workspace layouts between which you can switch at any time without
resetting your project. You get the default arrangement, one for
compositing and one for editing. This way, when you just need to
focus on the edit, you can remove all the tools and panels you
Moreover, the panels that make up the interface of the application can be detached and placed anywhere on the screen outside of HitFilm Ultimate’s main window.
