For those who, like me, are interested in, earlier versions are no longer available at: http://www.shotcut.org/bin/view/Shotcut/OlderBuildsOSX They are available at: https://github.com/mltframework/shotcut/releases By the way, there you can follow all the advancements of the project. You're served!

The App does what it needs to, but it is not as intuitive as other video packages. But those packages cost money. So, if you’re willing to learn a less Mac-like way of operating when selecting ranges, etc. , you’ll probably be very happy with the plethora of control you have over exported files. The UI knocks off a full star and a half, but if you don’t care about the UI, it’d rate a 5.

This editor is good enough. It is free but it does everything I need in video editing and the process is simple. I also like it is cross-platform so I can use it on both my machines, Mac and Windows which is very convenient for me. A lot of features are available.

Note to Developer:
on the home page it says requirements for OS X is 10.8+. On this MacUpdate page it still says 10.6 or later.

It appears Shotcut is using the Qt version 5 framework. For all those with OS X 10.6, note that Qt 5 is no longer tested against 10.6.
http://doc.qt.io/QtSupportedPlatforms/index.html#qt-5-4
And in case some of you don't know, by 'Qt' , does NOT mean QuickTime, it means the Qt development framework that allows you to write programs using the same code that will run on OS X, Windows and Linux. Calibre is a well known, widely used app you may have heard of that also is built using Qt.

A bit of a steep learning curve for someone who's not an expert on video editing tools but amazingly powerful and full featured for a free app (but donations are possible - mine will be on its way very soon!) Thanks to the dev for all his hard work...

I've searched for a software to edit .TS files recorded on my sat receiver for quite some time now. I used to convert it into some editable format using handbrake, then edit out start, end and commercials and finally convert it into MPEG/H.264 or the likes. I also tried Wondershare software which was a rather disappointing experience. Then I stumbled on this piece of software and it just does it for me. It imports .TS files via Finder mounted share off of my sat receiver just fine. I can frame-exact place in and out-markers, add sections to the timeline or the playlist then finally export to a couple dozen video output formats. Okay, the UI could be a bit more simple especially the selection of encoding codecs but other than that this is a truly fine piece of software. @Developer: Thank you very much for the work and effort you've put into this software! I really do appreciate it.
