    • The only nonlinear video editor I've found with automatic shot/scene detection for splitting larger clips. EvergreenTreesDec 2016 • 9 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Kdenlive is a very good video editor and the best fact is that it's free! cosbotApr 2017 • 6 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Kdenlive is an advanced, but also simple editing program. It's a little tricky to install but definitely worth it! Guest • Jun 2017 • 8 agrees and 4 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • I'ts simple to use if you've ever used a non-linear editor and has most of the features necesary for good content creation. Guest • Sep 2017 • 2 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It is open source and so only does what it says it does. Who knows what Adobe has their product do in the background? Guest • Apr 2018 • 2 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Active development community, and plenty of community made guides. landonjobetheflagcourierApr 2017 • 3 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Kdenlive is easy to use and a good alternative for Adobe Premiere Pro! Guest • Dec 2016 • 4 agrees and 6 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • It's a basic editor, not like Adobe Premiere Pro, but good nonetheless. Guest • Dec 2016 • 18 agrees and 11 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Too basic, good for begginers but lacks tons of mid to advanced range features. Guest • Sep 2017 • 5 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It's a very basic software and there are often bugs related to tracks, like audio or video that won't go in the target track. However it can be an useful alternative to movie maker, but not premiere pro, in any way. Guest • Oct 2017 • 2 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Way too basic. Way too many bugs. You need third-party programs for some features. someonelastJun 2018 Disagree   Agree
    • Versions before 2.2 are not recommended, but the new one is stable and optimized. Guest • Jan 2017 • 7 agrees and 7 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • Simple and good, but needs keyframes maybe. Guest • Feb 2017 • 4 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • The most compatible with all formats and stable on Windows of all Video editors I've tested. It's a pitty that when I'm writing this comment Shotcut does not have keyframe functionality and that effects such as Ken Burns' cannot be created. When in future releases "hopefully" this ability will be incrporated it will be the best free editor I know. RaelitisDec 2017 Disagree   Agree
    • It is a free software, it doesn't crash every time like other free softwares mahdimeskinFeb 2018 Disagree   Agree
    • It's supposedly a "non-linear multitrack" editor, but you can't even select multiple clips at once on the timeline. A real pain. Guest • Mar 2018 Disagree   Agree
    • The only free software that don't crash anytime, and got multiple features (autosave is magic on this one). Supports a lot of video formats. There is not much effects, and the ones here are not amazing, but it's already more than I need. Guest • Sep 2016 • 5 agrees and 5 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Its design language and features are all I need from a video editor, it's also Open Source so you can make derivative versions on your own, if you know how. Guest • Mar 2017 • 0 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • They are both very high quality, but this one manages to crash even more often! It managed to crash literally 13 seconds into using it! Very stable! BildawlApr 2017 • 0 agrees and 5 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • Adobe premiere is a NLE video editing software, whereas Natron is a node-based compositing and special effects software. The two are like comparing Kdenlive to Nuke. Guest • Jan 2018 • 1 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It would rather be an alternative to After Effects than to Premiere. Guest • Jul 2018 Disagree   Agree
