FIlmora has long absorbed the equivalent of iMovie on PC, namely entry-level editing software, and has gradually come to absorb functions worthy of great professional software.
When you think of professional video editing, three applications immediately come to mind:
- Final Cut Pro
- Adobe Premiere
- DaVinci Resolve
These three programs contain undeniably advanced functionality but at the same time, their approach is challenging and usually requires at least two weeks of training.
At the other end of the spectrum we have iMovie, the software designed by Apple and usually offered as standard with iMacs. Not having breathtaking abilities, he is unanimously praised for the simplicity of his technique. Those who have tasted iMovie on Mac have naturally looked for a PC counterpart. And since 2015, a certain program has appeared in general: Filmora from Wondershare. Its ease of use was comparable to iMovie and made it a suitable choice for beginners. The application is gradually attracting more than 100 million users.
Just here: Across releases, Filmora has continued to welcome more and more cutting-edge features. Thus, the latest version of Filmora 12 offers a wide range of services, often worthy of the three main programs mentioned above. Icing on the cake: Filmora 12 opens up to AI…

What are the new features in Filmora 12?
custom face masks
People familiar with Photoshop are familiar with the “clipping” function: we put points on the edges of an object or character, thus defining a border around them. In Filmora 12 as in Photoshop, you can then remove the background and replace it with another. However, under this editing software, the AI is on time. If the character moves his arms or legs, he will still stand out from the background.
Cut by artificial intelligence
Another way to isolate an element in a video is to denote the subject with a brush. The AI will then complete the selection automatically. Again, all that remains is to include another decor – which could be an animated video. Thus we get a capability that would normally require photographing a person in front of a green screen.
Automatically adjust the music sequence
You appreciate a particular musical sequence, but unfortunately, it’s shorter than the one you’re working on? Copy or lengthen the audio clip, and it will intelligently adapt to the length of the video clip – for example, without you feeling a drop in volume at the point where you copied/pasted the music.
ChatGPT to the rescue
Filmora 12 integrates artificial intelligence into many services. Thus, we can turn on background noise suppression or sound enhancement. but that is not all. Filmora wants to be compatible with what’s called AIGC – Artificial Intelligence Generated Content – which refers to content generated by AI algorithms, whether it’s text from ChatGPT or images generated with the software. Help from MidJourney. For beginners in editing, the “Snapshot” mode offers the possibility to create a clip from the photos, videos and music you have uploaded, based on one of the 115 pre-selected templates. You can also ask questions on Filmora’s ChatGPT: the creator will be able to find ideas or get a script for a video On Youtube or address. We just have an overview of the functions of the AI: it is also possible to read a text with an artificial voice or have an intelligent transcription of a video, in order to provide subtitles on Youtube.
Extensive library of audio and video effects and sequences
Filmora provides creators with a huge library of no less than 500,000 audio or video sequences, not to mention effects.
Filmora 12 test
In general, what is remarkable about this new version of Filmora is that a large number of effects of the main programs in this field are available in Filmora 12 and sometimes with ease of use.
As usual, the software is available for free in a limited edition on PC, Mac, iPhone and Android environments. Note that Wondershare offers a free 1GB of secure cloud storage for its work and the ability to edit in group mode.
