CapCut, a video editor for Android and iPhone (iOS) phones, does not have a native PC version. However, there are other video editing apps with similar features that can serve as an alternative. OpenShot, for example, works for Windows, Linux and Mac computers and offers a range of advanced 3D video and animation effects. Wondershare Filmora and Movavi have an intuitive interface and simple operation, making them ideal for editing beginners. There are other options with free versions for editing videos on your computer and directly from your browser. Having that on mind, TechTudo prepared a list of five alternative applications for Capcut. Check it out below.
