Pros: This is the most awesome piece of software for videos editing. I just install it to a VM and use the app to convert/create/edit video using its api. Just awesome. I have also tried the desktop version with GT710 my entry level card and its output was smooth. Playback for 1080/30fps is just smooth and doesn't take many resources. As it is an Opensource and community-driven software I can use it for free and for anything. Some transactions effects and sound channels. It is still its first stage and evolving rapidly.

Cons: As it is an Open-source software I have to wait if got any problem or find my own solutions for it. The effects are limited due to no team is developing them.

Overall: If you are experimenting and want a completely free/ open-source solution for your video editing solution this software is for you. I just update it to my KVM VPS and I have a cloud editor all by myself. The feature is simple, effects are not that impressive but it workes.

Pros: Openshot is a free and open source software. It is maintained by a community of programmers that are very helpful in keeping it working and up to date. It has a wide range of transitions, and even has an add on for Firefox.

Cons: As with a lot of open source software Openshot can be buggy at times, and occasionally some of the features do not work as well as they do in paid software, but if you do run into any issues, there is a huge community of users to assist you with any issues.

Overall: I use to use Openshot to edit my drone footage, and I still do from time to time. I have never had any issues with it, and it has always done the job excellently.

Pros: While Openshot is a good video editor in general my favorite feature is its powerful audio editing. When I need to create a video with an intense soundtrack Openshot is my go to editor.

Cons: While Openshot is a good editor it has a tendency to lag and can even get so bad while lagging that it will freeze and crash. This has cause me to move to other video editors, but I still use Openshot for the audio editor.

Overall: I can create videos in several different formats with very complex and intense audio added in. Openshot is perfect for a Youtuber on a budget.

Pros: OpenShot is a free, easy to use and open source software for video editing. It has a user frinedly interface. The main window lets you access all video editing features, preview your work and access the timeline. It is available for Linux, Windows, and Mac. It also provide free built in effects and animations for your clips to make beautiful. It also have great 3D title generating support.

Cons: 3D animation generating feature is not a built-in feature. You must have to install "Blender" software to generate 3D animation titles.

Overall: I have been edited many videos with OpenShot software very easily. I like it.

Fast, fully customizable, but with a slightly steep learning curve

Pros: OpenShot Video Editor is probably the most powerful video editor and exported one can use on Fedora Linux. Anything and everything can be added to it's collection, from basic color correction to fully custom transitions, and there is a big community that shares their own. Rendering can be done in virtually every format and file type. Do not let the zero price fool you; this is a tool for professionals.

Cons: Although it is really ease to use once its fully customized, customization itself can be somewhat hard. But otherwise, it wouldn't be possible to be that powerful. For a more simple experience, one can use other applications which are made for that purpose, but don't dwell into professional video editing.

Overall: I've used OpenShot Video Editor in the past. At first, I preferred simpler applications, but once I had to make a half-hour project from more than 5 hours of audio and multi-cam video footage, I had to go for something more serious. Because I had to customize OpenShot Video Editor to my needs for said project, now I only use this, even for the simplest task.

Pros: OpenShot is free and open source video editor. It has a lot of features and the best one, by my humble opinion, is audio editing and audio options that are available to anyone that is interested to learn and make something more.

Cons: It knows sometimes to lag, or to freeze for few minutes and then just crash. Fortunately, it's not so often.

Overall: It is good enough for our professional and personal youtube channels and simple not so demanding professional video presentations.

Pros: I like the variety of effect and transitions that were provided with the software. I have used other programs in the past and they did not nowhere near as many effects and transistions.

Cons: I could not read the descriptions at the bottom of the screen, it could be placed better. I could not see the clips button to see the additional features

Overall: I was working on creating some online business videos and the software is very capable of doing that

Pros: Easy to use

Great for Beginners

Fun

Better than Others

Cons: Awful Compatibility

Videos come out with broken audio

Videos sometimes don't come out at all, bye bye 1 hour of work.

ONLY accepts mp4 nothing else

Glitchy as fuck

Laggy Beyond Use

Crashes 5 times per video

Overall: I hate this thing so much that I would highly recommend to NEVER use it. Ive wasted way too much of my time on this just for it to come out as crap or don't come out at all.

Pros: Open shot is completely opensource application available for free. I have used to convert old video files to latest formats and was impressed by the quality of conversion with no loss of quality for reduced file size. There were stability issues in the early releases of the application, which were resolved later using custom developed software libraries.

Cons: openshot application is resource hungry while in use. Also since the application is not optimized for different hardware configurations the performance will vary on older and newer systems

Pros: It is free and has comprehensive tutorials on the web. I know other editors and when I used the Open Shot video editor, I felt it was extremely easy.

It works on almost every platform, the window formats are friendly, and you can do everything you know: use multiple file types, organize, animate, and apply clips and music effects (including 3d effects). In addition, the video can be exported in several formats

Cons: I think, for a free software, there are no cons. And for problems, you can find a lot of help in the web community

Pros: OpenShot is incredibly simple to use. Modeled similar to the default video editor installed on Windows versions previous to Windows 8, the advantage to this program is that it is cross-platform and supports chroma key.

Cons: While the program is simple, it can also be very buggy. Also, the effects are very limited. They are composed of presents that make a home video look great, but certainly not professional.

Overall: A simple editing workflow, easy to use effects templates, easy video rendering and exporting.

Pros: It does cut editing in a simple way . Great for amateur.

Cons: It is not what I call a good editing program. The interace is badly done. Not enough important option. Only 1 video preview. I mean it might be good for amateur editing but that's it.
