What do you like best?

The OpenShot Video Editor is video editing software which we can use free. My favorite feature of OpenShot is it has very simple user interface and not request high system requirements. We can download from the website and install within two minutes, By using this video editor we can crop, merge, cut, split and trim video clips. And also it has the capability to merge external audio tracks with video. Not only these things, but also OponShot have many effects to increase the creativity of our project, Such as flying text, adjust brightness, Title Editor and snow.

After Drag and drop media to layers, we can adjust the time frame of that media. When we are going to export video from OpenShot it has given a lot of format and video profile. As a result of that we can control output file quality. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

OpenShot exporting video get more time and sometime it crashed.And also when we merge audio clip to video ,audio quality became low Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I highly recommend OpenShot because of It is completely free and no need previous learning or experience to make your own edited video. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Before OpenShot we used heavy software for video editing. As a result of that we had to buy high performance computers, pay for that software and we had to recruit special stuff for it. But know that all problems solved, the result of OpenShot. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Sumado a eso puedes establecer efectos tales como Efectos digitales de video, incluyendo brillo, gama, tonalidad, escala de grises, inserción chroma (pantalla verde o azul), y otros 20 efectos Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Este editor tiene mas pros que contras, aunque uno de sus desventajas es que requiere un computador con uy buenas caracteristicas, requiere un minimo de 4GB de ram y consume mucha memoria de nuestro disco duro quitandonos la oportunidad o posibilidad de instalar otros programas en nuestro ordenador Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Me gusta porque es gratuito y se puede hacer casi lo mismo que con los softwares pagos. Es una excelente opción gratuita para la edición de vídeos para redes sociales. Tiene una línea de tiempo amplia que permite visualizar muy bien dónde se ubican los elementos, el audio se puede recortar, tiene algunos efectos tanto de transición, como otras aplicables a los vídeos. Es bastante bueno y fácil de usar, en términos generales. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Lo único que me molesta es que para modificar las letras necesito instalar otro software y hacerlo desde allí. Es bastante molesto y me gustaría que viniese integrado al software completo. Cuando los vídeos son largos y con muchos elementos, se paraliza y se cierra el software. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Es un software básico de edición de vídeos, pero si vas a hacer vídeos cortos para redes sociales, incluso si estas comenzando a subir vídeos a Youtube, está muy bien. Recuerda que es gratuito. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Hago contenido con este software cuando no requiere de muchos elementos ya que si sobrepasa su capacidad, colapsa. Es bastante útil para hacer vídeos cortos para redes sociales con música y algunas letras. De esta forma funciona de maravilla, además de que es gratuito lo que le aporta un plus.

What do you like best?

The interface for this is one of the easier ones that I have found, and the best part is, it's free. While you can start editing right away, I do recommend watching a tutorial from Teachers Tech on YouTube (no affiliation) because he had a very thorough review of it and it helped take my editing to the next level. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

While you can start editing right away, it isn't the most user-friendly in terms of layout. Where programs like Da Vinci break it down into frames to allow better quality editing, you don't get that here and you have to keep zooming in and out. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

I'm a newbie when it comes to video editing and this helped me a ton get my editing off the ground. Now that I'm a few months into doing video editing, I can see that this was a great starting point! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

What I like the most is that OpenShot Video Editor is completely free and open source! For home users who are looking to make a video as a part of a presentation or for their own YouTube channel, OpenShot Video Editor fits the bill. OpenShot has a very user friendly interface and you can see all the available features within the main window, so you don't have to around looking through the menu to find one particular feature for editing the video or audio that you need. Every basic feature that one would need is presented in a simple manner to make video editing easy. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I haven't come across anything I dislike. My use for OpenShot Video Editor does not go beyond adding audio clips to existing video clips, cutting audio and video clips, combining two audio clips, etc. So far, OpenShot has managed to allow me to do my work without any issues at all. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I'd highly recommend using OpenShot Video Editor if you're looking for a video editing software for your basic needs such as compiling videos, adding audio or music files to existing video clips, etc or longer videos for YouTube purposes. OpenShot provides everything except graphic editing that suit most, if not all, your needs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

I personally use OpenShot Video Editor for my YouTube channel where I upload compilations of clips from my video game sessions. As someone who's used Windows Movie Maker and Sony Vegas Pro, I'm just astounded at how OpenShot has everything that I needed from Sony Vegas Pro for absolutely no cost of money!

It has now become incredibly easy and time-saving for me to make videos of my game-play with music added in the background on YouTube, which is all I can ask for. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Me encanta lo fácil que es la interfaz de usuario, es intuitiva y es de código abierto. Se puede descargar directamente en su pagina web totalmente gratis. Podemos crear todo tipo de vídeos ya que soporta diferentes formatos. Se pueden agregar varios elementos y ofrece diferentes tipos de transiciones y efectos. Se puede integrar con Blender, Inkscape y con otros softwares para resultados mas profesionales. Es sumamente ligero, consume poca RAM en comparación con otros softwares editores de vídeo. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Lo único que no me agrada de OpenShot es que, cuando le agrego muchos elementos, es capaz de colgarse y tengo que reiniciar para poder continuar. No es algo habitual pero me ha ocurrido unas pocas veces así que intento guardar constantemente. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Es un software que recomiendo, pues no tiene nada que envidiarle a otros softwares más conocidos y de pago. Es un excelente editor de vídeos! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Parte de mi trabajo es crear elementos visuales para el cliente y sus paginas web, entre ellos vídeos de corta duración que no toman mucho tiempo en crearlos. En estos casos, elijo OpenShot porque es gratis, no exige mucha RAM y es compatible con cualquier formato. Debido a que está en constante desarrollo, es un software que tiene mucho potencial, que esta en constante crecimiento y que vale la pena aprender a usar. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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 Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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 Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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 Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I obviously appreciate that its free. It is also simple to import videos into the program from several formats. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

My main issue has been that for any new video clip added, you have to manually reorganize your project to give it space. I have also not found how to mark the beginning and end of each clip which would be helpful instead of manually doing it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

It has been a great free way to edit and compile short videos into longer summaries. Its also helpful that it can take videos from multiple formats. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Title and Effects are the most amazing things in this tool. Since this is cross platform and very user friendly it is easy to use. Interface and the workflow are just too perfect for a video editing tool. Pretty fast and does not log unlike other video editing tools. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

This lags when some effects are applied. Few bugs are there in the software, other than that this is a pretty amazing tool. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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 Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
