OpenShot is a free, cross-platform, open source program that serves as a good alternative to Adobe Premiere and After Effects if you don’t mind missing some extra features.

One thing I enjoyed while using it is the ability to arrange the tracks in anyway you want and place any kind of media in them rather than being restricted to audio and video specific layers like you’ll find in Adobe products.

OpenShot is a solid solution for aspiring filmmakers seeking to get their feet wet without breaking the bank.
