OpenShot Reviews

Nice app, easy to learn and has lots of features that users coming from Windows Movie Maker will find similar.
Easy for simple tasks, powerful for more advanced editing.

It crashes on Windows 10 64bits and Mac OS X, Linux testing pending

about OpenShot · ·

I've been using on LinuxMint 3 years ago. It worked fine, but it was an old version. I haven't had a chance to test it now. As soon as I can test it I'll write another review. I think from my past experience that it will work with no problems.
On Windows 10 64bits and Mac OS X El Capitan it crashes when playing the video that it's being edited.
It looks like a great software that maybe works only fluid on linux machines.

Good alternative but not really great yet

about OpenShot · ·

It's going to be a good alternative to Vegas once it's done, tho only for light video editing. If you want to do more than just that it's going to be a pain in the a**. Also crashes a lot.

Doesn't seem compatible with Windows 10

I launched this thing a few times and did some basic importing and splitting video files until the app crashed each time, usually in under 5 minutes.

Total Crap

about OpenShot · ·

It could not even load an 8 second video before crashing. How this pile of crap has over 100 likes is beyond my understanding.

Unusable crashes often, crashes on export/render. Terrible do not even bother.

Installed on my Windows 10 x64 machine.

Just wanted to load a short video, clip the end off. Put a music track on it. Crashed while trying to to split a track, crashed while trying to change timeline position. Preview is unusable slow. After 30 minutes of fighting just to do the above task. Crashes on trying to export the video out. Googling OpenShot is terrible brings up a couple of blogs about similar issues. So it isn't just me.

Completely useless. Reinforces my opinion that almost everything with a GNU license is complete crap.

I'll probably go back to using Sony Vegas.

1/5 Crashes often.

The program crashes a lot and the video in the preview lags horribly. Do not get this.
