As with any creative profession, the worst thing about being a videographer is the busywork.

Having to jump between multiple tools for copy editing and post-production makes the process of tweaking audio and removing noise from recordings inconvenient. Quite often, it requires an intricate series of steps to make even a minor change to a video's visuals. 

Perhaps for some people, this painstaking work is satisfying. For most, however, it's simply a means to an end, and becomes an obstacle standing between them and achieving their creative vision. 

For the past several years, Wondershare sought to change that with its leading video editing platform, Filmora. To close the gap between concept and creation, each update has introduced a plethora of new features and adjustments geared towards improving both productivity and efficiency. Filmora 12 is no exception to this. 

To start, it carries over several AI-driven features from previous releases: 

  • Automatic video resizing (Auto Reframe)
  • Intelligent background removal and focus (AI Portrait)
  • Single-click video creation (Instant Mode)

But it also takes things a great deal further, as well. 

Smarter Script Writing Through ChatGPT

The ChatGPT integration arguably represents the most noteworthy addition to Filmora 12, enabling a feature known as Swift Script. Accessible within the main Filmora interface via plugin, Swift Script streamlines the writing process by tapping into ChatGPT's impressive generative AI. Videographers will be able to use the feature to effortlessly produce text for video scripts, captions, descriptions, and more. Wondershare CEO Tobee Wu referred to this in a recent press release as "a game changer for video editing." 

"By integrating this plug-in into our software, we are providing our users with an innovative solution to improve their creative efficiency," said Wu. "Whether you are a business owner, creator, influencer, or professional videographer, Filmora plus ChatGPT boosts efficiency by generating text content without leaving the Filmora editing platform, streamlining the editing process and enhancing video content." 

Intelligent Editing With Smart Cutout

In other video editors, removing unwanted elements or objects from a video is an incredibly time-intensive process that often requires going frame-by-frame. AI Smart Cutout completely sidesteps this problem. With a single click, users can automatically identify the outlines of each object within a video. Users can then easily select, modify, or remove those objects either entirely or for specific frames. 

Filmora users also have four different ways to modify and preview their selection: 

  • Alpha Overlay: The background behind the cutout is displayed as the original image with the matting range fixed and shown in translucent blue.
  • Transparency Grid: The background behind the cutout will display as a schematic diagram of a transparent grid.
  • Transparency Black: The background behind the cutout is displayed in black.
  • Toggle Alpha: The background behind the cutout will be displayed in black, with the area reserved for matting displayed in white.
  • Toggle Alpha (Alpha Black and White Contrast Preview): After the matting is completed, the background will be displayed in black, and the area reserved for matting will be displayed in white

Seamless Synchronization with AI Audio Stretch

You're a videographer, not an audio engineer. Unfortunately, your profession frequently requires you to dabble in both disciplines. AI Audio Stretch represents another step towards a future where that's no longer the case. 

Closely related to Filmora's Auto Beat Sync, AI Audio Stretch automatically rearranges and retimes audio tracks so they mesh with your video length. All it requires is a single click and drag to refine music to virtually any video duration and without any quality loss. For most, this will likely represent a welcome alternative to hours of cumbersome editing, cutting, and tweaking.

If you've ever recorded video anywhere that wasn’t a fully isolated professional sound booth, then you're likely no stranger to background noise. You may even have been forced to accept its presence in one of your videos on at least one occasion — after all, denoising would require time you simply don't have. That's where AI Audio Denoise comes in.

Combining multiple algorithms, this feature intelligently identifies and eliminates background noise and interference from your videos, resulting in crisper, cleaner sound with just a few clicks. You can choose any or all of three distinct noise reduction options, each of which can be refined according to your needs: 

  • AI Voice Enhancement
  • Reverb Reduction
  • Hiss Reduction
