Working with new release (2.6.1) Suspect this might be easier, eventually, but lacks any user documentation for new release. "Intermediate" level users such as myself need guidance on new tools (?Origin X/Y replacing Crop??)

Review by EvD on Oct 29, 2021 Version: 2.6.1 OS: Windows 10 64-bit Ease of use: 6/10 Functionality: 8/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 8/10




Started Openshot. I see 720 / 30 fps. I like to change to 25 FPS, I go to Edit/Settings
Program craches.

Trying to download 2.5.0 but cannot find

Totally disappointed and confused (((

Actually - waste of time. Random crashes. Can't export - crashes again.
Not recommended to even try it.

I like the idea and the look of it, but in use the interface is clunky and counter-instinctive, e.g. it is very fiddly trying to find a particular frame to mark and then cut. The audio is not visible by default and it is very slow to scan a clip to show it. On a fast PC with lots of RAM it should fly smoothly, but it doesn't. It can open off-air HD h.264 TS files, but it stutters and locks up frequently when editing them.

Review by TheDoctor on Jul 26, 2019 Version: 2.4.4 OS: Windows 8 64-bit Ease of use: 1/10 Functionality: 1/10 Value for money: 1/10 Overall: 1/10




Having used much older versions of the program which crashed every few minutes, I was impressed when I edited and exported a video with no problems in about ten minutes

I then tried to make a slide show using around 30 jpg photos and a music track but after trying to fiddle with transitions, the program froze completely. I couldn't close it and didn't know about killw at that stage so I restarted the computer.

When I restarted I tried to open Openshot but it flashed instantly and then closed each time. I thought if I removed my project source files it would be ok, but now while I can open the program I am in a permanent loop demanding I find the directory for the files, but with no 'cancel' option or ability to access the main menu and start a new project. I downloaded the daily update to see if this might make a difference but that is no different.

I am not sure what to do next as somewhere the AppImage file has made start up files but despite lots of searches in system files I cannot find these.
