Video Editing with Filmora

In these series of lessons, you will learn how to create great looking videos that you can upload to YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, Vimeo etc using this easy-to-use video editor from Filmora. It's a great video editor to start with if you are new to producing videos and it will allow you to create videos simply and very quickly. There are some really great effects available, and it may be an easy video editor to get started with, but you will still be able to create really dynamic looking videos.

Learning Goals

In these video lessons the goal is to present the video editing tools in Filmora so that you can start creating great videos as soon as possible. These lessons are simple and 'to-the-point', and I try and avoid going over unnecessary details and overloading you with information. This is just a simple 'no frills' demonstration of how to use the tools in Filmora

Using the Video Editing Tools

You will learn how to:

  • Open a new project with the correct aspect ratio
  • Import your video footage to your project (and find royalty free footage) 
  • I will explain how to use the timeline and different tracks/layers
  • How to edit and organize your footage in the timeline
  • How to make edits within each video/music/text track
  • How to edit the contrast, brightness, saturation and tint in your videos, and how to use 3d LUTs. 
  • How to use color tuning presets to improve the color and look of your videos easily
  • How to crop, pan & zoom. How to freeze frame
  • How to add music to your project (and how to find royalty free music to use)
  • How to adjust the sound levels in your video and music tracks
  • How to use 'fade-in' and 'fade-out' to smoothen out the sound in your video
  • How to record a voice over
  • How to record your PC screen (and record the system sound and microphone at the same time)
  • How to add text effects and openers to your project
  • How to pixelate faces (blur people's faces)
  • How to speed up and slow down videos
  • How to use the equalizer to improve the sound of your video and music tracks
  • How to remove background noise

Practice as You Learn

I highly recommend visiting the Filmora website (https://filmora.wondershare.com) and downloading the video editor (for Windows or Mac) for free. Shoot some footage using your phone or camera or download some royalty free footage (I show you how to do this in the course). There are some free effects available as well to get started with. And then as I teach you how to use the video editing tools and effects, try and experiment with the tools yourself using your own footage. Learn and experiment as you go.

If you have any questions about the lessons, just send me a message in the 'Discussion' section and I'll be happy to try and help.

Thanks for taking this class!

This is a great class for beginners with no experience in editing. It's well structurized and covers all the necessary features you'll need to make a project. However, even with a decent editing background, I found a few great tips I could use. Thank you! :)
WOW! Even though I've been using Filmora for a while now, this class was very helpful! I learned quite a few tips & tricks
