OpenShot video editor

OpenShot was created in 2008, in an effort to build a free, simple, open-source video editor for Linux. It is now available on Linux, Mac, and Windows.

We recomend this video editor for its relative ease of use and it’s multiplatform availability.

The official tutorial videos cover everything you will need to get started, the first three cover understanding the OpenShot interface and basic controls, the fourth covers timming, slicing and splitting which will be useful for those looking to alter the length of videos, remove sections or add in other media.

Trim, slice and split. Change the length of recordings or insert other media.
