      abdowise 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...

      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.

      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

      The cutting video function do not work as well. Cropping is nowhere near as convenient.
