Kdenlive vs OpenShot opinions
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 !
Significantly more complex, but even for my basic editing needs the stability helps A LOT compared to OpenShot
pretty good gpu support for encoding
Loads more features, better looking interface.
I find that compared to openshot, kdenlive has more features and seems a lot more responsive during editing and previewing.

Blender vs OpenShot opinions
3D animations and 2D movies are similar to work with, no wonder Blender has both as it is 3D modeling & animation application.
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.
Fanboys just can't pass up an opportunity to recommend Blender... Even when it's a terrible recommendation for the task.
Blender is for 3D, not video editing

Free and simple video editor that supports a variety of file types and automated tasks. SIMPLE video editor, dedicated for ONE video at a time. NOT for multi video editing/montage.
Avidemux vs OpenShot opinions
Only for very simple, single tasks, not for editing a film or so.
Can't combine clips, only edits single clips
Missing a lot of editing features
This is the best SIMPLEST video cutter. You can remove unwanted parts so easily..just mark start and end at any point in the clip..extremely easy

VirtualDub vs OpenShot opinions
Virtualdub is for quick and easy cut and paste tasks or filtering. Openshot seems to be more advanced and rich in features, and is probably more heavy and has more effects.
