This is a question more out of curiosity than anything else. I saw an uptick in my friends and co-workers in k-12 education learning basic video production this past spring. As Covid hit and schools shut down, I think more and more educators were forced to find their own resources to create meaningful, effective lessons for their students. I think many of them gravitated toward OpenShot for its simplicity as they were just looking for simple segment stitching and text features, and not necessarily sophisticated editing. However, I don’t think my industry is the only one that has had to learn how to make videos.
Just wondering, have the admins here seen an associated jump in Shotcut downloads? I’d be curious to know those stats and how they relate to people trying to work and communicate more from home.
