ask what are you guy's main consumers for your products? I always wondered who was using Visionlab for example. Do you guys have schools buying your programs for their courses? Small production companies? TV stations? One thing I realize you guys don't do is have short highlight videos of interviews with different people/companies that talk about how using your software helps with their work.

For example, I'm sure VisionLab has been used for some pretty big independent projects, so why is there no videos of people on here talking about how they completed 5000000 VFX shots with it? That would be a great way to encourage people to buy if you guys do this with Hitfilm. Just a thought Lol.

I think, if Hitfilm really is as awesome and easy to use as I think it will be, I'll for sure buy it and use it for my company. Doing music videos helped me a lot with getting funds to get better equipments, but now I'm planning on going back to making short films and maybe another webseries so I think the timing is perfect.

For me the most exciting bit is the 3d interface. It looks very much like after effects, but great to see it moving so smoothly, in real time etc. Right now I'm using Premiere Pro CS5.5 and AFter Effects CS5.5, great combination, but will definitely check out HItfilm. NOt expecting it to replace After Effects, but in some cases it may prove to be faster/more convenient than AE (still the integration between AE and PP is hard to beat!)

It's actually smoother than in the video, as the screen capturing introduced a couple of judders.

Well, I know one school in Germany (near where I live) which might be ordering a bunch of licenses. I agree, doing some sorts of interviews or something like that would be a great thing for you!
For example, why not ask the guys at CorridorDigital, as they were using HitFilm on their yet to come "Prism"?

Hey

I dont know if I ask in the right topic or not, but I just saw the questions about trial versions.

I have googled a bit and been on youtube, and in the info-text on the various sites it says something about a beta.

Is there any chance getting hold of a beta version for testing or is it just some misunderstanding and there is no beta?

Hi Dullen. We are currrently holding a private beta with select individuals. We won't be running a public beta for HitFilm.

Once the software is released there will be a very flexible demo that everybody can try out.
