Does not save in mov format

I like the program, but it won’t let me save my .mov file that I import into the program in .mov format. I tried Exporting and Save As, but there is no option to save as .mov, or save or export as .mov. So with that said I have to say the program is useless to me. I am using OS X El Capitan on my Mac

Developer Response ,

Hi, if you want to save in .mov format, go to Menu, click Export… and select MOV format from options menu.

It clearly says "MORE THAN 80 FILTERS, FROM BASIC TO ADVANCED." There are only 26. This is such a misleading description. I've never been this angry after purchasing an app. Will need to figure out how to file a complaint.
