    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...

    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.

    Although I like Avidemux, you cannot capture video with it.

    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.

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

    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.
