Wondershare Filmora is the latest version of a video editing program known for being the most intuitive, easiest to use, software in its field.
Filmora brings users a range of new features, all of which were designed to make an already simple video editor even more intuitive. There is advanced color tuning; you can adjust white balance, light, color, and HSL as well as apply 3D Luts and create custom vignetting. Adjustable transitions give you, even more, control over the overall flow of your video, and the new Pan and Zoom features apply smooth zooming and panning motions to your clips. You can even save your own customized text as preset so you can find it quickly the next time you need it. The new ripple deletes feature to delete all of the effects attached to a clip at once, keeping your timeline tidy.
At $59.99, Wondershare Filmora costs considerably less than most other video editing software. It is a powerful home editing suite with a fully stacked feature set that allows users of any skill level to create beautiful videos. And you can download a free trial version with all these features now.
The main interface has three sections: Media, Preview, and Timeline. It is a standard three-pane editor interface: the source content occupies the top-left quadrant of the screen, the preview window holds the top right, and the timeline spans across the bottom half of the screen. Users can toggle between a dark or light color scheme. Although it is set up very traditionally, Filmora is easier to use than a program like Adobe Premiere due to how simple it is to find and apply its wide range of features. There is an easily navigated toolbar right above the timeline that offers clear options like ‘Text/Titles’ and ‘Transitions’. Any feature you want can be found and applied in seconds.
SD/HD/4K Videos, audio, and photos can be imported from your computer, camera, and smartphone as well as downloaded from social media websites. You can also create videos in Filmora by recording your computer screen or from your webcam. The Media Library in Filmora can be easily organized, making it easy for you to find your clips.
To apply an effect simply find it and drag it into your timeline. For example, if you want to apply a transition, go to the Transitions menu, choose one, and drag it in-between two clips in your timeline. Besides transitions, there are hundreds of overlays, filters, titles, and animated elements you can apply to your videos just by dragging and dropping. Wondershare Filmora uses a magnetic timeline so when you drop effects into separate tracks, and they can easily find and snap to the edges of clips and other effects. You can turn this feature off.
Green Screen, Picture in Picture (PIP), split screen, stabilization, and speed controls are among the advanced features you can use to take your videos to the next level. You can use the green screen feature to make it look like you are flying, for example. The Picture in Picture (PIP) can be used to overlay some smaller videos on a background clip, which is useful for gaming videos and tutorials where you want to use a facecam.
One major strongpoint of Wondershare Filmora is the amount of control it gives you over the sound of your videos. Besides the audio recorded with your clips, you can drag and drop music, sound effects, and other sound recordings into the audio track of your timeline and edit them. Just select your audio clip, open the audio editing window, and adjust the sliders to change the speed and volume of a sound effect and add the fade in/ fade out a sound effect. Filmora even has an audio equalizer you can use to fine-tune the treble and bass of all of your sounds.
