Filmora: The ultimate video editing tool for social media content creators.

Reviewed a year ago

As an IT intern at the University, I had the opportunity to use Filmora to create tutorial videos and promotional materials. My experience with the tool was very positive. The user interface was very easy to use, and I was able to create professional-looking videos quickly. Additionally, the tool includes a wide variety of templates and effects that allowed me to create more attractive videos. I also appreciated the audio library, which helped me improve the audio quality of some videos.

Pros

Filmora is a comprehensive video editing tool that is suitable for beginners and professionals alike. The user interface is easy to navigate, and the tool includes a wide variety of templates, filters, and effects to enhance your videos. Additionally, Filmora has a vast library of audio tracks that you can use to enhance your videos' audio quality. The tool also allows for screen recording, making it an excellent option for creating tutorial videos.

Cons

One of the main limitations of Filmora is that it can be a bit slow when processing high-resolution videos or larger projects. Additionally, some advanced features may be challenging to find in the user interface, so users may need to do additional research to discover all the tool's capabilities. Finally, Filmora's pricing model can be a bit confusing, as there are different subscription options, some of which may not include all the features.

Filmora Video Editing Software: Create Pro-Level Videos with ease

Reviewed 2 years ago

I love Filmora. It is the perfect fit for me. I make simple yet professional social media videos with it, and for me and most everyday people, that is enough.

Pros

1. Video editing - it allows you to edit videos by adding effects, transitions, and titles. 2. Audio editing - it lets you adjust audio levels and add background music for your video. 3. Motion graphics - this feature allows you to create custom animations with the help of the built-in templates and assets library. 4. 3D animation - this feature enables users to animate their videos by using 3D objects and backgrounds from the library or importing their own 3D models into Filmora's interface.

Cons

I only have one thing I am a bit disappointed about, and that is the price. They have a tier system like many companies for their templates, effects, audio library, etc; the free, standard, and premium options. I use it for free and always have. However, since the premium and standard have some top-shelf stuff, the cost can add up after a while, so I avoid it and do just fine.

Filmora editing software that is easy to understand and use at a reasonable price

Reviewed 2 years ago

I have tried several simple and professional video editing software, I feel that Filmora has more than enough capabilities and fulfills the need for daily video editing with easy-to-use functions, this is one of the reasons why I continue to use it now.

Pros

The number of templates is a plus over editing software, you can save a lot of time working on a project, the application does not require high computer specifications and you can edit a video with satisfactory results.

Cons

I don't want to call it I DON'T LIKE, I bought Filmora on 2017-09-21, I understand that software takes time for research and development while receiving input from users, from time to time I see Filmora has made many improvements to the functions of editing software, for now, one of my needs that have not been met is "perspective view", I hope for future updates this will be taken into consideration.

Best affordable and easy video editing software

Reviewed 3 years ago

Well i started using this in high school for quick video editing which at that time i used for basic needs which really helped me out for a time. i have been considering this since high for an easy inexpensive and quick video editing software even i do use it sometimes in my church Briefly, this software have been so useful to me than many.

Pros

i would recommend this software to any one who want an easy video editor with a high level of video editing features compared to other softwares which not only can be expensive but also not easy to use. A great thing about this software is that not only its inexpensive but has a lot of features, templates ,themes,effects,tools and titles which may be not available in different other softwares for free. This is a unique thing about this software,Producing a high quality video for almost nothing. I love it.

Cons

Well i would like this program to add more and more tools compared to other programs like adobe premier which could add more space to the users unlimited. Filmora should add something about audio quality improvement on making videos and also add some sound effects in it. The new upgraded version is so disappointing because it removed some features of the old one which were necessary like the video speed control. Nothing more to dislike about this

Make professional films from video clips in minutes - Filmora

Reviewed 5 years ago

Filmora is overall a very useful software which I use in my organization for producing videos for events and small functions. I also make aftermovie's from the video footages. It helps me produce videos much more professional and the best part is that I do not need any powerful computer for it. I can do it all from my basic computer system and it does not throw any lag during the video editing. I can also improvise the audio before plugging it into the video which also reduces my dependency on audio editing software.

Pros

Filmora is one of the cheapest software which provides tons of features in its package. It offers multiple professional features like noise reduction, animations and top-notch features like rewinding the videos all in on software. On top of this, the best part is that the software is so lightweight that it can be installed on almost any system and even legacy systems. It does not require any special configurations of powerful systems.

Cons

The Graphical User Interface (GUI) of this software is a bit poor. If we compare it with some best video editing software in the market, Filmora lacks a lot in GUI. The pixelated options often tend the user to take pauses while using the software for prolonged hours. If the user interface of the software is improvised, a lot of people will able to use the software for long hours and produce much more efficiently.

Best for beginners, or for those who want to do a quick and quality job

Reviewed 3 months ago

filmora fulfills my needs for wedding videos, although it is not of very good quality, it is easy to work with and has many functions, effects and export methods.

Pros

- ease of finding and understanding functions - export can be done for various devices and resolutions - proxies can be created, for a more fluid process of high quality clips

Cons

- the quality of the clip after export is not very good - the image noise tool doesn't really give results - the subscription is a bit expensive

Vendor response

Thanks for your love of Filmora to some degree. Regarding the output quality problem you are encountering after exporting, you may try the suggestions below to check if they help: --Adjust the output settings (e.g. resolution, bit rate) to the same as your original video before exporting --Go to "File--> Preferences-->Performance-->GPU Acceleration" disable the GPU option and then restart Filmora...

Cons

Vendor response

Thanks for sharing this great review of our product! We are thrilled that you enjoyed your experience with Filmora. Regarding the conversion speed issue you are encountering, it not only depends on the size, and length of the source video you are editing but also depends on the project settings. What's more, it will be affected by the performance of your computer as well. Based on this, you may try to check if the below steps help: --Lower the output settings, especially the output bit rate --Close other unnecessary software running backstage --Enable the GPU option on the export page Filmora team always values customers' user experience and we'll keep improving the performance and features of this software.

Quick to Learn/Use, Powerful Enough for 99% People, Best Performance-to-Price Ratio

Reviewed a year ago

My editing skills grow with Filmora. I started using it when it was version 7. As they upgrade, my editing skills continue to improve. I have been using Final Cut Pro in the past with my iMac. But as soon as I switched to PC, I need something that I can quickly get going. In many ways, the interface is somewhat similar to Final Cut and I was able to adapt to Filmora quite quickly.

Pros

- Fast editing workflow (simple, yet everything is there)- Very stable editing environment (zero crash, except previous version Filmora X)- Make full use of a graphic card capability (I am using GeForce RTX3060)- Relatively fast rendering (not the fastest in the market, but fast enough)- Many of the advanced functions from Filmora Pro (a higher-tier version of Filmora) is now available in Filmora- The Filmora Effect Store has tons of add-on to choose from (for a reasonable price)

Cons

- Filmora X was one of the most disappointing version. It crashed quite often if the project gets bigger. But it is a thing in the past now. Filmora 11 is very stable and version 12 beta is out. I did not experience such things in version 11.- Rendering speed is fast, but can be faster. I noticed the CPU usage is relatively low during the rendering phase. Maybe more optimizations algorithm can be deployed in the future version.- The colour grading / correction function is relatively primitive. But still good enough for most people.

Filmora Review

Reviewed a year ago

Filmora is solving the problem of time-consuming and complicated video editing. With Filmora, users can quickly and easily create videos from existing media or from scratch using the intuitive drag and drop editing tools, transitions, effects and titles. The user-friendly interface makes it easy for even novice video editors to produce professional-looking results. Benefits realized include faster video creation, improved video quality, and a more efficient and cost-effective way to produce video content.

Pros

The most impactful features are those that are intuitive and easy to use while also providing the most value to the user. Features that help to streamline existing business processes, reduce time spent on manual tasks, and offer insights into data are all important. Integration with existing business processes should also be easy, as this will help to ensure adoption and utilization of the product.

Cons

We feel that the features of the product are adequate but could use some improvement. Specifically, we'd like to see more options for customizing the user interface, more options for data extraction and reporting, and more intuitive workflow tools. In terms of usability, the product can be a bit cumbersome at times, especially when it comes to navigating between different sections of the product. Integration with our existing business processes was more difficult than expected, as there were several discrepancies between our processes and the product's capabilities.

Best Video editing/Creating software for everyone

Reviewed 4 years ago

so overall when compared to the price you pay, this software package is a great deal for everyone.

Pros

This software is one of the most easiest software that a person can use. It basically includes almost all the feature you need to edit a video. The best thing is, you do not need to have any sort of knowledge to use it. you will eventually figure out what to do. the platform is very user friendly. It also features a lot of things like chroma key and other effects that you need to create a professional video. It also come with those ever growing effect pack which make the video look amazing. I have been using filmora since I started my high school and I am still using this to create my videos. I think this is the best deal that you can for for this price. When compared to other video editors, this provides the user a good experience even for beginners.

Cons

There are plenty of things to be improved as well. The designing side is missing from this software. If I need to design or invent some graphic content, I don't think that I can do it within the software itself. and the other thing is, it takes a lot of time when saving a video. and there are some transitions which are too cartoony. I can only add 2 videos tracks. So i think this software will be better with more professional looking effects, transition and also with a designing tools which will make this software package complete.

Reviewed 2 years ago

Overall, I am using this software for the last 2 years and I am very happy. I have also recommended this software to many of my friends and I highly recommend it to others too.

Pros

The best part about this tool is that it is very user-friendly and its UI is great. This is one of the best video editing softwares I've used and it is relatively cheap for professional-grade software. You can add stock footage from its media library and also add background to your green screen videos. You can easily add video effects and also modify them. You can also do advanced editing with a lot...

Anyone edit videos with this software!

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

After I discovered this software, I never looked for another video editor again. Anyone without technical knowledge can use it. You can take audio in and out, cut and insert videos or images and subtitles in various layers of the timeline and it provides libraries of amazing visual effects. Anyone looking for an affordable solution, this is the way to go and it's worth it. Just download the free trial version. There are also several tutorials on youtube that teach you how easy it is to work with it.

Cons

I've been using this software for a while and so far I haven't had any negative experience or anything I say that might make it difficult to use. I think it's an excellent product even compared to other premium editors on the market.

Filmora is the "cheap" version of the most advanced video editing software

Reviewed 3 years ago

I basically went for Filmora because we couldn't afford to change the computer and so I'm quite grateful to Filmora for that, although I can't say it's the best video editing software on the market... it does its job! (clearly not for super-professional users.. but I guess no real PRO are considering moving to FIlmora)

Pros

Using Filmora is quite simple and intuitive. We started by testing Filmora9 and then, having determined that it was right for us, we moved on to FilmoraPro. In reality, they are two completely different programs: the Pro is definitely a more complete and complex program to use, so at the beginning, the learning curve was steeper than expected, but in a few hours of testing and following online video trials we managed to master its main functions! What I did like the most is that it doesn't require a super-advanced Pc to run quite well (not perfectly, but good enough): with an old MacBook Air with i7 and 8Gb of RAM Filmora works!

Cons

The main problem we had with Filmora is that it crashes often... but I guess this is also due to the machine (the MacBook Air) not very powerful! And anyway, this problem is common with most video editing software! And another aspect to point out is that it generates an incredibly huge Cache file, so it fills up 200Gb of HD in a few hours of work, especially while exporting... Oh, the last thing: because it needs to be logged in to allow you to export without the "watermark" you'll always need to connect the Pc to the internet before exporting...

Great Video Making and Editor

Reviewed a year ago

I'm not a professional video editor, but this tool is very friendly with the users out of the Marketing knowledge. If you need to create your videos, for any reason (personal or professional) this tool is the easy to use and most user friendly that I found.

Pros

The best part of filmora is the easy use of the tool: you can distribute all the video parts in rows and edit them in parts: audio, add you music, select volume, mix it with real sound, or mute, add sound effects. The video part is the most funny: you can add a lot of effects, transitions, stickers, pictures, add zooms, cut the image, divide it into different parts, add green screen and erase some parts, stop, cut and pause, increase or decrease velocity... you have a lot of fun to apply there.

Cons

The payment part. If you need to add effects or templates, the most part of the newest and funiest are not for free, you can visit the library and realise that the best of these packs are not for free. ANyway, if you are an intensive user, you can add your tool to the subscription version and enjoy all these downoads, because the subscription to this library is not very expensive. And it's renewing in a shor period of time, so every month you can discover more packs.

Vendor response

Thank you for your kind and positive feedback! We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your experience with this software. Our team works hard to ensure that every product we offer meets the highest standards of quality, reliability, and innovation. And yes, Filmora team did their best to be compatible with the effects that belong to Filmstock (marked by a red diamond) in Filmora directly, which means users can have a better chance to try them before subscribing, and users need to subscribe to a monthly plan for them individually. However, there are also many animations, transitions, effects, color adjustments, and so on being provided for free, you may select them to use instead. We hope you'll make more and more colorful videos to record your life with this software!

Powerful Video Editing For Most Levels

Reviewed 3 years ago

I found it to be really good, especially for the price. Able to use and output various resolutions, codecs and formats. Has some mid-range to advanced features. Has more functionality and customisable elements than iMovie or Animoto, but doesn't cost as much anywhere near as much as Premiere Pro or other 'Pro' solutions.

Pros

Relatively easy to learn. Plenty of functionality and features to suit most needs. Delivers Pretty Good Results. Price of a perpetual license was very attractive.

Cons

I found the interface a bit clunky at times. The software crashed a few times unexpectedly. Creating titles and transitions seemed to take longer than necessary and the bundled title templates were limited for my uses.

A Superb video editing software

Reviewed 3 years ago

The overall experience is great, I use Filmora from time to time when I need to render a quick video, and the software has never failed me, it's always possible to make videos in a way I envisioned them.

Pros

Filmora is a really affordable yet professional video editing software. It has a lot of features that can only be found in much more expensive editing software. The UI is really intuitive and easy to grasp. I've had little knowledge of video editing beforehand, but Filmora has made it really easy for me to learn it. Furthermore, it is constantly getting new updates that include more and more features, which is great. There is a huge variety of music and special effect to choose from, with them you can easily create great videos.

Cons

For some reason the software tends to log me out from time to time, it can get annoying when I'm done with editing a video and upon clicking the button to render it I get a message that I cannot render it since I don't have the premium version (I do, I just have to login back). Moreover, sometimes it might get difficult to grab exactly what you want on the editing timeline, and it can get really annoying.

Simple but Powerful Editing Software

Reviewed 5 months ago

Filmora is one of, if not THE best video editing tool I've ever used. It's got a lot of the same capabilities of powerhorses like Adobe Premiere, but in a MUCH easier-to-use package. It's also WAY more affordable than Premiere. I recommend Filmora to everyone I talk to about video editing!

Pros

Filmora is very powerful--has a lot of capabilities--but it's designed in such a way that (unlike Adobe Premiere) it feels very simple and easy to use. It continues to get more powerful with each version--the latest one has some great, helpful AI features, like a background removal, making it insanely easy to create some cool effects without even requiring a green screen. Also, I LOVE Filmora's youtube channel....they have o many great tutorials that show you step-by-step how to create some awesome effects, and they make it SO easy!

Cons

The only downsides I have for Filmora are: 1. Sometimes the short videos or GIFs I make are too large to upload to social media. I don't know why, since they're always very short and simple, and I believe I'm using the lower settings to export. 2. So many good things are hidden behind a paywall. I already purchased the software--it feels unfair to also expect me to pay a monthly fee just to have access to transitions and other components.

Good Software for the Price

Reviewed 5 years ago

On the overall Filmora is excellent. It's fairly fast, easy to learn, and offers enough advanced features to keep you content for a years. With each video I make I usually find a new tool or a new way to use the tools I'm already familiar with. It's a bargain.

Pros

Filmora isn't super expensive, but it is a full fledged film making software suite suitable for amateur and professional filmmakers. You can adjust the footage in most any way you want, use whatever transitions that please you (but you use them sparingly and tastefully, unless you are making a home movie), and can work with all the normal filetypes (import and export them). For the vast majority of users Filmora is more than good enough.

Cons

There was a period where the software was unstable, but that seems to be the case with most film editors I've run on my less than stellar hardware.

Best software for video editing for the price

Reviewed 5 years ago

I have a new editor in my team and he didn't know this software the first day and that first day he did a 10 hours work , in like 2 to three hours. This software is so intuitive and simple to use.

Pros

Elegant, simple and effective interface for a video editing software. The best feature is the price. The second best feature is the easy way to use all the features.

Cons

Watermark on the free version. But it's a must on a software as good as this one. But other than that there’s no much that I can mention regards to the least I like.

Creative Alliance Review

Reviewed 10 months ago

All in all Filmora is convenient to use and even a new user can get the idea of it in no time so kudos to the team for such simplification.

Pros

Most useful feature in Filmora are the effects and transitions. We also like the collection of free music that we can use in any videos. The new updated version of Filmora has improved a lot and we find it is the simplest and most easiest video editing software out there in the market which has all the required features.

Cons

Mostly the pricing is the major issue because everything Filmora provides in a free trial version, much more can ben done in alternative softwares which are free in the market.

Vendor response

Thanks for your love of the effects and transitions built-in Filmora, and we are thrilled to hear that Filmora helps you edit videos in a simple and creative way. Regarding the price, we'd like to say we are always doing our best to improve it and have added many new features to Filmora, such as Motion Tracking, Animation Keyframing, Curve speed, etc. These features can give users a better and happier experience, and we believe that our service and product offer more value for your money. :) What's more, we are always providing a free trial version for new users to experience it first, just there would be a watermark on the exported videos.

Making great videos is a breeze with Filmora

Reviewed 2 years ago

I have been using this product to improve my family home videos. I can make them much more fun to watch just by adding themes, titles and transitions. It is also very easy to clean up and edit out bad video scenes. I am planning on buying a new PC just so I can use the newer version of this product.

Pros

Ease of use. I watched a few videos on how to use and picked it up without issue. The interface is fantastic. Tons of options and the ability to add more content, transitions and titles.

Cons

Recent large improvements ro the software has rendered it useless to me. I had to back track the versions because my pc just wouldn’t run the new versions correctly. Not a lot of included transitions, titles and themes are included. There is a subscription service that has much much more, but it is expensive.
