I might have been able to deal with boring and ugly, but the interface is shit; pass. Maybe when this is released I'll care again.

A video editor, and more; too much more.

A terrible initial impression; it requires some patience, watching a tutorial and following instructions. Don't wander around; don't use strange features, and stay in the "Edit" view!
