Mmmh, it looks kinda toyish. Like an imovie version of Premiere. In comes with Mocha, though.

The particle effects look good - not bad at all for the price.

Surrealist.

It does kinda seem like a toyish version of After Effects. (which is what I think you meant Titus)

It is being bundled with Sony Vegas right now.

But I suppose it looks like a nice tool-set for the price.

Lighworks looks more pro to me, and it's free. I simply can't understand its interface.

Toyish? As a long time user of After effects I'm thinking this product is more than a toy. I'd call it a smart choice for any young person wanting to make movies or music videos, it really seems to have everything you'd need to produce cool content. I'm just going by what I see, I don't know the output and input limits if any, but for just under $400, it has some serious things in there. The 3D model handling with lighting and shadows, the in built 3D tracker, the fact that its an all in one kind of solution. I might even download the trial and see what it feels like in actual use. I don't know anyone who uses it, anyone who does should tell us what they think.

I'm using it right now, that's what I giving my opinion. The demo version allows you to only export your video directly to youtube (yes, you have to give them your YT password), so it's clearly targeted to vloggers and that kind of video editors.

Particles look to be significantly better in capabilities to Trapcode's Particular which is what I use most of the time in After Effects. Adobe seems to have gotten a bit lazy on their "native" particle generator filters which hasn't seen a real update since Cycore gave them particle world. Geez, what version was that.. 5.0, 6.5?

I like the price, but no support for Openexr. But of you can now bring in your 3d assets maybe you don't need Openexr, but i'll side on yes it needs it.

Looks like the bundle is an express version?
The product looks good to me. It looks like adobe products. And I like sony vegas products and use it at home. Its cheap and does the job well.

This is seriously impressive - I wonder how many developers they have on it? it has a ton of great features. As others have said, the Particle Generator seems very fully-featured - similar to Particular. And it can import 3D models, just like Element 3D - except it also supports self-shadowing. This is an absolute steal for the price. If I was a kid again and I wanted to get into filmmaking, this would be top of my list.

Good on 'em, I say. Shame there's no Mac version though.

Don't the guys at Corridor Digital use Hitfilm? They did use it for Prism, that i'm sure of.
