Hi Ugin

Cinelerra is aimed more at professional users. Cinelerra is very 
extensive concerning the possibilities and requires a certain training 
period. You can certainly call some other video editing programs that, 
if you like, but Cinelerra stands out in some respects.
What might make Cinelerra better compared to the other video editors is 
the extensive masking (the other NLE's definitely don't have it), LV2 
support (as far as I know only Cinelerra can handle it currently), 8K 
support, nested clips, Smart Folders (doesn't have any of the other open 
source programs), support from the shuttle controllers, multicamera 
support including audio track synchronization.
I would say that these are definitely some professional features 
compared to the other NLEs.
