With the effort of Jonathan Thomas now the professional video editing app Lightworks also developed it's award winning application of Linux.
After being pledged $45,028 out of $20,000 target on kickstarter and after long time of 3 years in making Openshot 2.0 is finally released on January 11, 2016 not only for Linux but for Mac OS and Windows also meaning its cross platform.
