I don’t mean to go off topic here, but there are only three programs that I have counted on time and time again throughout the years that have never crashed. Notepad, Snipping Tool & 7Zip. Somewhere in my closet is a box full of floppy disks that may have had one or two great programs that didn’t have problems.
Vegas Pro is superior to Shotcut, as long as you’re willing to pay the price, and with the price of the add on filters or effects, you’ll pay for that software until they go bankrupt. Even discussing the Adobe world, they have bugs too. Many of the same issues that happen in Shotcut, can be widely searched within numerous Adobe platform forum groups. Even though I don’t have Adobe (except for Reader) I find their forums very informative and learn from other’s techniques they use.
If I had my choice, and the disposable income to throw at Adobe, I wouldn’t be here. But my video editing needs don’t even come close to needing something other than Shotcut. Perhaps one day they might, but I just don’t see it.
Here is a video by EposVox, pretty much talking about the reasons why he needs Abobe, as it’s his job for doing video on a daily basis, and why he’s in the Adobe world. It’s a really great discussion on NLE’s in general.
