If you find video editing difficult as a casual and inexperienced user, Wondershare Filmora 8 might be the best software for you.


Wondershare Filmora 8 is ensured to give quality and high-definition video products even though its interface and production process look very user-friendly. It allows users to put up to a hundred videos and audio tracks in their workspace which they can apply to the video through a timeline. This allows easier navigation through the clip.

Users are allowed to easily cut and control parts of clips by clicking them. They can also speed up, slow down, and do a lot more with each clip. Even though it may sound easy to do, other video editing software actually do all these in a more complex manner compared to Filmora.


User interface is probably the first thing to drive those that are inexperienced in video editing away from the art. This is because it is usually filled with a lot of buttons and functions instantly with each of them taking up to five minutes to learn individually.

With Filmora 8, users are guaranteed a smooth and casual experience when editing, with all the tools you would expect available within a whim for you.

This does, however, come with obvious cons like the lack of overall complicated video editing tools and lesser control for features. Users of Filmora 8 must be sure to expect only simple editing instead of overly-complicated one.

Product exporting

Another standout feature for Filmora 8 is its easy export feature. After producing a video, you are given the option to export it to your PC, your phone, and social media channel. You can also choose to burn it on a DVD.

Filled with features

Some of the best features that are easily used can be seen in Filmora 8. One of these is their transitions which are modern and trendy. Their video filters are also good. They are easy to put on videos and will apply perfectly to almost any clip.  

It also has a reliable color correction tool. Along with this is the chroma-key function which allows you to change video in green screen style. Other tools that are helpful include adding text, applying filters, applying transition, cutting, speeding and slowing, and other functions expected in a video editing software.

However, advanced features like closed captions and the ability to add menus on DVDs are not present in the application.


In the end, Wondershare Filmora 8 is best used by those that have basic knowledge in video editing and would like to do it casually. It has almost all features expected along with other unexpected ones like video stabilizers and chroma-key. It is also best used for videos with simple transitions and filters.

Overall, it is a good buy for those that want to have a video editing software that is simple and easy to use.
