      Is working as of 26/6/2019, not as complete as kdenlive or shotcut (the other ones i've tried) but also simpler to use.

      tuva-hayabi It is relatively easy to use and has a nice GUI. It may not be as extensive and powerful as Kdenlive, but you can do a the most usual video editing with it, and there are some useful filter effects and fadings. The render speed is good.

      Avidemux vs Kdenlive opinions
      This alternative is disputed. Avidemux is still a legitimate alternative to Kdenlive, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
      One is muxing software, the other is editing software.

      AntumDeluge While Avidemux is not nearly as robust & feature-full as Kdenlive, it is still a video editing software & does much more than just mux.

      Some users think Olive Video Editor is a great alternative to Kdenlive, some don't.
      It's very well made despite being in alpha. Olive seems very promising even at the start, and may eventually become better than Kdenlive. Only time will tell, though.
