OpenShot is a non-linear video editing program that can be a great alternative to Windows Movie Maker, and surpasses it in terms of features and tools. OpenShot is developed according to the standards of free and open source software and can work in most popular operating systems.
This video editor is perfect for editing clips, presentations, preparing video blogs for YouTube and simple movies, and can also create slideshows from images. A large number of effects are available to the user, including animated transitions between takes, color correction, different ways of mixing overlapping fragments and the ability to process video shot with chromakey to create combined effects.
The OpenShot interface is traditional for video editors and will not cause difficulties in mastering, especially if the user already has experience in other video editing programs. Beginners can turn on the interactive wizard at startup, which allows you to quickly get acquainted with the interface and basic methods of working with the editor. The main tools are the player window, where you can view in real time the edited clips, library windows with effects, transitions and properties of the selected objects, and the window with the working material. And, of course, an editing table or a time-line on which all the main work takes place - the layout of clips, the location of sound fragments, the installation of the beginning and end of the effects and other actions that provide non-linear editors.
