I edit on a Macbook and use Filmora 9. I tried using iMovie, but it felt weird so I stuck with Filmora. I would definitely not recommend it to anyone. There is this bug, to where it literally gets stuck when I try to save my work. So if I have done quite a bit and haven't tried to save, I don't save until I'm completely done with the video.
I know why not take advantage of the auto-save funcitonality. Well I do, and it eventually stops working. No clue why, and I have yet to find a fix online. There is also Filmora 10, which I have, but when I tried using it, it introduced a whole slew of bugs that I reverted back to 9.
I wouldn't recommend this software to anyone. There are a handful of bugs and I don't believe they support Filmora 9 with new upgrades. Also, a lot of the functionality is missing key features that would be easy to implement; like simple tab feature to jump from one text box to another. So these things end up slowing my production speed up.
I won't hate on Filmora entirely. It is the first and only video editing software that I really used and it has helped me improve my editing skills a lot since beginning. I'm probably about a month away from being monitized on YouTube and when I am, my first purchase will be the Adobe Cloud subscription. So I"m looking forward to Premiere!
This is a great topic. I get asked what software I use all the time and my answer is always "Filmora, but don't use it" lol
nice to know TY!
I'm a big fan of free, especially where hobby-use comes in. My choice is OpenShot (www.openshot.org/). It has more features than I'll ever need, but isn't too overwhelming.
