easy video editing for YouTuber and videographer

In the category of video editing software, we have the rarely complete free products (Movie Maker or iMovie) and the very expensive and inaccessible software (Adobe Premiere). Filmora X (10) is exactly between the two: easy to learn, very complete without costing an arm and a leg. Because if the latter is paid, you will have plenty of time to try 100% of the software’s features. The only limitation is that you will have a watermark on your output file (an inscription “Made with Filmora X” on your final video). In short, Filmora X plays the game of transparency. Build your project and see if the software is worth the detour without even taking out your bank card!
