Free High-Resolution Video Editing Software for Personal Use

OpenShot is professional video editing software which can provide superior results when working with HD files. As it is able to modify videos in 4K resolution, this package is perfect for anyone who requires an advanced template. This package is designed for use on laptops and personal computers.

Features and Main Applications

OpenShot is primarily intended to handle high-definition videos. Supported resolutions include 4K, 5K, 1080p and 5K. Some features worth mentioning include improved stability, higher levels of performance (when compared to previous versions) and a new caching system that is ideal for larger video editing projects. In the most recent version (2.2), unique editing options such as the ability to add title templates are now included. Subtitles can likewise be embedded when necessary. These are both very useful options for those who wish to enjoy superior levels of video editing within a streamlined package. There is no charge to download and use this editing software.

Other Functions and Improvements

Recent updates have dramatically streamlined the user interface as well as the associated editing capabilities. All changes can be saved in the event of a crash.
