There are plenty of programs available in the market that allows the professionals to Create, Edit, and Render the video. The advanced applications consume a lot of time to master and control it at full capacity. We have been using a wide range of editing software, and it takes plenty of time to learn it. Wondershare has seen a gap in the video editing market and brought Filmora9 for beginners and professionals.

Wondershare Filmora9 is the new edition of advanced video editing software that millions of video editors have been using daily. The program comes with advanced features and enables the newbie’s to make an advanced video in a few minutes. You cannot comprehend the capabilities of Filmora9, and that’s why we have prepared this review for you.
1. PC System Requirements
We consider system requirements a major driving factor for customers because not everyone owns a high-end machine with Core i9 paired with RTX 2080 Ti. 99% of the premium solutions designed for mid-range computers and high-end workstations, and that’s why we are going to cover it first.
We tried Filmora9 on low-end AMD laptops and mid-range Windows gaming PC. The brand mentioned the PC requirements on the official website, and we have listed it below.
Operating System: Windows 7 (64-bit), Windows 8.1 PRO (64-bit), and Windows 10 (64-bit). A 32-bit operating system does not support Filmora9.
CPU: Minimum 4-Core CPU with four threads. Close background running applications during render.
RAM: Minimum 4 GB RAM for 1080p rendering, and you need 8 GB required for 2K and 4K videos.
GPU: Integrated Intel HD Graphics or AMD APU or Dedicated AMD or Nvidia graphics card. Make sure that the machine has a minimum of 1 GB video memory.
Storage Drive: 10GB free disk space and SSD is ideal for finishing the rendering process faster.
Internet: Internet connection is required for registration and the Filmstock library.
Readers can consider it recommended or minimum requirements coming from the brand. We have tested the product on a low-end machine, which struggled a little, but it was quite usable. However, you won’t have any problem with mid-range computers, and we have mentioned the specifications sheet above.
2. User-friendly Interface
Wondershare designed it keeping novice and intermediate users in mind, and you got nothing to worry about the functions. Even if new users are not familiar with the product, watching video tutorials for one or two hours is enough to get started quickly. The tool is totally newbie-friendly.
The player is a preview window that allows you to watch the edited video in real-time. We must say that you need good specifications to watch the edited video in real-time.
- A) Drag & Drop Images, Videos, Audio, and other media elements in the section. The video editor will hold the necessary files in that section.
- B) The magic happens at the bottom, where you can make changes to the video, and add new elements in the RAW footage.
Take a minimum of four days to master the program because Filmora9 is designed for beginners. Allow us to give you an insight that if you master Filmora9, then you can work with any video editing program out there. You should check out Wondershare Filmora9 Basic Video Tutorial for better understanding and make good use of the new features.
3. Inbuilt Presets
Our professionals use Wondershare Filmora9 for its user-friendly environment and inbuilt presets. You don’t have to purchase and download premium add-ons that offer Effects, Overlays, Tiles, and Filters. You can access it from the panel that we have mentioned earlier in the (B) point.
Video editors have 12 categories and combined 158 filters in the library.
Readers have 8 categories and combined 87 overlays in the library.
Professionals don’t have to pay a single penny for the inbuilt presets, and you got a dedicated store. Unlike other similar products, you have to find third-party plugins to add effects in the videos, but that isn’t the case.
4. Video Stabilization
Video cameras do have a physical image stabilization feature, but they are relatively new and don’t have the momentum that is required in most cases. Readers can remove the shakiness in the video using software-based video stabilization.
However, you cannot expect magic from software-based image stabilization because it can remove the shakiness from the video file to some point. But, it isn’t a magical solution, and it does help in most cases, and it is an excellent feature to have in the arsenal.
5. Chroma Key
If you are a gaming creator, you know what Chroma Key is and its importance in the gaming industry. Gamers can remove the background, and add the selected objected from the webcam or camera. You can remove everything from the background and have your face in the video.
The advanced Chroma Key allows you to select the Colors, Tolerance, Offset, Edge Thickness, and Edge Feather. Don’t worry about the unknown options in the snapshot because there are plenty of tutorials available online.
6. In-built Recording Capabilities
The majority of the consumers don’t know who to configure complex recording solutions like OBS Studio, and this is where Filmora9 comes handy. Readers can record PC screen, Webcam, and Microphone (Voiceover).
We were eager to know the recording capabilities, and you can check out the video recorder options. Readers can select screen aspect ratio or customize it, and control the environment. We were surprised by the output quality, which is impressive and available in different video formats.
Wondershare rose to popularity because of the affordable premium packages.
- Annual Plan $39.99 per year.
- Lifetime Plan $69.99 per year.
- Annual Bundle Plan $99.87 per year.
Paying $39.99 per year on the license might seem a lot, but we have used a $1500 per year video editing program. You can imagine the price difference that we were paying for the same advanced features. It’s cheaper compared to the popular solutions in the market and offering a lifetime license. Wondershare started in 2003, and you don’t have to worry about anonymous companies selling lifetime licenses and disappearing in a few months.
We recommend the readers to try the free version to understand its potential and make your final decision on whether to purchase it or move on to something else. The software is around for a long time and has been providing wonderful solutions to the customers. We have been using Wondershare Filmora9 for editing professional wedding videos, corporate events, and other similar projects. It’s quick, fast, and consumes lesser hardware resources.
