Filmora for Mac is a user-friendly video editing production application loaded with a host of special features that allow you to easily put together your video clips, text, and music. Although it lacks the polish of Apple’s iMovie software, Filmora Video Editor for Mac can still be regarded as a versatile replacement for the classic iMovie application. For the most part, the program is just as intuitive and easy to use as early versions of iMovie, even if it does not really match Apple’s skill at producing a more refined software. Everything in Filmora is simple and straightforward. With its Storyboard view, users can easily drop imported media into the filmstrip image wells below before adding any necessary transitions or other basic flourishes to quickly and easily assemble a video. You can also double-click a clip to bring up an inspector panel where an assortment of picture or sound adjustments can be made, including contrast, hue, brightness, saturation, or rotation.
With over 300 effects at your disposal, you can add the Hollywood touch and set the right mood with your home movie with the beautiful audio and visual effects available.
Designed and developed by WonderShare, Filmora for Mac has quite successfully managed to strike a balance between maintaining simplicity while providing more than enough tools and features that the average person would actually use to produce a high-quality video at the same time. It is easy to install and set up and comes with a clean user interface and modern tools that do not clutter the screen. When you launch Filmora, each time, you will be taken to a simple splash screen that allows you to make a few quick choices as to what you want to do exactly and to set the program to suit your needs for that particular project. As a user, you can select the aspect ratio of the project you want to make based on the aspect ratio of the video you will be working with. Most modern devices will be 16:9.
Despite its simplicity, Filmora for Mac comes with over 300 special effects, objects, overlays, sound effects, music tracks and transitions for your usage. The latest version of the program comes with an entirely new system for adding transitions that do not change the duration of the two clips you are joining. Although this is a little bit technical, it helps to ensure that your audio sync and the overall length of your project are not altered while adding or removing transitions. Adding transitions involves a simple drag and drop process to add things to the timeline which allows the timeline to stay together even when you remove or add something automatically. The program has a dedicated Pan and Zoom feature for adding and customizing animations for still images as well as being able to customize and animate text. Filmora for Mac also comes with an Easy Mode or Full Feature Mode that launches the program into a semi-automatic mode which makes use of style templates that you add your video, images, and audio to. The Full Feature Mode launches into the full editing program. Filmora for Mac offers full support for the likes of FLV, AVI, MKV, and WMV for both import and export, in addition to more traditional MOV or MP4 files, making it a top choice for anybody in need of an easy or simple video editing software.
