    • Good alternative. Old problems looks like a fixed that is good. Free and Open source that is awesome :) OKTAYMERCANJul 2019 • 6 agrees and 2 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 • 10 agrees and 5 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • This software has to most to offer as an opensource/free video editor. It doesn't have a big learning curve, and the community for support is huge. austinkesslerOct 2018 • 7 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • The installer for Windows is broken and not updated. Guest • Jun 2020 Disagree   Agree
    • Its garbage compared to Premiere Pro. Guest • Apr 2020 Disagree   Agree
    • Free, easy, have a tutorial on YouTube caeJun 2018 • 3 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • The only nonlinear video editor I've found with automatic shot/scene detection for splitting larger clips. EvergreenTreesDec 2016 • 15 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • This is my favorite Adobe Premiere alternative for Linux. Kdenlive is great on Linux. However, on Windows and macOS, Kdenlive is a buggy mess. pizzalovingnerdOct 2018 • 6 agrees and 1 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 • 13 agrees and 5 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 • 4 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Active development community, and plenty of community made guides. landonjobetheflagcourierApr 2017 • 4 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Kdenlive is a very good video editor and the best fact is that it's free! cosbotApr 2017 • 8 agrees and 4 disagrees Disagree   Agree

  • Shotcut

    Shotcut is a free, open source, cross-platform, non-linear video editor. Supports hundreds of audio and video formats and codecs thanks to FFmpeg. No import required...

    • 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 • 5 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Of all the free Premiere alternatives I've tried, this is the easiest one to work with and it seems very reliable. lau22Feb 2019 • 6 agrees and 4 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 • 5 agrees and 4 disagrees 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 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It is a free software, it doesn't crash every time like other free softwares mahdimeskinFeb 2018 • 1 agrees and 2 disagrees 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 • 12 agrees and 7 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Simple and good, but needs keyframes maybe. Guest • Feb 2017 • 6 agrees and 6 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 8 disagrees Disagree   Agree

  • OpenShot

    We designed OpenShot Video Editor to be an easy to use, quick to learn, and surprisingly powerful video editor. Take a quick look at some of our most popular features...

    • Not easy to use and some of the controls are just weird/confusing. Guest • Oct 2019 • 2 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • it's verry basic compared to premire Guest • Feb 2019 • 7 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • With OpenShot it's impossible change even font's size and the font itself. Have to use another software for this, Inkscape in this case?!. Are you kidding me? I can not understand how snap works, well, always if it works. Its interface looks so "childish". And it lags when preview. No "paragon" with Adobe Pr. Trying it was just waste of time. V 2.5.1 @Win10 @i7-8850H with 16GB Ram. Guest • Apr 2020 Disagree   Agree
    • Too basic, good for begginers but lacks tons of mid to advanced range features. Guest • Sep 2017 • 15 agrees and 3 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Its more like iMovie than Adobe Premiere Pro Guest • Nov 2018 • 3 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It's a basic editor, not like Adobe Premiere Pro, but good nonetheless. Guest • Dec 2016 • 24 agrees and 12 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • This is a little too basic, buggy, unstable, and has lots of visual glitches pizzalovingnerdOct 2018 • 7 agrees and 2 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 • 5 agrees and 3 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Way too basic. Way too many bugs. You need third-party programs for some features. someonelastJun 2018 • 2 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree

  • Avidemux

    Free and simple video editor that supports a variety of file types and automated tasks.

    • Premiere is an NLE, non-linear editor, it has a multitrack timeline in which multiple clips from various sources can be cut together. Avidemux does not have a multi-track timeline and can only set basic in/out cut points and join clips together in a strictly linear fashion; it is a linear editor at best. Guest • May 2015 Disagree   Agree
    • avidemux is used only for coding, so actual cutting is impossible Guest • May 2015 Disagree   Agree

    • It would rather be an alternative to After Effects than to Premiere. Guest • Jul 2018 • 8 agrees and 1 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 • 7 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
