      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.

      Cinelerra is a highly advanced and professional non-linear video editing software, but still remains open source. Cinelerra solves three main tasks: capturing, editing and compositing.
      This alternative is disputed. Cinelerra is still a legitimate alternative to MAGIX Vegas Pro, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
