I majored in cinema so I have used a lot of paid/free apps for video editing.
Blender gave me quite a headache while learning modeling and texturing, but it’s actually very good as a video editor.
Many video editors are limitd for the free use, or many of them are too bloated/too slow.
I was surprised how simple/fast/useful blender is for editing video files.
Heck, I don’t have to pay for the adobe premiere anymore.
