Filmer is a custom Blender build from the source code of Alpha Blender 2.81.
Filmer saves and opens projects as .blend files and is fully compatible with Blender 2.81.
Filmer is built to simplify and enhance Blender to HitFilm workflows.
Updated with latest Alpha Blender 2.81 7-30-2019.
Fixes possible bugs that crashes or prevents application startup in Rc2 and Rc3.
Filmer currently works only on Windows machines and has been built and tested
on Windows 10.
There are plans for a Mac version of Filmer which requires funding. Donations
can be made HERE

Recently added: As of 07-30-2019: Bug fixes and addon re-write for latest Blender master api changes.
You must un-install older Filmer addons and install the new addons bundled with Filmer. Simplest way
to do this is to load factory settings in Filmer which automatically uninstalls 3rd party addons. Do this in
<File>Defaults>Load Factory Settings>
Render up to 50% faster than past Filmer builds.
Added viewport render samples to final render which lowers the normal needed amount of render samples
required to render clean images when used along with Denoising. Great with still images and animations.
Material clean up panel. Deletes unused materials and merges duplicate materials into the original material.
Quad curve bridge modifier. Helps convert Blender text/curves/paths and svg logos
to much cleaner quad based topology. Can also be used to create quad based landscapes.
Updated the entire Hitfilm Tools panel with new operations.
Curves panel. Converts a mesh into curves and vice versa for a faster workflow.
Hitfilm Pro Camera and Empty exporter.
Hitfilm Pro FBX exporter. Removed. We'll create presets instead.
Hitiflm Pro OBJ exporter. Removed We'll create presets instead.
Use the official blender 2.8 FBX and OBJ exporters.
The following enhancements speed up render times up to 4x or more, than Blender 2.81.0
Viewport samples can be added to final render for faster cleaner renders when used with denoising.
Cycles code tweaks.
Auto cpu + gpu performance management.
Auto tile size. Best if used with "square samples"
Tweaked "Light Threshhold" in render settings. Value from 0.0 to 5.0

Nothing to install as Filmer is portable and can be used on as many machines as you own without any restrictions. Simply run the Filmer .exe and activate the addons from user prefferances.
At the moment Filmer simply has up to 2x and in some cases up to 4x faster
render times than Blender 2.81.
Purchasing Filmer Alpha gets you 12 months of ALL Filmer updates within that period,
Including current addon updates along with any new addons created within that time period.
HitFilm presets and operations, animation, simulations and all kinds
of other tools for the simplest Blender to Hitfilm Pro workflows possible will be
added as development continues.
Currently Filmer enhanced Cylces rendering only works with
Nvidia cuda and AMD 4gig or higher graphics cards.
Intel intigrated graphics work but depends on available ram.
Keep gear well ventilated and cool as Filmer will cause a raise
in cpu + gpu temperature during render time.
Nvidia cards render 1.5 to 4+ faster.
Amd cards render 10% to 20% faster.
Overclocking not needed or recomended as Filmer will
automatically leverage available cpu and gpu power.
Warning: In Pre-Release do not use for important work.
