    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    Olive is currently not very feature packed, but is still a great editor and is much more stable than Vegas or Kdenlive.
