      OKTAYMERCAN DaVinci resolve, not supporting more format (ex. mkv) and codec. GUI is not bad but too cumbersome even i use GPU support. In the other hand, shotcut supporting even new format and codecs (ex. AV1 and Webm). Even kdenlive not support this new codec.

      Everything Adobe premiere is and its more stable and faster then adobe premiere in alpha. Only downside is the lack of effects and features. But it is in alpha really stable give it a try.
