OpenShot Reviews

If it were only stable

Looks like it has great potential, but kept crashing in my Quad-Core Windows 10 machine.

Unusable crashes often, crashes on export/render. Terrible do not even bother.

Installed on my Windows 10 x64 machine.

Just wanted to load a short video, clip the end off. Put a music track on it. Crashed while trying to to split a track, crashed while trying to change timeline position. Preview is unusable slow. After 30 minutes of fighting just to do the above task. Crashes on trying to export the video out. Googling OpenShot is terrible brings up a couple of blogs about similar issues. So it isn't just me.

Completely useless. Reinforces my opinion that almost everything with a GNU license is complete crap.

I'll probably go back to using Sony Vegas.

It has great potential and features but seems somewhat unstable and what you edit and preview isn't always accurate during rendering.

Nice app, easy to learn and has lots of features that users coming from Windows Movie Maker will find similar.
Easy for simple tasks, powerful for more advanced editing.

Its so basic, you cant do anything like in VSDC. the software is exactly like windows movie maker with the ability to move stuff on screen now.

User friendly

This software is very user-friendly. Best options for exporting video are predefined. So it is like two clicks and it's done. Very useful

It crashes on Windows 10 64bits and Mac OS X, Linux testing pending

about OpenShot · · Helpful Not helpful

I've been using on LinuxMint 3 years ago. It worked fine, but it was an old version. I haven't had a chance to test it now. As soon as I can test it I'll write another review. I think from my past experience that it will work with no problems.
On Windows 10 64bits and Mac OS X El Capitan it crashes when playing the video that it's being edited.
It looks like a great software that maybe works only fluid on linux machines.

Good alternative but not really great yet

about OpenShot · · Helpful Not helpful

It's going to be a good alternative to Vegas once it's done, tho only for light video editing. If you want to do more than just that it's going to be a pain in the a**. Also crashes a lot.

Can't read localized filenames. Crashes all the time.

Doesn't seem compatible with Windows 10

I launched this thing a few times and did some basic importing and splitting video files until the app crashed each time, usually in under 5 minutes.

Useless

about OpenShot · · Helpful Not helpful

As others mentioned already: crashes

Agreed. Can't even get the damn thing past opening it. Window flickers and there's some splash screen where there's a checkbox "don't show this again at startup" that can't even be checked. Uninstalled. (Version 2.4, Xubuntu 16.04.) suspect some dependencies missing or wrong versions called for, or permissions not set properly on install (from ppa or deb, either one.)

Total Crap

It could not even load an 8 second video before crashing. How this pile of crap has over 100 likes is beyond my understanding.

Bug after bug after bug...ON WIN 7

about OpenShot · · Helpful Not helpful

It didn't work for me on win7. It loses some of the commands after a short period of use. Go figure. I am not a developer but I ain't some amateur also. This software is far from good.
