    HitFilm Ignite Pro Plugin For Avid MC

    I am seeing a feed in my Application Manager for this plugin for half price of $99.00.  I cannot find any reviews on the plugin.  Does anyone have any experience with it?  Does it do anything that can't be done in Boris Continuum Complete v10? Or the put it another way does it do things any better?

    Thanks for any input.

    Re: HitFilm Ignite Pro Plugin For Avid MC

    I got it recently tossed in as an avid-capable standalone sweetener when I upgraded to HitFilm Pro 2017, but I learned that not all of the Ignite FX were available for use when used in Avid MC, plus the plugin was only certified for MCv8 or above. I don't currently have a BCC license, so I do get a certain "fun factor" with this set, plus some useful BCC-like color fx. 

    I went through all the FX to check them out and felt great about loading them into my MC v7 system, even though there was a certain sluggishness opening them up on the timeline, which I assumed was because I was on a non-supported MC version.

    I *think* you can get a trial version from Ignite's company and test it out. I enjoyed many of the effects and, now on MC v8, I suspect I can use my already downloaded plugin from a few months ago. 

    I recall that either HitFilm or Ignite's company had a thorough webpage listing which effects were available on MC vs. Hitfilm vs Adobe, etc. Plus videos of each FX.

    Sorry, but I don't remember any particular must-have effect.

    Thanks,

    I appreciate the feedback.  I am going to look at the website to see exactly what is included in the package.

    I was able to download the trial version of the Ignite Pro plugin.  I was unimpressed.  I think (for me at least) that the effects in BCC 10 are better and give me more control over what I am trying to do.

    Too bad but good to know, Denny.

    Had a look at the Hit Film site and the Hit Film editor is a very interesting combination of compositor (with 3D) and editor and audio suite all rolled into one. The on-line tutorials are very flashy. It looks like an amazing product in many respects. They even have a version of Mocha integrated (looks like a Mocha lite of some sort) and support for a variety of plugins from 3rd party vendors including NewBlue and BorisFX, I believe.

    Cheers

    Re: HitFilm Ignite Pro Plugin For Avid MC

    My total Cost for the latest HitFilm 2017 was an initial (discounted) $150 U.S. a couple years ago, for Hitfilm Pro3, which introduced me to a basic version of Mocha- which because it just fascinated me, I had to check out. It was the main reason I bought the original license.

    I skipped purchasing an upgrade to Hitfilm Pro4, but now after another $150 upgrade. I have their current, standard 3-PC license for HitFilm 2017, including a 3-pc Ignite FX license, which works inside Media Composer v8. 

    Hitfilm has an active, upbeat community forum like ours and numerous online how-to tutorials, customer showcases, and they give away some FX files- fire/explo/gunfire imagery- which seems (disturbingly?) popular with what I suspect is a "first-NLE" customer base that wants create sci-fi and thriller movies or add those FX to their existing home videos). So, it is literally an aggressive assault on MC and all the traditional NLE players. It provides/teaches editing basics as a by-product of very capable, yet amateur-friendly special effects/3D software. 

    It seems the folks behind Hitfilm came up with a unique marketing angle, focusing on "video magic". For editorial, I would never leave MC for it, but I needed and I am glad I now have a solid tool on my PC to do AE-type work with 4K and 3D without having to sign on to Adobe for whatever their yearly renewal plan is. 

    I *believe* Boris bought the company that makes Mocha. I received a $399 offer to buy a Hitfilm-only Pro version of Mocha, but I decided instead to grab the Avid Symphony + reinstatement deal instead.
