Shotcut
A cross-platform video editor

Shotcut is a free, open-source and cross-platform video editor.

The program uses the popular FFmpeg to import source files, which means there's no need to worry about format support: it'll open just about every video variant that's ever existed.

There's also support for capturing resolutions up to 4k from SDI, HDMI, webcam, JACK & Pulse audio, IP stream, X11 screen and Windows DirectShow devices.

A straightforward interface ensures you'll be up-to-speed immediately, and offers plenty of ways to customise your working environment.

There are lots of video filters, from simple colour/ brightness/ contrast tweaks, fade ins and outs, transitions and so on, to special effects, video compositing and blending modes, chroma key, HTML overlay and more.

Shotcut offers almost as many audio effects and filters, with fades, balance, bass and treble, band pass, delay, downmix, normalize, pan, reverb and more.

All this is editable on a highly configurable multitrack timeline, then exported in whatever video format you need.

19.04.30 adds (see changelog for more):

- Upgraded Qt to version 5.9.7.
- Changed Width and Height minimum to 0 for Blur filter.
- Set the Save as type list on all file save dialogs (convert, reverse, text, EDL, image).
- Improved the quality of Export Frame > WebP.
- Show “Not Seekable” instead of “Live” when opening a non-seeable clip (or device or stream).
- Show a status message when trying to drag from Project player.
- Prefer loading DLLs in Shotcut’s install folder over those in System32.
- Default the out point of the Color, Count, and Text generator clips to the same as image duration (default 4 seconds).
- Added Offset to Timer video filter.
- Added Vertical HD 30 fps and Vertical HD 60 fps video modes.
- Added support for HTTPS.
- Added --QT_SCALE_FACTOR and --QT_SCREEN_SCALE_FACTORS command line options.
- Added English (Great Britain) translation.

Verdict:

Shotcut isn't for the complete video editing novice, but it's not difficult to use, and if you're willing to spend time learning the basics then there's a lot of power just waiting to be unleashed.

Windows 10 May 2019 Update ISO (build 1903)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

May 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1903 which is the May 2019 Update.
