HitFilm Ignite Pro 2017, developed by SFX-specialist FXHome, is a comprehensive collection of high quality video effects and tools all available as plug-ins within EDIUS. The more than 140 EDIUS compatible effects include customizable lens- and light flares, tools for keying, compositing and color grading as well as excellent video filters. Almost all of the more than 500 effects, presets and tools are key frame controllable.
Ignite was originally developed as a collection of effects to be used with HitFilm. Very soon HitFilm became known as a very powerful and cost saving alternative for compositing solutions like After Effects. In the course of time more and more applications were supported. Currently Ignite supports the following programs: Grass Valley EDIUS 8, Adobe After Effects, Adobe Premiere, Apple Final Cut Pro X, Apple Motion, Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve, Vegas Pro, Sony Catalyst Edit, NUKE by The Foundry.
Thankfully HitFilm choose not to bring separate versions to market. You can instead use Ignite with different programs at the same time. So you may work with solutions like EDIUS, After Effects and Resolve on one computer and only one license of Ignite. This is an important, cost saving argument if you do work with several programs or maybe plan to switch to another solution in the future.
The license terms are very user-friendly as well as they allow Ignite to be installed on up to three computers. Before purchase you may of course test the trial version free of charge which can be turned into a full version by just entering the serial number. You can find the download link of the trial version at the bottom of this page.
Try out Ignite and see how the effects enhance your footage. You will be amazed!
It would just be impossible to demonstrate all effects in this summary, because many of the over 140 plug-ins contain multiple presets and variations. Let us therefore point out some of the effects and tools we have featured in the demo video.
