Course Creation Tools Filmora Video Editing Tool

Filmora Video Editing Tool

Filmora is a simple to use video editor for Windows and Mac users.


Who Filmora is For:

The ideal Filmora user is someone who is creating live action video training or live action marketing videos and needs software to edit those videos.

Skill Level:

This tool is easy to use, even if you’ve never edited video before.


You’ll install Filmora onto your computer in order to start using it. Both Windows and Mac machines are supported.

Special Features:

Filmora will allow you to add custom titles, custom effects and elements, transitions, and more. It also offers an audio equalizer and background noise removal. You can use up to 100 layers of media.


Filmora is strictly a video editing tool. You cannot use it to record screen capture. If you’re recording a live action video, then Filmora will allow you to edit your video and add in some effects like titles and transitions, but it’s not an all-in-one tool.
