    "Kdenlive mostly worked well in helping me solve my problems with making YouTube intros, but it is not for everyone. It has a lot of functions but is not always the absolute easiest to use. I would recommend it to power users or to those who want something customized and know how to make it, but those intimidated by complex movie-making software might feel overwhelmed - if you've only used built-in Windows tools and other free solutions, you might not fully be able to take advantage of everything offered."
