The project files are also cross-platform, which means you can save a video project on one operating system and open it on another. It is suitable for domestic and not so good for professional work, although it has several interesting functions, such as integration with Blender and Inkscape.

OpenShot officially distributed in two ways: through PPA for Ubuntu and through AppImage which is a format that runs on any Linux distribution. Also, it can be installed using Flatpak.
