The Shotcut to your video editing!
Pros & Cons:
Shotcut has advanced graphical node based compositing with:
- "Effects Strips": Essentially generates a strip in the sequence editor that you can layer above the target media strip. Like using a Photoshop layer for one specific effect.
- Decent audio mixing capabilities
- Fantastic motion tracking (advantage of being built into your creation suite)
It also supports a lot of media formats via FFmpeg and screen, webcam, and audio capture. It has timeline for non-linear video editing of multiple tracks that may be composed of various file formats. Scrubbing and transport control are assisted by OpenGL GPU-based processing and a number of video and audio filters are available.
It includes a lot of features for a free licensed software product which makes it even more reliable, saves time, money and a lot of effort as it simplifies your video editing!
