Course Summary

Start editing your videos with Hitfilm Express. Hitfilm Express is a full featured and free video editing software.
The course is designed to be practical so you can start making your own  video in a short amount of time. You can rewatch any video and learn in  any sequence. 

However if you are new to video editing, I suggest that  you watch the first few videos to get familiar with the interface.
Video is getting more and more popular these days as a powerful  communication tool. You can use videos to promote their product, or  service, share ideas or even create social change. 

Off course, you can  also create videos for your family or just for fun.
Creating a video is more than just simply recording it with your camera. Editing your videos makes them a lot more interesting to watch, and effective in getting the result you want.  

This course will teach you the basics of using Hitfilm Express to edit videos.

  • trim, cut and join videos clips,
  • create various types of transition

  • motion tracking 
  •   create realistic camera movement, and more
I've designed the course so you can start making your video in a short time even if you are new to video editing. 

Topics are broken into bite  size tutorials so you can return to it quickly to the tutorials if you  need to repeat it.

You will be able to create your video and move on to intermediate levels.

More advanced topics like multi track editing, picture in picture and chromakey i.e. greenscreen video is also included.
