FXhome has announced the release date of its HitFilm 2 Ultimate video editing and visual effects software. HitFilm 2 Ultimate offers video editing, visual effects and compositing in one package for creative filmmakers. Thanks to a highly successful Kickstarter campaign earlier this year (raising £58,126 – more than double the £25,000 goal), the independent UK-based developer has been able to complete the Mac version of the software for release in 2013. Previously only available for Windows PCs, the new release will come with two installers, Mac and PC, for up to three machines per licence. New customers who purchase HitFilm 2 Ultimate can choose whether to download the Mac or PC installer, or both. All existing HitFilm users will automatically get access to the Mac version at no extra cost and the PC version will also get an update with new features. HitFilm 2 Ultimate will be available from 4 November 2013 for $399 / £299..
