Overview

Wondershare Filmora is a video editor that provides many useful ways to edit HD content like 1080p or 2160p digital video content.

The software can import HD video content ready for editing. The software is especially useful for YouTube channel owners who need to take their content complete with the occasional awkward pause, fluffed intro and “ums” and “aahs” and remove them to create a perfect-looking performance before uploading it.

Have a bunch of travel or expo photos that you wish to turn into a live video with some interesting animation effects? Then look no further as Wondershare Filmore does more than the video editing; it can handle photos and make them more interactive for video-addicted viewers.

With video editing there are more than 300 video effects to create seamless transitions between one take and the next to help make awkward cuts look perfect via a video effect. Add a voiceover to explain details not included in conversation. A longer running audio track can also be added, so digital films can include a commentary track from the creators and actors too.
