> Custom Actions
> It is now possible to arrange custom actions in cascading submenus. Just enter the same submenu name for a custom action in order to place it into the same menu. If you require multiple menu levels, you can achieve that by using '/' in the path of the 'Submenu' entry.*
In 2012 KDE AppMenu Runner was presented as a "plugin which allows to browse, search and select the menubar of the active application".
In 2019 I requested to somehow implement a feature, similar to Blender's "Menu Search"/"Operator Search", into Olive Video Editor.
After it "Action Search" was implemented into Olive Video Editor ('/') shortcut, its code was reused for "Action Search" in Scribus ('Ctrl+/') and then converted into Qt5-plugin.[3,4]
Year later, this Qt5-plugin code reused in for implementing global "Action Search" in helloSystem FreeBSD distribution.
Then "Search and Run a Command" ('/') was added into GIMP.
Guess, GIMP's implementation may be used for other GTK-based apps too (especially Inkscape, which still has no such feature).

DaVinci Resolve 18

> As a hobby videographer using Ubuntu I find myself switching between Kdenlive and Davinci Resolve, depending on the size and complexity of the project. For a small 30-second clip I like the more approachable, simple workflow of Kdenlive but holiday videos with a hundred or more cuts work much better with Davinci for me.
What about FLOSS Olive video editor?[0,1]
As for me, for a small 30-second clip Olive is much better choice than Kdenlive.
YouTubers on Linux, what applications do you primarily rely on and use for A/V creation and editing

For a while I was really hopeful about Olive, but it started an under-the-hood rewrite in mid-2019 and hasn't made much publicly-visible progress since. From what I can tell in the commit history, though, once it's done it'll be really impressive. It looks like it'll actually use the GPU.
UPDATE: After reading 600+ of your comments, here is the updated list of open source Linux programs mostly for beginners (thus mostly gui).

Olive video editor
Olive video editor, it's the editor I used to make this video, it's really awesome! Now if you'll excuse me I have to praise it, I cannot contain myself. It started out in 0.1 as an editor with the common workflow of filters and all that and then when the dev saw that it started to pick up he decided he would rewrite it from scratch to follow a more flexible approach, so in 0.2 he made the shift to node based editing which is just a breeze to work with imo. Another one of the notable features is the video and audio caching that enables for smooth playback while editing, it's fast even on my PC with just 4GB of RAM and an old i3 CPU! Now it does crash on me sometimes, but that's still very impressive, Kdenlive for example crashes about the same, but it has a playback that isn't even comparable. All in all it's looking to be a great video editor, it's still in alpha stage so there aren't that many features as the previously mentioned Kdenlive, and a few things just straight up crash, but the potential for it is very big if you ask me, node based editing would make things so much easier in the long run.
Olive video editor keep in mind it's still in alpha so it's bound to have some bugs/crashes and it won't have as many features, but if you don't do super complex editing it's a solid alternative already
