"Creating stunning videos had never been easier"

What do you like best?

the best thing i like about openshot is the level of simplicity this software provides .Its just so wonderful to see how easy it is to navigate through the options .It was easy to learn more easy than adobe premier pro which was so much confusing.Now i have a good hand on openshot,my friends firsts thought i was an expert in movie making.I installed it and use the to convert , edit,crop , video, even though i have a low graphic card which is entry level it performs so well the software is well optimized. openshot support 70 plus languages as i have my friends overseases who struggle sometimes to navigate and get a effect done so i can easily let them know and help by whats going worng.the best thing is it is a free software which is available to every one on the internet to download and get their hands on.

What do you dislike?

Its a Open-source software so we users have to be patience if we get any issues or find our own solutions for them. scrollling through the timeline lags sometime and it wiil be good if the theme options for the software would be more ,it also gets buggy sometimes they need to get the small updates to overcome thatso it wont crash

Recommendations to others considering the product:

i will definitely recommend to my kids and my friends and teach them as it is pretty easy to use the software and be a professional video editor and create best movies

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

it has been a benifit if i look back at my journey with it as i can just put in my drone footage and edit it quick without engaging in any other software and worry about the prices to pay as openshot is a free software and easy to use than many other software in the competition

"Gratuito y funcional"

What do you like best?

Es un software gratuito de código libre. Tiene varios efectos de transición, se puede animar el texto, modificarlo y agregar elementos de diversos tipos. Me gusta la integración con Blender e Inkscape ya que permite ampliar las funciones del programa, mejorar los textos, hacer imágenes y animaciones de cualquier tipo.

What do you dislike?

Me incomoda que necesite de softwares externos como Inkscape y Blender ya que incrementa la curva de aprendizaje, debido a que debes aprender a usar los tres softwares para lograr hacer un vídeo profesional. Para ser gratis está muy bien, pero los softwares de pago son mucho más fáciles de usar y disponen de muchos más efectos.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Es un excelente software tomando en cuenta que es gratuito y de código abierto. Si se logra superar la curva de aprendizaje, se pueden hacer vídeos de excelente calidad. Para novatos va muy bien ya que tiene las funciones básicas y son muy fáciles de usar.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Hago mucho material de apoyo para las clases que dicto, algunas veces debo hacer vídeos y esta es la herramienta que uso. Los vídeos que hago son básicos, con texto, transiciones y algunas animaciones sencillas pero las veces que he intentado hacer algo más elaborado me he topado con trabas debido a que debo saber manejar muy bien Inkscape y Blender. No está mal, pero muchas veces es mejor la simplicidad. Creo que para novatos como yo, el uso de las funciones básicas esta bien. Cumple con el objetivo y lo más importantes, es gratuito y al alcance de todos.

"Powerful Yet Free Video Editor"

What do you like best?

The design was easy enough for someone like me to do basic editing and I am not the best at learning new programs.

What do you dislike?

All free programs have some issues and don't have very good support if you need to know how to do something. I only ran into a little bit with this, or crashing, but it wasn't that annoying.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Have everything you want before using it. The only difficulty I had was rearranging things so I had to start over a few times. But I'm not the best at fixing things like that so maybe you won't have this issue

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were able to use this to put together a video about our clinic to show the construction and progress and what it is now for promotion in our website. It was a one time use but it helped a lot and didn't cost a hundred dollars.
