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.
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.
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.
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.
