Today we're taking a look at the upcoming features in the version 12 update for HitFilm Pro and Express the update will be coming out later this month but we thought we'd give you a peek at what's coming soon. The first thing you'll notice is the refreshed interface with the universal menu bar and native windows behaviors, like dragging it to the top of your screen to maximize. Color labels can now be applied to layers in your composite shots and on the Editor timeline. You can right-click and select matching labels to easily highlight multiple clips

Can be edited without going back into the composite shot. Inside the composite of this lower third, I'll right-click Fill Color, select Publish and when I place that comp onto the editor timeline I'm able to instantly change the color inside the Controls Panel. You can learn more about the update in the blog post on our website. Be sure to check out our latest tutorial here, and I'll see you all in the next video.
