"Why is OpenShot the most successful open source application of its kind right now?

"When I started OpenShot I also started a blog. This blog allowed the ?early adopters? to give me feedback, let me know what worked well, and what needed to be fixed. The blog was so successful that, although I had no contributors helping me yet, I did not feel alone. We were building a community around OpenShot that believed the same thing as me: we want a simple, powerful video editor that actually works on Linux. We never wanted to add the ?most? features, but rather just the features our users actually wanted. OpenShot is still one of the only video editors (open-source or commercial) that supports full 3D animations, simulations, and titles, such as a 3D globe that can animate a path between two sets of latitude and longitude coordinates, falling snow, and much more. The community gets to decide what applications are the best, and that is where OpenShot excels, by listening to the community, and allowing them to participate in the development of OpenShot."
