This software is very user-friendly. Best options for exporting video are predefined. So it is like two clicks and it's done. Very useful

Looks like it has great potential, but kept crashing in my Quad-Core Windows 10 machine.

It didn't work for me on win7. It loses some of the commands after a short period of use. Go figure. I am not a developer but I ain't some amateur also. This software is far from good.

about OpenShot Jun 2011

What little I've worked with OpenShot has been nice. The only problem is that it's prone to crashing. A lot. In fact, it absolutely will not function in any way on my laptop, but my desktop is fine. I would LOVE to be able to use it though, so I highly recommend at least giving it a go. If it doesn't work, find something else. If it does, count yourself lucky and enjoy!
