Being a big fan of audio and video editing software, she always wants to share her skills with friends like you. That’s why she is here to help you. Do not hesitate to ask her if you are confused with our products.

For Mac users, it is pretty handy to use iMovie to edit videos. iMovie is quick and easy-to-use but still has some limitations, like it is tricky to place audio tracks and keep them where you wanted in iMovie. So it is common that you think iMovie is not good enough.

Now I would like to recommend you an alternative video editing software which also works perfectly well on Mac - Filmora Video Editor for Mac. This video editing application allows Mac users to produce professional-looking videos with little effort. What's even better, this powerful video editor comes with some extra features that iMovie can't compare. Now let’s take a look at the details of both of them.

Part 2 Conclusion

Both Filmora Video Editor for Mac and iMovie are users-friendly, which are good editors for Mac users. As you might notice that iMovie can not only work on Mac but also on mobile. Sold in a low price, iMovie is good enough for some basic video editing.

However, if you need to produce a really professional video, I am afraid that iMovie is not as good as Filmora Video Editor for Mac, which comes with a lot more editing features. Unlike iMovie, Filmora’s strong compatibility is a shining point that will help you handle videos in different formats easily.

Now you acquire the detailed knowledge about Filmora Video Editor for Mac and iMovie. I think it would be better to use them by yourself and see whether they are suitable for you or not. Here you can download the free trial version of Filmora Video Editor for Mac. Now just have a try.
