      alephdiallo I think Kdenlive is one of the best because it's just like Vegas Pro. I don't think I can sentence mix in it. I'll try doing that later.

      Much more feature-packed than OpenShot, and the layout is closer to Vegas.

      Wow, it's has the same workflow as sony vegas, not that much memory usage, very fast (I tried openshot, lol what a joke, it was terrible to do edit on it, and I was at 8GB/8GB memory ...)

      Ugotsta Workflow is similar enough to Vegas that it's relatively easy to get accustomed to meanwhile it provides core features like composite blends and keyframe animation. Development is active so it continues to advance.

      Shotcut is an AMAZING video editing software. I used Vegas 16 and later Shotcut. The workflow is very similar. Great alternative to Vegas.

      MB85_STUDIO Pick a reason why you want to report DaVinci Resolve, Try to provide any extra info that could be relevant, like links to more info and similar. The program does not work properly on Linux. Very few video formats are accepted. You have to convert your recorded videos into a format suitable for DaVinci Resolve. This is annoying and ultimately costs more storage space. I prefer to use Kdenlive on Linux.

      macOS-only, so you'd have to switch platforms and buy new equipment to use it. iMovie is a low end consumer editor. It competes with Vegas Movie Studio, not Vegas Pro. It has only 1/10th the functionality of Vegas Pro...
