Developed by Wondershare, Filmora X is one of the most popular and advanced video editing tools that is used on Mac and Windows systems. Recently, it has come up with a brand-new version of Filmora X for Mac with tons of advanced options. Therefore, we decided to check the new features of this video editing Mac application and have come up with a review of these major updates. Without much ado, let’s get into details and know what more you can do with Filmora X for Mac.

What’s new in Wondershare Filmora X for Mac?

Compared to its previous version, the Filmora X video editing Mac application has added the following new features:

AI Portrait

These days, video editors are getting smarter, and Wondershare Filmora X is no such exception. The video editor has integrated advanced Artificial Intelligent features that can automatically remove the background for any portrait video.

Since this is an automatic feature, you don’t need to take the assistance of a green screen or chroma key to manually remove a video’s background. The inbuilt AI tool will do it for you by instantly removing the background, letting you focus on the human portrait. 

To access this option, you just have to add your video to its timeline and go to Effect > AI Portrait. Here, you can check different options for AI Portrait offered by Filmora X (like Human Noise, Human Border, Human Glitch, Human Pixelate, and Human Segmentation). You can just select any AI mode from here and get its instant preview on the side. There are also numerous options to adjust and customize these effects to get the desired video editing results on Mac.

It would be an extremely helpful feature for content creators of all kinds. Let’s say you are working on a video presentation, gaming tutorial, or any educational video. With this option, you can instantly remove the background of your videos and focus on your gameplay or the video lecture instead.

Filmora X has certainly taken a leap with this feature. When we compare it with other video editors for Mac, we discover that only a few editors have a similar feature in the market (while a lot of editing apps lack this option).
