      Kdenlive vs VirtualDub opinions

      The simplest video task of all time: take a couple PNGs and output *some* form of video, is already too much for this. Lots of pretty surface, but not much actual ability underneath...

      LesterCovax Simple, yet powerful program for quick edits (whether muxing or re-encoding). Seeking through key-frames is simple, and there are some additional filters for simple tasks.

      VirtualDub is easy to use and full of features. You can easily cut a piece out of a video within 1 minute. OpenShot does not offer such easy accessibility. After 15 minutes i was not able to cut a part out of video and save it. I deinstalled it.

      VirtualDub is a _lightning fast_ and _free_ tool, Adobe Premiere Pro is an _expensive_ _proprietary_ _bloated_ _dinosaur_. In addition, Adobe Premiere lacks the important feature of editing without recompression.
