Ratings and Reviews
Pretty good editing software
While the software can take some time to get used to, it is excellent in what it can provide you with. From pre-made effects and a plethora of style choices, it works well for anyone starting out as a video editor. With this app, there are also the cons that go with it such as it being a bit difficult to understand where some tools are located. Such example of this is when I noticed whenever I deleted a piece of footage, audio, images, etc. the entire timeline would shift delete and ruin the timing of some key frames put in place. The only way to fix the problem was to find a tutorial online that simply pointed out that it was a toggled on feature that could be turned off. Overall, my experience has been mostly positive as for the only editing software that I paid full price for, it was a bargain for what it provides, and its simplicity in making video editing.

Great software for beginners and intermediate users
In a vacuum, this is really good software, both on Windows and Mac. I tried using more "professional" tools like Final Cut Pro, but it took me much more time to achieve the same results I could get in Filmora. The user interface is really intuitive and everything works well.
The only thing that bothers me about Filmora is the "blogspam" style of marketing they use online, which distracts from how great their product really is. It makes you think you're getting into a scam, rather than the extremely awesome software it is. You google tutorials for almost any other video editor, you get a Filmora blog post - shows you they are sinking tons of resources into SEO.
I am using Filmora in spite of their marketing practices, their GPL violations, et cetera, because I really like their product. It works well, even though it is not yet optimized for M1, and I do have occasional performance problems.

A Very Decent Video Editing Software
I bought Filmora X a few months ago and have been pretty satisfied with my purchase. It is a very competent video editing program that is easy enough to use but still offers some prosumer level features at a reasonable price. With that said though, it's not perfect. If your work requires being able to keyframe anything and everything, this program will fall short in that department. Also, there isn't an easy way to import effects/transitions that aren't already built into the program itself or available through the Wondershare Filmstock library. For most people though, this video editing program will get the job done.
