      Melutox Probably the best video editing program for small creators out there, and it's open source like all good software should be, and on top of that it's also free! If you want an alternative to those expensive, complicated industry standard programs and you want the experience to be easy and hassle-free, Kdenlive is for you.

      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.
      Top positive comment  about 4 years ago

      It's supposedly a "non-linear multitrack" editor, but you can't even select multiple clips at once on the timeline. A real pain.

      It is so user friendly and also has a lot of features. It works well with low end PC

      zokris OpenShot is very user-friendly and intuitive, but can absolutely not replace a professional video editor. Too many features are missing.
      Negative comment 8 months ago

      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.

      Not easy to use and some of the controls are just weird/confusing.

      Avidemux vs Adobe Premiere Pro
      pros, cons and recent comments
      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.
      Negative comment almost 6 years ago

      avidemux is used only for coding, so actual cutting is impossible
