And this is our personal list of recommendations:

1. DaVinci Resolve
2. Lightworks
3. Blender
4. Shotcut
5. Kdenlive

  1. The windows version of Kdenlive is like a buggy demo version of the linux version.*
    It is very stripped down in terms of effects, keyframe animation capability and so on.

  2. If you need VFX software under Linux, try Foundry Nuke.
    It's a bit expensive, but a fine alternative to After Effects.
    Also, you could use blender. A bit complicated learning curve, but amazing for being a free and open source software.

  3. I don't know if Lightworks should've been in a top 5 seeing as how the free version is limited to only 720p while Shotcut can actually export up to 8K.

    Speaking of Shotcut, I'm very confused about your comments regarding it. You say you "don't like it very much" but the only negatives you list are a layout you don't like even though the layout in Shotcut is completely customizable and that when you drop a clip it plays automatically in the preview window. I have never experienced a clip playing automatically in the preview window as any sort of problem considering you can easily pause it. It's not going to take you by surprise because if you are dropping the clip into the program then you would already be expecting the clip. It's not like clips start playing randomly by themselves in Shotcut while you are editing. Were those the only reasons why you "don't like it very much"?

    Also, you say the program is "easier" and "has less of a steep learning curve" than other NLEs but you place Blender higher even though Blender's video editor workflow is about the most unintuative one can possibly imagine. Blender's video editor doesn't even have a proper bin or playlist for media which is quite a basic feature for a video editor to have. Also, Shotcut supports almost every codec out there while Blender has limited codec support which is surprising considering it is one of the most well funded free and open source programs out there.

    Blender is a fantastic program but it's clear the video editor is the least developed portion of it. That's why I prefer Shotcut for video editing. However, I would like to ask you something since you are very experienced with Adobe Premiere Pro. How much of the capabilities of Premiere Pro would you estimate can be achieved in Blender's video editor?
