openshot interface

OpenShotIn case you didn't know it, it is an important and professional free and open source video editor that you can use on your GNU / Linux distribution. It reminds me of other proprietary programs such as Magix Video Deluxe, etc., but that it has little to envy those, since it is quite good and complete. Surely you already know it and have used it at some time to modify videos or create them by adding images, sound tracks or effects, but if you do not know it, I encourage you to try it ...

Now OpenShot has been updated with important improvements as we are going to tell you. You can now download it in its latest version from the official website of the project, there you will find the new version updated since the launch that occurred in July for this app. In the official website You will also find much more information about its developers, guides and user manuals, etc. I take this opportunity to say that sometimes we do not know how to use some software or we have problems and we limit ourselves to searching through Google, but the official websites of the projects have very good guides, manuals and even fantastic Wikis that can help you a lot.

Going back to the main news, that release of Open Shot 2.4.3, to say that it adds support for creating animated skins and transitions using images and videos, a feature that is much appreciated. In addition, it has been improved over the previous version in some respects, for example, it adds real creative flexibility in the editor to allow more imaginative editors to build more innovative content for their montages.

La graphical user interface It has been simplified in this version to be simpler, which allows you to work more quickly and with a wide variety of supported video, sound and image formats, as well as tools to facilitate the sharing of creations on sites such as YouTube, Vimeo, social networks, etc. . You can even export frames to PNG to modify them with Pinta or with GIMP, and much more.
