FilmoraPro Video Editor
The Ways you can create a project
When you launch FilmoraPro, the Home Screen will appear from where you will get access to the recent projects or you can start the new ones.
Click on "Create a New Project" option to reach the edit screen of the software application. From there, you can start importing the media assets or placing the video clips to the timeline. But, before that, you need to visit the File menu and open the Project Settings option to make the necessary settings.
The Project Settings window that appears on the screen will give you various options to modify the properties of the project you are working on. Under the pop-up Settings window, Editor and Rendering tabs are available. It will enable FilmoraPro’s users to customize the plans as per their requirement.
What You Get Under the Editor Tab
Various template project settings are available; you can choose any one of them as they are fully compatible with 4K or HD footage at 60 fps (Frames per Second) gives you a manual option to modify or change the project settings, as well as you can create new templates using the save button after done with adjusting the given properties.
For the footage, if you are editing with the help of FilmoraPro, knowing the details of frame rate, resolution, or the aspect ratio makes modifying the project settings easy. However, do not worry if you aren't sure about these technical terms. The auto-adjust settings of the software will customize the details with appropriate values other than the default ones as soon as you import the file.
- Width – Adjusting the horizontal dimension of the video with a maximum number of pixels within the project. The maximum resolution that you can apply on a video depends upon the hardware part of the system where the software got installed. If you want to know more about the video resolutions supported under FilmoraPro, then scroll down to Resolution section of this manual.
- Height – Adjusting the vertical dimension of the video with a maximum number of pixels within the project. The computer hardware becomes the determining factor in defining the maximum resolution of the imported video in the project. To know more about the supported video resolution under FilmoraPro, scroll down to resolution section of the manual.
- Frame Rate - This section lets you select the required frame rate for your project. Selecting the appropriate one will enhance the video presentation without any deformation.
- Aspect Ratio – Here, for your project, you can select the desired aspect ratio. For most of the cases, choosing the Square aspect ratio is the best option. While working with the anamorphic footage, selecting the Square aspect ratio will come out to be the most reliable option. This option will give you the preview function to see the video clips within a project without any distortion.
The audio section comes with various sample rate options that you can apply with a series of projects. Usually, the sample rate of the whole project should be the same as that of the audio file used in a particular project. However, there might be instances when you have to deal with an audio file with different sample rates. In that scenario, you can rectify the issue by opting for the required sample rate at the time you are going to export the project file.
How you can use the Rendering Tab
You can not only control the overall quality of audio or video files imported into the software but also control the playback quality of the footage. Under the Rendering Tab, the displayed options only modify the effects visible within the software that will not impact the output quality of the video. Higher quality playback settings will enhance the visibility of the images that you see in FilmoraPro. Further, you can view the footage in faster mode by opting less demanding environments. For a smooth workflow base, you can edit the Rendering options at different points of the video editing process. You can go with high-quality playback settings while doing video editing and then move towards lower resolution playback options to preview the results.
Different Color Bit Depth – The following Color Bit Depth modes are available
- 8-Bit Integer – The color depth can be limited to 8 bits per channel, that will restrict the colors to 0-255 values. 8-Bit Integer helps reduce the rendering time.
- 16-Bit Float – Extending the dynamic range of images as well as retaining the details under highlights and shadows. Helpful in enhancing the playback quality within the software for the footage, though rendering time increases to some extent.
At any point of time, you can easily modify the Color Bit Depth from Render Tab available under the Options Window. Here you can use the lower color depth during editing, and then with the 16-Bit Float option, you can preview the video.
What is Antialiasing Mode?
During the rendering process at the diagonal lines, it reduces aliasing. It is a default feature applicable to exported video from the software, but for any working project, you have the option to turn it On or Off as per the requirement of the project. There exist two antialiasing process by the software, 4x MSAA, and 8xMSAA.

After you are over with all the adjustments and changes you need in the Project Settings, confirm the action by pressing the OK button.
