  1. A blogging friend of mine uses Filmora and she’s got some awesome intros. I am glad to learn that using it is free and easy. I just upgraded from Adobe Premiere Elements to Final Cut Pro X, but I am still learning how to use those more sophisticated features. Thanks for sharing something that sounds simple enough to use.
