It's not very often that we come across a free program that is as complete as this one, especially when we're talking about video editing and visual effects. It's a rather simple development by FXhome Limited which the studio presents as ideal for beginners, students, and YouTubers. In other words, for almost anyone who needs to edit video at a domestic level: HitFilm Express.

Main features

  • Powerful non-linear video editing and animation tools.
  • Workstation fully customizable by means of drop-down panels and menus.
  • Very fast editor and cropper capable of simplifying the editing and cutting processes.
  • Over 400 unique effects and presets such as texts and titles, glitter, fire or all sorts of lenses.
  • This software can configure a list of edits to be exported when we're not working.
  • Color and gradient correction tools.
  • Includes a smart search tool for options.
  • And many more functions.

As you can see, anything a user could possibly need when it comes to editing a video can be found in this software. And if that weren't enough, apart from its default functions, it also allows us to download extensions to increase its possibilities. Finally, if after all the latter, the program still falls short for your needs despite loving how it works, you can go for the professional versions developed by the same company, HitFilm Studio and HitFilm Pro.

Requirements and additional information:

  • Minimum operating system requirements: Windows 8.
