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 ;)
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.
Buggy on Windows 10, had to delete. Crashes constantly.
Easy to use, fast, with features that matches most common needs.
Please don't forget Blender 3D!
Although the built-in NLE is not as advanced as Kdenlive at first sight. I can't find an open source NLE to match Kdenlive on Windows (I use Kdenlive all the time on my Linux machine), however Blender is available on the Windows platform.
Once you've got used to it, you can do almost anything that can be done in the top-end packages by getting your work flow in the right order. Blender has an amazing compositor too. Be prepared to use a lot of disk space during the edit as it is best to save each frame as an uncompressed, or lossless compressed file, this allows great freedom to work on sections of you're video.
It allows more choices (usually via ffmpeg, etc) of container / codec formats than most. It also supports a large range of resolutions and frame rates, including user defined ones.
On top of all that Blender 3D is a full featured 3D animation package!
So under Windows GIMP + Blender 3D.
Under Linux GIMP + Blender 3D -> Kdenlive (for final assembly and some FX/Transitions).
Oh and Audacity for sound fx, etc.
If I want 5.1 audio, I use Audacity to output the final audio file and stitch them together using ffmeg or a DVD Authoring package.
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.
Only currently available on Windows as a beta. portable installation.
Featured but unstable product, I can't even edit my project anymore.
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.

awesome, powerful free software, great editing workflow
The only software of this kind that actually works well.
(..I run Linux..)
Best free (as freedom) editing software for GNU/linux users.
GUI same to Adobe premiere and little bit hard for new users and windows version still beta and install hard not a exe I mean start and next next not like that.
I hope say what I mean.
