    I currently use Kdenlive for video editing, can anyone list the advantages/differences of Openshot against it?

      Hmmmm... imported a 5min video clip, cut out 30 seconds, fade-in, fade-out, adding audio track. Used 6,5G of my 8G RAM. Rendered it. Machine swapping, choking and freezing.

      Not sure if like.

        I found Openshot to be more intuitive for amateurs than Kdenlive. Every few months I make a music video, i.e. joining audio files from a microphone with the camera video and doing basic adjustments. Those seemed easier to me in Openshot, although I didn't try version 2 yet and used Kdenlive the last time.

        EDIT: For me, Openshot is what Windows Movie Maker always wanted to be.

          Openshot tend to have major memory-leaking problems. Seems that 2.2 didnt much of those. One way to boost things a bit is to drop cache to 0 or very small value from settings. And dont use disk cache.

            I'm a big OpenShot user but I have tried the version 2 and felt totally lost. I just went back 1.4 which IMHO works better.
