Load a video as a 2D background for your project, and composite all your props and characters in the scene for flawless visual results.
Post Editing in Video Editors
iClone offers exceptional compatibility for video producers who are looking to export image sequences with embedded alpha channels, allowing virtual characters to be easily immersed into other media without the need for chromakey. Create flip books by quickly and easily exporting a series of images in motion. Video export is supported in various formats including; AVI, MPEG-4, WMV for 4K Super HD (High Definition) quality video output. You can turn the timeline output into a frame-by-frame image sequence with alpha-channel ready Targa or Bitmap formats. Image size up to 3000x3000.
Create more shots under tight deadlines while achieving feature film quality results with Houdini’s procedural node-based workflow
Houdini’s artist-friendly node-based workflow offers Film/TV studios unprecedented levels of flexibility and control which will enhance the way you work creatively and make you and your team much more productive. Houdini makes it easy to respond to director feedback and make changes at any time, even deep into production.
Houdini FX | Distributed Simulations
Fluid and PBD simulations can now be distributed to multiple nodes on your farm to create and manage bigger sims. Distribution allows artists to work beyond the capability of any one computer and the results fit together seamlessly when rendering. A FLIP fluid simulation with a billion particles or more is now easily achievable.
PYRO FX | Meteor Splash
Take a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of a meteor splashing into Lake Ontario in front of the Toronto skyline. The visual effects were created by Enrico Selmi using Houdini’s FLIP Fluids and Pyro FX tools.
FLUID FX | Flood And Bridge Collapse
Take a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of a bridge being taken down by a raging flood. Creating by Houdini Intern, Meng Jiao Li, the sequence uses Houdini’s FLIP Fluids, Bullet RBD and white water tools along with the wire solver for grass and tree simulations.

Incredible new VR tools that bring Fusion to a new generation of artists!
Over 40 Powerful New Features
Support for all major VR headsets, incredible realtime viewing for interactivity with VR scenes, support for stereoscopic VR and more.
Analyzes camera motion of live action shots and will reconstruct the 3D camera movement, focal length of the lens, and create a 3D point cloud of the scene. So adding CG and elements to a moving shot is easy.
Tracks areas of an image, automatically finding the tracking detail and then calculating planes of motion that can be used to corner pin, and stabilize images.
Delta Keyer and Clean Plate
Get incredibly clean keys from any background color by using delta keyer’s advanced matte controls which are designed to preserve fine details such as hair.
Apply planar tracking data to rotoscoped elements so they move correctly and follow the motion and perspective of other objects in the shot.
New playback engine and multi shot timeline with support for custom playlists, storyboards, version tracking, annotation notes and more.
ProRes, DNxHR and MXF support for seamlessly transferring shots between DaVinci Resolve, Fusion and other applications.
In addition to standard GPU acceleration, many of Fusion’s tools now use OpenCL so they can compute on the GPU, making Fusion faster than ever!
Hollywood’s Biggest Blockbusters
Thousands of Hollywood’s biggest blockbusters and hit television shows use Fusion to create their groundbreaking visual effects. Fusion has been used on feature films like The Hunger Games, Dr Strange and Guardians of the Galaxy, as well as hit television shows like Empire, NCIS and American Horror Story. Fusion also plays a major role in the development of cinematics for major video games such as Dawn of War III, Halo 5 and more!
Make smoke rise and cities fall with one of the most extensive visual effects libraries on the market. Want to put a 2D green-screened actor in a 3D helicopter model? No problem. With HitFilm Pro, your 2D and 3D layers interact with each other in one unified space.
True 3D power
Import your custom 3D models into HitFilm Pro or animate 3D objects within your composite element by element. Add more realism to your visual effects shots with HitFilm Pro’s simulated 3D cameras, dynamic lighting, customizable shadows and real-time reflections.
Unmatched VFX library
What could you do with over 500 visual effects and presets?
From lens flares in the style of J. J. Abrams to Michael Bay-esque explosions, HitFilm Pro’s range of customizable effects is unmatched. Just search and select from a vast library of animated lasers, energy distortions, warping tools, lightning, electricity and more.
Create realistic scenes from multiple layers and green screens with HitFilm Pro’s 2D compositing, rotoscoping and extraction tools. Chroma key replaces green-screen reflections with real-world lighting using the spill simulation features, while the light wrap creates a blooming effect around foreground elements. Turn a dreary London sky into a California dream with black and white background extraction tools – perfect for stock footage.
Improve your perspective with HitFilm Pro’s depth maps for all 3D layers (3D models, planes and particle systems). Composite different objects together using depth information for masking and occlusion. Get all the benefits of 3D data while compositing in 2.5D with effects and filters.
Import and apply any texture to any model and configure specular maps to appropriately color each material. You can even experiment with normal and bump maps to add additional 3D detail to your model without negatively impacting editing, viewing performance and polycount.
CG particle elements
HitFilm Pro’s particle simulator uses real-world physics to create form-based shapes from a point grid or your own 3D models. Use the simulator to summon a fleet of helicopters or a swarm of locusts. You can even make planets disintegrate to the tunes of Gustav Holst with our audio visualizer.
