    In these Filmora video editing tutorials the goal is to explore all the video editing tools in Wondershare Filmora so that you can start editing videos as soon as possible in Filmora. These video editing lessons are simple and 'to-the-point', and I try and avoid going over unnecessary details and overloading you with information about video editing.

    Practice Video Editing as You Learn

    I highly recommend visiting the Wondershare Filmora website and downloading the video editor (for Windows or Mac) for free. Shoot some video 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 video editing effects available as well to get started with video editing in Filmora. And then as I teach you how to use the video editing tools and effects, try and experiment with these video editing tools in Filmora yourself using your own footage. Learn and experiment in Filmora as you go.

    If you have any questions about these video editing lessons, just send me a message and I'll be happy to try and help with any Filmora questions that you have.

    Happy video editing!
