One of the best apps for the task at hand is Wondershare Filmora 11, a fresh new smart software that takes video editing to a new level of artistry even for the most inexperienced users.

In this article, we will show you all its best features and explain how to use them to edit your video with excellent results.

What are the most important features of Wondershare Filmora 11?

1. Speed Ramping

Do you know that cool effect to slow down or speed up certain frames in a video? It’s called speed ramping, and with Filmora 11 you can apply it with just a few clicks.

The app offers six presets for the speed ramping effect, including Montage, Hero Moment, Bullet Time, Jumper, Flash In, which will definitely add a wow cinematic moment to your video.

After you place the video in the timeline, just select the time icon in the toolbar and select the Speed Ramping feature.

You will gain access to all the mentioned effects and the tool is can also maintain the audio pitch throughout the effect and that’s very important when you change the video speed.

Of course, those are only the presets effects, you’re free to customize your own time speed ramp settings exactly as you want it.

2. Masking

Do you want to hide some parts of the video or highlight some important ones? Use Filmora 11’s masking feature or the many overlays available.

Choose shapes like rectangles, triangles, hearts, and more to cover the video objects you don’t want in the video.

Of course, you can also import a shape you like more, including a logo if you so desire. Additionally, moving the mask around or adjusting its size is a piece of cake.

But if you really want to surprise your audience, use the blend function to combine some clips together and adjust the settings like transparency color values and brightness.

3. Audio Beat Sync

Filmora 11 features what they call the first Auto Montage Maker, a smart tool that automatically matches the footage with music clips, analyzes beat points to add video effects or switch the view.

Also, it quickly identifies the bad parts of the footage, such as too dark, overexposure or jitter, and automatically deletes them to quickly get a video matched music.

4. Effects & FX Plug-ins

We left the best for last because thanks to a new deal with Boris and NewBlue will allow you to access all their add-on video effects such as 3D title, and motion blur to your videos in Filmora11.

So, there are more than 200 new professional effects from the two developers and there’s also a demo for each of them so you can see exactly how they will influence your creation.
