Multi-Clip Editing for Mac

Multiple clip editing makes editing so easy, and Filmora also offers this. With the help of this feature, users can apply the same effects to different clips simultaneously. It will be replacing the "Batch Edit" feature of Wondershare Filmora with better functionality. Where users could only perform multi-editing in text layers, it can now be applied across text and video layers likewise. To learn more about this feature and its functionality, review the section below:
