"Filmora has some great features"

What do you like best?

I can make fabulous titles and ending credit slides. Plus, they have great tutorials.

What do you dislike?

It's not really intuitive how to use it, and there are limited ways to change color on the elements already in Filmora.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Filmora doesn't do all the things that some other more extensive (and expensive) programs do, but they provide some great effects you can use with another program like Camtasia. It is not really intuitive to learn, but the tutorials are great. They are making more and more YouTube tutorials on their product. In fact, they have a playlist you can binge watch that is good. You can buy additional effects in their store and they often have sales. I don't like that you can't have any empty space on the timeline. So I can't move clips out of the way and around like I would in Camtasia. Also, some of the features - like background clips, have limited availability to change the colors to suit my needs. However, I've made some very cool intros and outros with Filmora. I would probably use it more if I dedicated some hours to learning it, but usually when I'm ready to use it, I just need something fast and good looking. It can do some slick things like transitions, light leaks, title appears, and more. I have purchased quite a few additional packages to add on to my base Filmora.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm creating promo videos for my business and I need some good effects.

"the best video editor"

What do you like best?

I really love this video editor, with the power to create short films adding pre-established animations, music, text and many other things, it is a very well structured and structured program with simple and quality functions, the best of all is that the program is very easy to use, we can edit a video and create another in twenty minutes and with an excellent professional finish that would seem that we are experts in the area when we really are not.

What do you dislike?

I think that beyond all those pre-established functions should be left to be added manually by the user some functions as texts, ie some typography that I as a designer and I want to add to my video, in this aspect the program limits you a lot and it does not let you explode all your imagination

Recommendations to others considering the product

my best advice is that they acquire the product, they will not regret it and they will become experts in maximum three days, it is a program with a lot and in turn with little, many functions and little effort to learn it to use, the program will help you and will be A very good ally in your work as a designer.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

meets the requirements for us to do projects that we can use in our digital portfolio and later on we can sell as a product, whether videos, shorts, programs or others, the program allows you to easily and quickly to create all these things no problem.

What Video Editing solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"More simple, amatuer movie editor"

What do you like best?

Filmora offers a simplicity people who arent familiar with all the advanced techniques and only want to quickly edit video but dont want to be burdened with complicated features competitors like Adobe Premier and Apple's Final Cut Pro.

The interface is pretty simple and offers the basics while staying inline with industry standards regarding the layout of the application which will make the move to more advanced products easier.

What do you dislike?

Depending on what you want done, this really is meant for the amateur who just wants to edit and go. So don't expect this software to look like Casey Neistat's videos using this tool. You will want to move up to more professional suites.

The dark interface it starts you out on is ok but a tad darker than I'd like. The light interface is ok but the flat style of the UI brings along other issues like no depth in the controls.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I'd suggest this software if you are just starting out with a youtube channel and want to immerse yourself into the world of video editing.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Easily edit movies without shelling out a bunch of money. Good to get started and when you develop the skills you need, you can graduate past this software.

It has a nice tutorial that will grant the user a quick lesson on the terms and what the tool does.

"Makes Marketing SO easy!!!"

What do you like best?

I love the ease of use in both creating and editing video and photo footage. Instead of waiting weeks to get a new marketing video out, we can have it filmed, edited, and published all in one day!

What do you dislike?

The time it takes to download the stock content. The content is worth waiting for, but it can take some time, especially the music.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're looking to create any kind of quality video for your business, look no further!

Filmora offers creative freedom while helping you to maintain professional quality videos to offer to your customers. Everything from the stock images, music, and fonts offered are all professional quality.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Before we used to have to hire outside of our business to have tutorials, commercials, and other videos made for our marketing plan. Now we can do everything completely in house while still maintaining the high quality videos our customers are used to.

"Simple and perfect"

What do you like best?

What I like most about this program is that it is very simple and easy to use but also unlike other simple programs, this is very good and the work done here is of very good quality, which makes the program very practical to mix quality easily, making this video editor one of the first options when looking for a video editor.

What do you dislike?

Its greatest strength is also its greatest weakness, since being so simple, the program lacks some more advanced functions to perform higher-level editions, that is, it needs to integrate new editing tools into the program.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is not a difficult program, on the contrary, it is very easy to use, so if what you need or are looking for is a video editor, please try Filmora, it is ideal and very practical, I assure you that you will be satisfied with the work what can be done using this program

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

If in my work one of the projects is about video, this is without a doubt one of the first options to use, the Filmora video editor, has simple and very good functions to complete easy tasks and perform them in the simplest way and with the appropriate quality

"Easy and very good program"

What do you like best?

It is a program that has everything, ease of use, good quality, excellent tools, simple functions and professional level finishes, I love it, it is really a very practical program when it comes to editing videos, it has everything you need to position it as one of the best, very simple and at the same time very professional

What do you dislike?

from my point of view, I think they should add more features that make much more eye-catching and improve the videos that we created through Filmora or the videos that we edit here, the program fulfills many things but even so I think they should study to improve it and add things more current and new

Recommendations to others considering the product

Anyone who wants to use it for the first time I recommend you do it, dare to use this program without any knowledge, you will see that it is very easy to use and you will learn very fast to work with this program

"excellent ally"

What do you like best?

The program is one of the best video editors that can exist to start learning, as it is easy to use for new users, it is also a strong program for experienced people, it has what it takes to carry out professional quality projects and create very eye-catching videos and well done.

What do you dislike?

I think that the program can be subject to modifications where they integrate more tools to make the editing of the videos, it is necessary to have some improvements for more effects, sound mix, among other things that could make the program improve much more

Recommendations to others considering the product

Despite being a program used by graphic design professionals, do not stop and stop using it, the program is also aimed at amateurs of the edition, it is very easy to use and it is very easy to edit and create videos using this tool, their functions are very useful and will make you do a very good job

is a program that allows editing and creating videos, adding texts, subtitles, images and even another video, within the same project, which is very useful for us graphic designers, in each of our works in a very complete

What do you dislike?

the free version does not allow you to keep the work done without problems, since doing so leaves you with a watermark with the name of the application, while with the paid version this does not happen

"The perfect program for videos"

What do you like best?

is the perfect program to start editing videos, I remember using it for the first time in my first semester of graphic design and from there I loved it, it has what it takes to edit videos and make them look high level, the works done with this program will always have a 10/10, it is a simple and very simple to use program

What do you dislike?

The program has some problems that in my case I am in the middle of a project and it stops working suddenly or sometimes it just closes the window and I lose the process that I do, it is the only negative thing that I see the program because really at the level of use and tools is perfect

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you can acquire this program, do it, it is not at all complex or difficult, on the contrary since you execute it and start using it you will become addicted to it and start editing videos, it is very, very simple what makes us focus on doing videos from the first moment.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

He really helped me solve problems during my university student period, where every task that was based on creating a video was solved thanks to Filmora, it was one of my biggest allies since being so easy to use and with very useful tools, I I was able to make and edit the videos they asked for and I always got a good score thanks to this program

"simple but excellent"

What do you like best?

It is for me the editor of videos with the necessary tools and the most appropriate to work, this program combines functions such as adding text, home, credits, animation, music, photos and videos to create the best video presentations that a program can offer, is undoubtedly a quality program suitable for simple video tasks but with a professional touch

What do you dislike?

the program only lets you export images, videos and music but it does not allow you to export to the program gallery functions like the animation of incio, that is to say how the title of the video we are creating will come out, I think you should add this to give more freedom to the users of how their video will be animated according to what we want

Recommendations to others considering the product

think of this program as your first choice when making or editing a video, it is a very simple but also very complete program that can do all the work when we need to make video projects, it has tools that will also make our work something more striking and of much quality

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In the designer's labor market, videos are very much in demand, that's when Filmora takes action, this program is the one necessary to fulfill all the requirements when making a video, it has all the necessary elements for us to do a high quality and appropriate work to satisfy our customers

"its a easy program"

What do you like best?

I love how easy it is to use this program, all its functions are very simple and make the video loche as it is, really a very complete and very good program to edit and create new videos made by users of the program

What do you dislike?

I feel that in spite of being a very good program, it needs something more, more functions, especially in the animation part, it has several animations very similar to each other and I think they should add new and more modern

Recommendations to others considering the product

excellent edition tool and video creation, is the right program to start doing high quality and very good works, with very creative and eye-catching elements that will make the video just great

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

is a program that takes users to the creation of videos which is extremely useful for those of us who are specialized editors in the area of audiovisual arts, it allows us to easily use this platform as an ally in the day-to-day work of the designer

"easy to use and very good "

What do you like best?

all its functions are really good, it is an essential program for users who are starting in the world of video editing, it has a tool useful enough to perform high quality and good jobs

What do you dislike?

limits the user to use only their predetermined functions of animation, text, music, among others, should have an option or tool for users to create their own animations for the videos they make

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use all the possible tools the first time you work with the program so that you discover all the functions and so when you make a project you can make use of everything that Filmora has to give

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

with this program I was able to launch as a brand in the labor market through videos that promoted me and my skills as a graphic designer, it is really very helpful thanks to its tools that allow high quality and very professional videos

"Easy to use and navigate, Great quality app"

What do you like best?

Filmora is so easy to use! I've made several videos with the program that have all exceeded 5,000 views on YouTube. The editing tools are creative and easy to use. There are 100s more available for purchase on the website through the application.

What do you dislike?

I wish there was more graphics to use that were free. The transitions are cool but I wish there was more that didn't cost money. They kind of get you with the low price by getting you to buy more add ons for the app. But at least this keeps the cost down and allows to to purchase only what you intend on using.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it out!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Filmora allows us to edit our videos and make them look better for more views. Before we were just shooting and uploading with no edits at all and it looked very unprofessional. But now we are looking like pros with the videos that come out when we are all finished.

"First Time Using Filmora"

What do you like best?

There are a lot of features. You can add video, audio, text, special effects etc fairly easily once you get the hang of it.

What do you dislike?

That I signed up for the free version to test it out, only to find out after spending 3 hours on my first video that it would have the company watermark prominently displayed throughout my video unless I paid for the $39.99 a year version.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just be aware that while you can try it for free, the watermark will be on everything you produce until you pay to register the software. So don't be surprised by that.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am just starting with it, but will be able to put up videos on youtube to illustrate folds, in-line finishing. It will make it easy to produce better videos than just the ones I have made with my phone.

"Excellent video editing software"

What do you like best?

This video editor have a full set of options and features that are needed for middle - level quality of video editing and it's perfect for all sorts of videos for YOUTUBE, family videos, student works and promotional videos.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes work is becoming tedious, some better sort of favorite actions would be helpful. It is not possible to change aspect ratio during work. Creating final video sometimes take too long. Program settings have near zero options, also as audio options (that are very bad).

Recommendations to others considering the product

Fantastic video editor, not so heavy on PC resources, with plenty of options and excellent control options. Color correction, changing speed (both audio and video separately), real time effects and filters and other features make this solution a winner.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Video editing of all sorts of video material for promotions (mostly YOUTUBE video channel), With this new level of quality we are looking to start even a VIMEO channel.

"Good for free video editing"

What do you like best?

Standard video editing software, slightly better than WMM (more usable) at least to me. I would have gladly kept my registration current, however the cost was not approved by management.

What do you dislike?

No real complaints about the software. Great features, maybe a light theme would be nice too. Looking at the dark interface all the time can get kind of depressing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Nothing particular that new users need to know -- that's the beauty of Filmora. Someone as inexperienced as me in film editing was able to hit the ground running because of the ease of use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Filmora was a fantastic alternative for someone looking for another option besides WMM. The interface is much more user-friendly to me, and with the discount it turned out to be more cost-effective than WMM. It's a relatively detailed and in-depth film editing product, which someone like me who has really no experience in video editing was able to pick up and quickly figure out within minutes of starting the software.

Has loads of effects, very easy to use. Cheap expansions.

Has screen recorder. Easy to import media files. Easy to export media files. Easy controls.

What do you dislike?

Lacks customization. If You take some effect, there is not much You can do with it, just use it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The best pick for home use, quick, reliable, supports many formats, exports many formats. Loads and loads of effects. After watching few free tutorials that You can find on filmora site You can fully use the program. Very easy to import and export videos and media files. This is currently one program that I am using.

"Powerful and okay product"

What do you like best?

Filmora is an easy-to-use tool. The interface is intuïtive and doesn't take much time to understand. There are some broad possibilities for e.g. greenscreen, splitscreen and other function, without the loss of oversight. Also, it runs pretty well on my PC, which is not meant for video-editing (photo-editing at best). Although the program is quite heavy, it runs pretty well on computers it's not meant too. It doest, however, slow down the functionality, but that's because of the specs of my pc.

What do you dislike?

There are many special effects to add, but there are very little options to how you can add them. For example, you can add fire, but not as holding fire in your hand. So the special effects are not very advanced. Also, some functions could work better. It's nice to be able to work with greenscreen, but it can be hard to adjust the lighting or to remove the entire background on a video.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Filmora is pretty great. It's easy and intuïtive in use, so you don't need much experience editing videos. You can start right off. If you want to do more heavy editing, for example with special effect and complicated greenscreen edits, Filmora might not be the right tool for you.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I make videos for several purposes. Marketing, hobbies etc. Usually for informal events such as marriages, but often also for formal events. I've lately created many promotional video during political election campaigns and I use if for vlogging.

"easy and great"

What do you like best?

the program combines ease with quality, it is a very easy program to use, to manage, to experience, a program that at the first moment of beginning to use it, you already know everything you have and what it is for, if we add a finishing professional level we can get as a result something great, something worth acquiring and have it as a work tool

What do you dislike?

should include a broader and free in turn animation system, so that users can import large effects to the program and not only work with those already pre-established, this would give a turn to the program allowing very different jobs each with particular things in instead of similar things.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I highly recommend this program, as I said before it combines many positive factors in its favor which makes it a really useful program when working in a professional manner, it is a real help in many areas.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Many problems of work as a designer are solved through the use of Filmora, since throughout our career we are called for the creation of short films, advertisements and things that we can do without problem using this program that also has easy the tools to finish that kind of work

"a util program"

What do you like best?

What I like most about this program is how easy it is to make a video editing or the creation of a graphic animation in a simple way, it is also a very simple tool and that when you want to use it in a good way you can Become a great ally in work

What do you dislike?

for being such a simple program, it is also a program that lacks many tools of work a little more complex that in the end help us as professionals to create better animations or better effects in the edition of the videos that is made in filmora, I dislike this a little.

Recommendations to others considering the product

no particular recommendation but using the program, the best way to learn to use it is proving and making mistakes, although they will not have much of the second since I guarantee them, it is very easy to use, I do not think they make many mistakes, it is well explained everything in terms of its functions and tools.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Filmora makes it easy to produce nice short videos"

What do you like best?

Filmora provides every editing tools that I require for my task of producing up to 3 minute YouTube videos. It features a multi-track workplace and intuitive user interface that cut my learning curve. Especially, the ready effects and presets really help much.

What do you dislike?

The program sometimes crashes at the first start, then I will need to do a reboot to make it work normally. Also, the program is more suitable to non-professional video editing tasks which mostly use drag and drop.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is one of the best video editors I've ever found on the market. Not only does it successfully qualify my video making needs, but also it is being developed in an appropriate modern way. This program has so much prospects and surely it will be beyond your expectations. Really worth a try.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With Filmora, you don't need to be a designer to create high-quality and beautiful introducing or promotional videos for your company.

"Makes video editing easy"

What do you like best?

I like how I can easily import videos into filmora. I can mute the audio and put my own audio in. I can add captions and different fades into my videos. I have a lot of freedom, but as a inexperienced film editor, it walks me through a lot and helps me achieve what I want. It works well with photos and videos.

What do you dislike?

Some of the more trickier mechanics can be a little more complicated to achieve or unavailable. But usually I can figure a way around it or change how I wanted it to look. I may not be able to manipulate everything, but I can do a lot of neat things to them.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great for small projects and things like video ads. Great for the inexperienced video creator.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were wanting to cut out sections of video and create photo slide shows of recent events from our church members to see. We can easily collect the videos and put them together for a short presentation. Add some music and title and we are done. Works great!

"Easy to use , full featured editor!"

What do you like best?

The things i like about Filmora Wondershare are:-

1) Easy to use , user friendly interface

2)Realtime review editing

3)Easy drag and drop operations

4) freedom to edit text and some really cool predefined templates.

5) Freedom to select any format you want to export your video to!

What do you dislike?

What i dislike about filmora wondershare is that, though there are some good intro and credits templates but they are very less. Also no free templates are available for use. The templates available are very high priced, maybe if they could decrease the price a little.

Also when we export our video , another option of save to drive would be really beneficial!

Eats up a lot of RAM!! (for an i3 processor it might hang a bit, though it should be smooth enough for i5 and above)

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is actually a software for making quick and amazing videos for business, product or for fun!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Filmora for making videos related to events that happen in my society. Also for making videos for products and marketing of a product!

"Wondershare Filmora Video Editor"

What do you like best?

Easy to use, with robust features. Frequent relevant updates. The motion graphics and reasonably priced effects add-ons are high-value and well made. The interface is straightforward but takes a little getting used to if you are coming from other editing software. I love the ratio tool for sizing videos to fit social media parameters. Also, the crop and zoom is a Godsend.

What do you dislike?

Some transitions are not as smooth as in other video editors

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try out the full-featured trial. Pay for watermark removal.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Great for making promotional video shorts with direct uploads to both You Tube and Vimeo plus multiple native format export options.

Filmora is very easy to use with setting ranging from beginner to advance. I have used this program for creating marketing videos that look professional and cristp. The price is affordable and definitely worth every penny.

What do you dislike?

I do not believe I have any major complaints. Ocassionally, it can be slow to load or freeze, but that could be a result of issues with my own computer. Overall, no complaints.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Purchase the official software and get to work right away. Avoid the watermark and create professional videos fast.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The benefits of using the Filmora progam is that you are able to easily create marketing videos or product videos with ease. The up to date software gives you plenty of options to create a professional and fully marketable video.

"Excellent Final Cut Pro alternative for PC users"

What do you like best?

Filmora maintains the intuitive drag-and-drop approach to video editing made popular from iMovie. But its capabilities run far deeper with more advanced features, excellent motion graphics and special effects that come included out-of-the-box.

Far superior approach for mid-level video editing profs than Adobe Premiere

What do you dislike?

Preview rendering with audio syncs could use some fine-tuning, but it wasn't too much an issue.

Recommendations to others considering the product

A great alternative to Adobe Premiere, Final Cut Pro and iMovie at an excellent price. Best value.

"Filmora is inexpensive and so easy to use!"

What do you like best?

All of the features are very intuitive. I love that it is quick and easy.

What do you dislike?

I wish it didn't take so long to export, but that is life if you want a 1080 video.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Filmora does have a couple of limitations, but I think that is fair given its price point. You can currently only overlay 2 videos and 2 layers of audio at any given second. But that works for me most of the time.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

So user friendly, it is easy to use and to figure out how to add or change things. It gives you a great option for the way you want text to appear and move and disappear. There are a lot of ways to get the look and style you want without a lot of fuss. You can also do split screens, simply and easily.

What do you dislike?

No ability to drop out a green screen in the background (it just doesn't handle that kind of detail), this is just a matter of understanding that if you shoot with a green screen you must use another program to pull that green screen away.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I think that if you are just starting to make videos or if you want to simplify your current process and still get great results, try this software! You won't be sorry!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I love using it to add text, much better than Adobe premiere for that, and it really helps get things done quickly, it is faster and easier and the final product is so much better than Movie Maker. It also is inexpensive and gives you a lot of useful styles to add!

"A cheap and fast option"

What do you like best?

It's been a long time since I was a looking for a fast software to edit small clips with. I've been through a lot of software and I was mostly looking for free options. I didn't find anything satisfying enough. Filmora has a beautiful and easy to use interface, not too many options, not too few. The main reason I chose Filmora is because I was looking for a crop option for my clips. And by cropping, I mean cropping the actual frame, like you would crop an image in Photoshop. The brilliance of Filmora is that it's very light on my not-so-new PC, so that's another bonus. I tried using Photoshop for these actions before, but exporting is always a pain, memory wise. I thought SonyVegas is a good option, but there's been quite some struggle with it and I eventually quit using it (especially since Sony sold it to Magix, there are a lot of options now and it's quite confusing) . At my 2 core CPU and 4 GB of ram memory, Filmora doesn't even blink. Also, at $40 per year/PC or $60 per lifetime/ PC, I'd say it's a bargain. I don't use more than 1 PC, and 1 year is more than enough for me for now. After a year, I can see if there are other better options on the market, renew my license if it's worth it and check if there are better updates for Filmora.

What do you dislike?

Even though it's a simple nice little program, there could be some more control over the exports. For example, if I import a clip, edit it and export it as, say, an mp4, those options are enough for me. The thing is that I cannot save a custom profile with those options, and after working on a second clip, I have to customize my export again.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's not a complex software, even though you can chose between an easy mode or a full feature mode. The full feature mode has proven not to be more than I can chew up, and I'm not quite the expert when it comes to video editing. It's simple, intuitive and fast. Check out their website - Wondershare Filmora, and look closely for the features of the software. If you want more control, you can go for Vegas Pro, Adobe Premiere or even Photoshop, but watch it for the price :)

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I solved my issue about cropping videos. I sometimes do self-promotion clips, and my camera isn't a very good one. The room I have the light in, and the camera zoom doesn't allow me to film exactly what I need, so more than once, I had to crop it to the essential. Cropping works beautifully, the export is fast, the quality is fine enough.

"Easy to Use Video Editor"

What do you like best?

This is a no nonsense product with lots of built in features that a novice or experienced user can use. If I need to quickly put together a video with titles and some effects I can do so without too much of a learning curve. It enables you to drag and drop media content and save it to many different formats. The best part of this software is ease of use. I need to get my content out quickly and I am always on a strict deadline. I need solutions that are quick and effective and FIlmora fits that need. My job did not supply me with this software, I purchased it on my own because I needed it to get the job done.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes it crashes, but it's not a big deal as it quickly recovers. It hangs a bit when you are first staring and the video takes a little long to encode.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Save your work often. In the beginning it, when it is loading up, it hangs a bit. It quickly overcomes it, but jut in case I save my work often. I would also save my work in multiple formats. The software makes it breeze to do so although it can take a while for it to happen, but I do believe that all video editors have this problem.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am trying to solve the business problem that I need to edit and produce quality videos quickly.

"Not Easy at First"

What do you like best?

I was grateful for a free video editor to do just minimal edits for videos I post on YouTube. I was happy with the videos I was able to edit and post. It was nothing fancy by any means, but I was happy with the results. It helped me do edits and transitions so my videos are more interesting and not too long.

What do you dislike?

It is not intuitive at all and took some digging to figure out how to use even the basics at first. the "easy" video builder isn't really useful at all because it isn't an editor it just puts some things together in a pre-made video format. I gave up on it for a little while because I just couldn't figure out what to do and had trouble finding any tutorials or help.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I feel like this is most useful for people who want to learn video editing and cannot afford the software as of yet. I'm certain that with knowledge of how all the features work it would be an adequate program, but at some point you will need to upgrade.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It helped me solve my problem of editing YouTube videos with better quality and ease of use than the YouTube editor. Even with it's disadvantages you really cannot beat free as far as cost is concerned and it works well enough for the needs that I currently have.

"Easy Video Editing That Looks Professional"

What do you like best?

I love that Filmora has a database of music you can choose from, and it makes video editing easy.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes using a trackpad can make things complicated when choosing each time stamp to edit.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Easy to use, and a nice database of royalty-free music.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was struggling with putting out regular videos for my group because using a free program like iMovie made the process tedious. But Filmora makes video editing much more streamlined and much less stressful.

"Great option for the price"

What do you like best?

Filmora is very intuitive and easy to use. The user-friendliness should go a long way with a lot of people. The price doesn't hurt either.

What do you dislike?

It seems similar to iMovie/FCPX, which will be fine for many people. I personally don't care for FCPX, however, the price difference between it and Filmora should encourage people to go the Filmora route.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Check out the free trial download and see how the interface fits your style/needs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I've been looking for a video editing solution.

"Fraud business"

What do you like best?

Nothing. There software lacked basic feature which immediately made me decide that I won't be using it.

What do you dislike?

They say they provide money back guarantee but it's all for show. I bought this software and immediately decided that I won't be using it. So, I asked for refund immediately. I was told that I'll receive it in few days but I did not. It has been 2 months and they have stopped replying my tickets. Even the old tickets where I asked for refund has been deleted from their server.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Stay away - this is a suspicious business.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Video editing, but stay away.

What do you like best?

I would like it it Filmora would expect projects but it does not.

Days have been wasted editing projects that Filmora freezes when attempting to export.

Try something stable. The net is littered with complaints about Filmora's inability to handle medium sized files.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Wondershare will not issue a refund. This creates a problem.
