List of Features:

The App allows users to edit and export ultra-high definition videos at resolutions of up to 4K.

  1. Easy option to remove unwanted background noise. You can also reverse your clips and play them backwards.
  2. Social import feature which allows users to import photos and clips directly from Facebook or other social media platforms. You can also import, edit and export .GIF files.
  3. Speed control feature with time lapse support. You can make your clips play in slow motion or up to 10 times faster.
  4. You can switch through your audio and video tracks and precisely edit them one frame at a time.
  5. You can adjust the colour tone of your video clips, dynamic range and adjust the white balance of your clips. You can also add Pan and Zoom movements to your clips and many more transition effects.
  6. The Audio mixture feature allows you to adjust audio of each individual track in your timeline. You can also detach audio from your video edit clip to separately edit it. It also has an inbuilt equalizer to fine-tune your audio tracks.
  7. It has an in-built screen recorder which will allow you to record the screen in your computer or mobile device. This feature can be helpful to create any education videos or demos.
  8. The Picture in Picture feature is a very cool technique to layer multiple video clips and create amazing effects.
  9. You can use the Green screen feature and create special effects using the Chroma Keys. You can also use the split screen to move two or more clips simultaneously.
  10. The text editing feature allows you to edit the colour, font and size of your text and also add animation effects to your titles and text.
  11. The video stabilization features helps to remove any shakes or distortions caused during video recording. You can also select from wide range of colour grading presets available inside the app.

Limitations:

  1. Some effects are not available with respect to text which could have been better. For example, there are no options to make the text move from right to left and to create shapes along with animation. Also you can’t make the shapes move while your video is running.
  2. Also there are no advanced options like adding 3D objects and custom animation to your video clips.  There is no 360 degree video editing feature available in this software.

Verdict:

Filmora is amazing video editing software which is suitable for novice users and amateurs. But it lacks some advanced features like 360 degree video editing and custom animations which will be required by professionals. There are plenty of cool effects available in Filmora’s Effect store and they keep adding more effects every month. It has all the essential tools and any beginner can learn to use it easily.
