What is a .filmf File?

To get started, I’d like to help you get a clue about FILMF files. A file with .filmf file extension is not a video file but a video editing project file created by FilmForth video editor. It is used as the reference of the stored video editing project information such as transition effects, audio/video track, rendering settings, etc.

Project files are commonly seen and used in mainstream video editing programs, while most video editing beginners have trouble understanding what they are exactly and how to convert them to compatible video formats such as MP4 and MOV, so they can share on social media or video-sharing platforms.

In our earlier posts, we’ve discussed how to convert popular video project files to compatible video formats: WFP to MP4, PRPROJ to MP4.
