Softonic review

The best video editing tool for beginners

HitFilm Express is a free multimedia editing software offered by FXHome. As a free product, HitFilm Express is specifically targeted at people who don’t have professional video editing experience or a large budget to support the craft. It is perfect for beginners, YouTubers, students, and people who just want to get into filmmaking in general. Despite its focus on newbie filmmakers, HitFilm Express still offers a wide variety of powerful features that can generate some nice-looking effects. It may not look as polished as other video editing software, but it can still produce acceptable results, especially if you take the time to select and install add-ons from their Add-on store.
