  • Can Effects and Packs from the Filmora Effects Store work on FilmoraPro?

    Effect Store Effects and Packs are not compatible with FilmoraPro. FilmoraPro has its own selection of effects with extensive customization options!

    On top of the upgraded feature set, you can still access and use Filmora Effects and Packs in Filmora9!

  • Why is FilmoraPro running slow?

    The more powerful your computer, the faster FilmoraPro will perform. In addition to hardware, FilmoraPro performance depends on three factors:

    1. The number of effects on the currently viewed frame. More effects will take longer to render.
    2. The complexity of effects on the currently viewed frame. A complicated particular simulation will take longer to render than a brightness & contrast effect, for example.
    3. The format of your video footage. Formats designed for editing such as DnxHD and ProRes decode much more quickly than most common varieties of H.264, for example.

    If you are encountering slow performance it will be due to a combination of the above factors.

    You can improve performance in-program by disabling rendering features such as shadows, lighting, motion blur and depth of field, or by temporarily turning off layers you are not currently working on.

    Always ensure that your drivers are up to date, especially your graphics card drivers.

  • How can I clear my cache?

    In rare cases, the FilmoraPro plugin or other third party plugins may develop an issue and no longer be available in the FilmoraPro effects panel. This can be corrected by clearing the plugin cache, to reset the plugins.

    Depending on your system, the plugin cache is located st one of these locations: 

    Windows
    C:\ProgramData\Wondershare\FilmoraPro\ofxPluginCache

    Mac
    Library/Application Support/Wondershare/FilmoraPro/ofxPluginCache

    Close FilmoraPro if it is running, then navigate to that folder, and move the entire contents to the trash. Empty the trash, then relaunch FilmoraPro, and your plugins will once again be available.

  • How do I edit my video projects?

    FilmoraPro combines video editing, visual effects. The editor features a multi-track timeline, trimmer, transitions, volume and opacity graphs and essential editing tools such as roll, ripple, slip and slide.

    Unique to FilmoraPro is the ability to select any clip on your editing timeline and instantly convert it to a ‘composite shot’, enabling you to add visual effects without needing to export shots and transfer video between multiple programs. This revolutionary workflow provides a super-fast, interactive approach to post-production.
