OpenShot video editor added to Video directory.

OpenShot is a free, open source, video editor for Mac, Linux and Windows. OpenShot can take your videos, photos, and music files and help you create the film you have always dreamed of. Easily add sub-titles, transitions, and effects, and then export your film to DVD, YouTube, Vimeo, Xbox 360, and many other common formats.
OpenShot has many great features, such as trimming and arranging videos, adjusting audio levels, transitions between videos, compositing multiple layers of video, chroma-key / green screen effect, and support of most formats and codecs.
What really sets OpenShot apart from other video editors is the easy-to-use user interface. Developers worked very hard to create a video editor that everyone can enjoy!
Want to really impress someone with your video? Need to add some extra oomph to your video? With OpenShot, you can create 3D animated title sequences, which are guaranteed to impress your viewers!
Most 3D animation software is very difficult to use, but not OpenShot. With just a few clicks of your mouse, you will have created your first animation! Behind the scenes we use the amazing open-source 3D package Blender.
With dozens of audio and video effects at your finger tips, what will you create? Perhaps the next big Internet sensation? Maybe a mash-up of your favorite television show? Or, perhaps editing your home video collection and sharing them with friends and family?
