I'm coming from PowerDirector and Filmora which have only trial, I really like Kdenlive and the tools it has to offer.
Good to know:
You can preview transitions as long as your 2 photos or videos are into a different track (see https://kdenlive.org/en/project/kdenlive-transitions/ ). Alas there is no import files with automatic random transition added with one click ala OpenShot.
And there is a "built feature to add text" (see "add title clip" where you add your project files).
See ya ;)
Buggy on Windows 10, had to delete. Crashes constantly.
Open source but "invalid clip error" is bad. You can fix this, download ffmpeg and extract bin folder to kdenlive bin folder thats it now accept almost all codec and format. But some times crashing app soo I not prefer.

I used Openshot for over half a year. I got tried of it's bugs and crashes.** Why didn't i see this earlier ???** This is so much more awesome and I worked on it for over 2 hours, and it didn't crash or lag even once.
Totally recommend it :)
Have tried KdenLive numerous times over a period of about 12 years and never liked it actually. Decided to give the new version another try and ... YES!
Finally the developers made great progress concerning stability, fairly logic gui/workflow and flexibility.
Meanwhile OpenShot has made great progress as well. Don't know what Linux distribution you're using, maybe it's repositories only support a older version of OpenShot. Recent versions work fine. So at last we have at least 2 pretty useful applications for simple video editing.
Kdenlive is good, some features are easier than Shotcut but the rendering time is a lot longer than Shotcut.
Render option is poor, not much settings or you have to learn more about ffmpeg parameters but it seems those questions are not get answered.
Back to Shotcut, the export options is a lot easier. No need to learn any parameter command.
Both Kdenlive and Shotcut are good alternative to Adobe Premiere.
I was looking for an affordable solution in order to synchronise two or more video tracks and one audio track recorded with a pro gear. I've tested many software and I've found that this synchronisation operation was the discriminant between pro and consumer software (understand cheap or rather expensive software) !
Now, with Kdenlive, synchronising all these tracks is a matter of selecting the audio track as reference and to sync the others according to the former : three clicks no more !
It's also very simple to show one or an another video track in the final movie according to the selected angle.
Best editor so far for me.
Near Terabyte Install, lots of Terminate-Stay-Resident apps running on background, Non-intuitive Interface (Explanative but...). This is the first 10 minute experience anyone will have until getting used to its "Quirks" that doesn't exist in most of competitive software doing the very same job. Even if freeware, no thank you for such complicated piece of software. Might be good for ones seeking Adobe Premiere alternatives but it's far far away from being Simplistic as User Friendly at all.
Well, after 2 years i successfully rendered a video on windows10.
Easy to use, fast, with features that matches most common needs.
After trying Kino, Lives, PiTiVi and Avidemux, I came upon Kdenlive. While they all got the pixel aspect ratio for video from my Canon FS200 wrong, Kdenlive allows me to easily change this parameter. It even reads the native .MOD files produced by the camera. Kdenlive's interface is intuitive and powerful.
I liked the software and preferred it over Kino which is bundled with Ubuntu. Its a non-linear Video editing suite. The software is akin to Windows Movie Maker but is more powerful. It has many effects and filters, and after you finish editing it has the option of making, VCD, DVD, Mpeg-I, or Mpeg-2 file.
It just works! It's easy to learn once you tried just about any other video editing software in the past. Intuitive and blazing fast & lightweight on computer resources.
Doesn't over-complicate simple tasks like trimming down a long video file.
While it is similar to Premiere and is a fairly straight forward video editor, it's not very stable (crashed 3 times though thank God it has an auto recovery option) and it took forever to render out my video only for me to find that it didn't bring in the entire clip so I lost a good 20 minutes of the footage. Not very useful.
