I remember adding HitFilm for Windows only to our store a year or two ago. I was really bummed that it wasn’t available for Mac, my platform of choice. They did a super successful Kickstarter campaign in Spring 2013. People are really excited about the release!
Here are a few highlights of HitFilm, which will be available for the Mac very soon. They are always working on features so I’m expecting to see even more.

Incredible power in an intuitive interface. Fast to learn, with limitless potential for discovery.
Multi-track video editing
HitFilm’s editor includes all the essential editing tools
ripple, roll, slip and slide, plus timeline graphs for opacity and volume.
150 effects included
HitFilm 2 Ultimate includes over 150 professional effects. Design unique, high quality visuals for your projects with vast customization options and an intuitive interface. No plug-ins required.

2D & 3D tracking
Super-fast optical flow feature tracking plus mocha HitFilm for planar tracking and 3D camera solving using Imagineer mocah. The perfect tracking solution.

Camera tracking data from software such as PFHoe, SynthEyes, Boujou and Voodoo can be imported to HitFilm 2 Ultimate, enabling advanced 3D compositing.

Lights & shadows
Create lights in 3D space that cast realistic shadows. Essential for matching the lighting in your live action shots.
Depth of field
HitFilm’s 3D cameras work just like real cameras, with optional depth of field automatically blurring layers based on their relative distance from the lens.
Shatter your videos and images into thousands of 3D fragments, add realistic gunfire to your props, create electrical storms and splash blood across your lens.
