It is pretty good, but the release I used (0.1.2) still had some shortcomings. I remember those were fixed on master, but master was broken in other ways at that time - not sure if things have stabilized since. So "one to keep an eye on" when more releases appear.
I'll definitely bookmark shortcut for next time, I don't think I had seen it before!
@lenzgr Will give it a try. Had to do this once a few years ago and "intuitive to use" would not have been the term I would use for the tools I tried then.
@lenzgr I actually like KdeNLive. How does it shotcut compare? (I've not experienced any crashes with KdeNLive but I've heard they are common)
@delegatevoid Kdenlive is a pretty solid alternative, too, and probably more powerful than Shotcut (the user interface is definitely more "crowded" and it provides a wider range of effects).
As I'm using the GNOME desktop, it is a tad bit more resource-intensive (as it's using the KDE Framework). Both are great and get the job done.
I think it's actually awesome that there's so much choice nowadays. Other great candidates I'm aware of: Blender, Flowblade, Olive, OpenShot and Pitivi.
