Create New Project

A project file will store information about your videos. Learn how to create a new project with Filmora for Mac.

For every project you create, Wondershare Filmora for Mac makes a project file (.wfp). This file contains the settings you select for each sequence in the project and editing decisions, effects, and music used in the project.

  • Filmora project files don't store video, audio, or image files. Instead, they store only references to these media files based on the file names and locations. So if you move, rename, or delete a source file, Filmora won't be able to find it automatically the next time you open a project that uses that piece of media.
  • For convenience, Filmora offers you the option of archiving your source files with the project.
