Too unstable and too slow on Windows 10 x64 in any compatibility mode or without one.
Splitting a video may take minutes regardless of the CPU/GPU/RAM.
Export may hang or crash at any moment if you have some speed effects applied to any part of any clip.
The preview is laggy, can't handle multiple tracks in full speed even if one of them is an audio.
Can't handle somewhat big files (2+Gb) without freezes and/or crashes.

If you must use a free software - give KDENLive a try. It has issues under Windows too, but not so many.

What little I've worked with OpenShot has been nice. The only problem is that it's prone to crashing. A lot. In fact, it absolutely will not function in any way on my laptop, but my desktop is fine. I would LOVE to be able to use it though, so I highly recommend at least giving it a go. If it doesn't work, find something else. If it does, count yourself lucky and enjoy!

I am impressed so far. I might even start making some videos for my website again since I found OpenShot.

Very impressive indeed and very intuitive (I have previously used PiTiVi and Windows Movie Maker and avidemux). Well worth a try.


Ok alternative
