      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.
