OpenShot Video Editor is an open-source editor with many powerful features.

The program's use of FFmpeg means it's able to properly handle many different video, audio and image formats.

There's drag and drop support for importing clips, resizing and repositioning them on the program's multi-track timeline.

Right-clicking a selected clip gives you a quick idea of what can be done, with options including Copy, Paste, Fade, Animate, Rotate, Time (speed or slow the clip), Volume and Slice (trim or cut your movie).

Experienced editors will appreciate the video transitions, overlays, watermarks, title creators and templates, rotoscoping support, key frame animation, and range of digital effects.

Once you've finished, a Profile-based Export dialog helps you choose the best file format and settings for Blu-ray/ AVCHD, DVD, device or web use.

See the Release Notes for more information.

Verdict:

OpenShot is a capable video editor with plenty of features and functionality. Just be aware, you may have to spend a little time setting it up and learning how everything works.

Click Title > Animated Titles, for instance, and a dialog explains that you must download and install the open-source Blender, then point OpenShot at its executable, before the feature will work. That's not difficult, but if you just want something quick and easy then it could be annoying.
