      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 ...)

      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.

      1. It's free 2.It's professional 3. It's used by professionals. The edit side is not as user-friendly as Vegas but the colour grading side is unbeatable.

      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.
