System Requirements

Wondershare Filmora is relatively lightweight compared to other video editing programs; especially professional grade, industry standards like Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere Pro and VEGAS Pro. This means that Filmora’s minimum requirements are easier to meet, as well. Here’s a brief rundown of what you’ll need:

  • A supported OS
    • Windows 7, 8 or 10
    • OS X 10.9 or later
  • 2 GHz Intel/AMD processor
  • 2GB of RAM

Because this program is somewhat new to the industry, there’s not a lot of clamor for backwards compatibility. However, Wondershare does offer a download link of previous versions of the program–for Mac users using an older OS that may not be able to support Filmora’s current iteration.

As with most video editing programs today, a 64-bit OS is recommended; and exceeding the minimum processor and RAM requirements is never a bad thing. You do need to at least 8GB of RAM if you want to use Filmora to edit in HD and 4K.
