      OpenShot vs VirtualDub opinions
      This alternative is disputed. OpenShot is still a legitimate alternative to VirtualDub, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
      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.
