Does well at one thing and that's cropping. Doesn't reencode so there's no need to fiddle with output settings and processing is quick. Compiling multiple clips into one file is also possible. Limited in other areas like rotating video and the UI looks very Vista in a bad way.
Can't transform clips at all, not even do basic rotations.
i don't recommend it, it can't write output, my cutted video got hung at 60% even though i waited 2 hours, it just doesn't work.
I thought it was a pain in the butt! No help menu, difficult to mark exactly where you want to cut. Even after that, it never did cut, well, anything. Sucks
Linux support is flakey. The choices you have are:
download 2.8 GB of crap and run a 'Flat Pak'
bind yourself into another closed eco-system -- Snap -- antithetical to 'Open Source'
compile your own from source
Yeah, very helpful for the droves of refugees to Linux from the Windows world -- NOT!
Hung at 66% of clip 3/3 on output. Nice interface, but useless if it can't write output.
Worked great in the past now I'm unable to open files on Windows it just hangs forever and on linux saving hangs at 66% when I export a file.
Now I moved to Lossless Cut, works much better, but VidCutter had a better UI.
