    The interface is really different from Filmora, and many of the features that are in Filmora are either hard to reach in Kdenlive or not there. Overall, I found Kidenlive to be very different from Filmora and really complicated.

    It is free and you can find almost every thing you need to edit your video. The only thing I miss in Kdenlive is the subtitles option. Thank you for your great job...

    Shotcut vs Wondershare Filmora opinions
    Some users think Shotcut is a great alternative to Wondershare Filmora, some don't.

    Honestly, the only problem I keep having is that everything goes mute after a while to where I have to save my project and restart. Other than that, it is a pretty good alternative
