      Douze It's also free and open-source, but i found Kdenlive had a lot more features and was a lot more complex than OpenShot could be. A Windows version is also being worked and, even if it's not perfect right now, it works quite well !

      sicko 3D animations and 2D movies are similar to work with, no wonder Blender has both as it is 3D modeling & animation application.

      dspjm Although blender is a 3D editor, it still has powerful video editing functionalities.

      Yes, Blender has video editing tools, but this is like recommending a car mechanic to someone who just wants a car wash.
