Ha avanzado considerablemente en 2018 con el agregado de keyframes, pero sigue siendo algo inestable, carece de importantes herramientas (videoscopes, subtítulos, multicam, reverse-clip más eficiente, etc) y algunas de las presentes son muy toscas. Sin embargo, es la segunda mejor opción open-source después de Kdenlive.

Probably one of the most stable open-source video editors out there for Windows.

However, Kdenlive has more features than ShotCut. However, ShotCut has better cross-platform support with binaries for Windows.

I have been using ShotCut for Linux for a while now and I consider it the best legally free NLE currently available (never tried it on Windows) for the hobbyist. Blender has more advanced editing features but Shotcut is easy to use and figure out and works with every format I have thrown at it. The comment the other poster made about "no editing without re-encoding so instant uninstall" is nonsense, by defintion if you edit a video you have to re-encode. With ShotCut you do have the option of a lossless export which you can then feed to your favorite encoder or you can encode from within via x265, x264, vp9 or whatever else you want.

Highly recommended.
