We use it in standard trainings for creators. We also use it for exceptions training where a certain concept is either more difficult for some creators to grasp, or too nascent yet and needs a more focused visual explanation.

Filmora

It handles Nvidia Shadowplay videos with ease where some other editing tools struggle with those video formats. If you want fancy pre-made transition and effects you get a much wider variety with Filmora than with almost all other video editing tools.

Cons

  • Great visual tool that lets you intelligently communicate what you are seeking to explain to your audience. More features I might suggest would be anything that makes it more interactive with the viewer in real-time.
  • For the price , it is a great deal as is.

  • Only 2 Video Tracks
  • Cannot Select and Produce or Export Only Parts of the Timeline
  • Lacking some shortcuts to help navigate and maneuver timeline more efficiently

Alternatives Considered

Camtasia is what we used before, and we still use it for longer videos. But for training we found we needed something powerful yet much simpler to use. Animoto also is great for still shots, images, snippets of content that can be created very quickly without any heavy editing work.

Filmora has a better effects, transition option pack than other services and it is less than half the price of Camtasia. However, it is limited to 2 video tracks only where Avid One which is free allows 4 video tracks. Camtasia has better layered video on top of video features, but Filmora is faster at cutting/trimming video than Camtasia if you want to segment out or slice out portions of videos it can be done in less steps. Often I start working on a video with Filmora and finish it up in Camtasia or Avid One. Filmora effects pack are its biggest selling point and it's awesome that they come out with new ones every month.

Return on Investment

  • Positive as it is so simple to use, and even helps discover where a creative student would benefit far more with a more focused visual.
  • Positive as it is - seriously easy to drop in content and create a video short on any topic, in literally minutes!
