Back in May we reported on FXhome's Kickstarter campaign to release a Mac version of their FX package "HitFilm 2" The Kickstarter campaign was a huge success and today sees the release of HitFilm 2 for the Mac

HitFilm was first released for the PC in 2011 and has been enthusiastically received by a new generation filmmakers with huge ideas and tiny budgets. Pc Pro magazine called it: "An ambitious new application that delivers stunning video effects at a breakthrough price."

With the release of HitFilm 2 Ultimate FXhome brought us a package capable of Editing, 2D and 3D compositing, integration of 3D models and text, Particle animation, Lights, Flares, Gun effects and explosions and much, much more all for a price of just $399. You can see what is included here.

Mac Envy

Mac users must have looked on with envy as one of the most common requests the team at FXhome received was "When will you do a Mac version?"

FXhome are a relatively small British company without the resources to throw a whole programming team at rewriting the code for Mac so they came up with the idea of a Kickstarter project.

Originally launched on May the 8th with a target of £25,000 the project smashed it's goal and ended at £58,126 on June the 7th, now just five months later FXhome have released the Mac version of HitFilm 2 Ultimate.
