In anticipation of season 3 of Stranger Things on July 4th, FXhome has created a tutorial for super fans to recreate the “Upside Down” using HitFilm Pro.

The tutorial features an integrated Foundry 3D camera tracker that will be in HitFilm version 13, to be released this July. This new feature should please HitFilm Pro users, as it seems to be a commonly requested feature in forums and comments sections. FXhome will also release the project files from the tutorial for download when HitFilm Pro 13 is released.

HitFilm Pro, for the uninitiated, is a popular and reasonably priced VFX, editing, animation, titling, compositing, and motion tracking tool. The technology is rock solid, integrating well-known professional tools like Mocha, Boris Continuum 3D Objects, BCC Title Studio, and outstanding particle simulator technology.
