Under Windows you may have used software like Adobe Premiere Pro or CyberLink PowerDirector 365. Both are expensive subscription based proprietary software. What about a free and open source replacement?
OpenShot Video Editor
OpenShot Video Editor is designed to be an easy to use, quick to learn, and surprisingly powerful video editor.
OpenShot can read and write most video and image formats. It comes with a powerful key frame animation framework, and it’s capable of an unlimited number of key frames and animation possibilities. There’s unlimited tracks/layers, over 400 video transitions with real-time previews, advanced timeline, frame accuracy, audio mixing and editing, and much more.
It doesn’t offer all the functionality compared to the two heavyweight proprietary software. But for many of you, it offers a great alternative for video editing. And it’s under active development with new features being added.
There’s an Ubuntu package for OpenShot Video Editor available to install from the Ubuntu Software app.
