How to create stunning video using Filmora 12

The creator economy is here, and video creation is becoming a critical skill. But video editing is not simple, and the fact that there are paying jobs for that skill is reason enough to understand.

So, what are we, regular people, supposed to do when we want to edit a video with stunning results?

Truth be told, there are a lot of video editing software on the market that get the job done, and just a few of them can help us achieve that in minutes without complicated instructions.

One of the best apps for the task at hand is Wondershare Filmora 12, 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 best features of Wondershare Filmora 12?

1. Backup & sync your assets

Filmora 12 stepped up in the asset management department. When you finish your creation, you can upload it to your social media accounts, like with many other editors.

However, with Filmora 12, you may also store it on your cloud accounts, and more importantly, you will have your own storage space: Filmora Workspace.

This way, all your projects will be available anywhere you start your Filmora app, whether it’s on your mobile, PC, or online.

2. Available on any platform

Do you enjoy editing your videos on your Android or iOS mobile right after you’ve shot a clip? You can do that with Filmora 12 because it has a dedicated app.

Then, you can continue the work on your Windows or Mac laptop or PC or you may just use your tablet because you enjoy dragging and dropping elements with your fingers.

And thanks to your own Filmora Workspace everything will be updated to the latest version whatever device you use.

3. Enhanced keyframe

Although with Filmora 12, you can create an astonishing video in just a couple of minutes, you can also go a lot further with the editing.

And that’s because Filmora 12 comes with a very complex keyframe that you can use to make a lot of advanced settings.

On the keyframe, you will find a lot of useful adjustments, such as filters and color correction, in addition to position, rotation, and scale.

Filmora 12’s interface is complex yet very friendly and intuitive, so anyone will be able to use it regardless of their video editing skills.

4. Create a mask for any object with Draw Mask

Video masking is a tool usually found in advanced video editors to remove objects from frames or highlight them.

Filmora 12 not only has that option, but it’s extremely easy to use. You may simply place shapes around the objects or use the pen tool to create the shape around them with pinpoint accuracy.

You can even draw curve segments with Bezier paths, just like in professional editing tools.

After you draw the mask, you may extend it, blur the object inside, or highlight it by inverting the mask.
